If you’re in the L.A. area and feeling the need to get outside and get some exercise, we understand. According to Dr. Barbara Ferrer, director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, even during a pandemic, hiking is a great way to get exercise.

1. Parker Mesa and Los Liones Trail
Beach hikes are a favorite with some hikers. This specific hike begins in popular Pacific Palisades and finishes in Topanga State Park. Along the way, you’ll be cutting through verdant hillsides and take in wonderful views of the California coastline.
This hike is more than 7 miles long. It intercepts the local Los Liones Trail and heads towards the Parker Mesa overlook. Much of the trail is exposed, so it’s great for a sunny day in February and a little more uncomfortable in the summer months.
