Humor Travel Life
People who’ve never visited Los Angeles, California probably have assumptions about the city and what to expect. One of the most accurate LA stereotypes, though, is that we love to hike. And LA – or California for that matter – has no shortage of stunning hikes with ocean views to explore.
Malibu, which has both the Santa Monica Mountains and a beautiful coastline (seriously, the water is bluer there!), has multiple hiking trails available. However, not all of them have ocean views or enough available parking. If you’re looking for one of the best beach hikes in Los Angeles my recommendation is to check out the Zuma Ridge Trail. Even on a weekend we were able to find parking. Plus, there was only a handful of other hikers on the trail, which is great for those looking to avoid the crowds.
In total, the trail is about 5.6 miles, so it’s definitely a longer hike, but the views are totally worth it. Zumba Ridge Trail is also a dog-friendly hike so definitely feel free to bring your fur baby along with you. Those of us who love to say hello to dogs will also be grateful your pup joined you too.
