Hidden gem of a trail. Can be tricky to get to the first time, but is worth the time. There are several trails up in the area. The Hastain loop will take you up a steady grade though not too steep to a view of Los Angeles below. Continue down the hill to the bottom of the loop and you will hit switchbacks to a grassy lawn below. A little further up the road you will come to the lake. It is not that far and you can take a path that starts at the head of Lake Drive with a stairway and follow the path to the lake. The defintely has other people using the trails but it is not too crowded, probably because it is a bit out of the way.

This is more like a very nice "walk in the park" .. very easy , no climbing or strenuous effort needed . Nice picnic area by the small lagoon with koi fishes and ducks.

This a great place to visit. You don't have to travel that far to find a nice atmosphere and to feel that you are out of the big city.

The Sooki Goldman Nature Center is a great place to bring children to introduce them to the excitement of exploring the canyons of the Santa Monica Mountains. Birthday parties can be arranged in their multi-purpose room and there is an ample outdoor amphitheater. Ducks and geese are regularly seen gliding around the Upper Franklin Reservoir.

Not the most exciting trail, but a nice easy break from the city.

You can take one of two paths going up--a wide fire road, or a narrow trail that is much steeper and feels like more a hike, which you might almost miss. I highly recommend the trail--the road is wide and less exciting. Either way, you'll get some good exercise and a nice break from the city without having to drive too far away.
