This canyon site is so serene and beautiful. Not only did I get a wonderful workout I also gained a great sense of peace. I highly recommend it.

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.

I don't really consider this one a "hike"- it won't really give u a workout but if you're a beginner & you're looking for a pretty and easy starting point, this is probably it.

This is a great place to take beginner hikers, anyone just starting to venture into the outdoors, and kids of all ages including those in strollers. There are plenty of paved roads that make for even and easy walking. There are a lot of spots for picnicking, too. For hikers, it's not much of a hike, although the scenery is really beautiful. The trees are magnificent! There are also a lot of different trails you can take off the road that will change up the terrain for you. Although the vast majority of it still remains easy. So, what I like to do when I feel it's too easy is to just add more kick to my step and take a trail run. Because of the paved roads, and flat trails (except around the lake, it's a little overgrown and uneven), this is a good place to do some easy trail running and rehab an injured ankle like mine.

It's a very pretty site and despite the other comments it is a fairly busy place. I wen there early in the morning during the weekend and a lot of people were walking on the road around the lake for their workout. The trail around the lake is very pretty, there are a lot of ducks and few turtles in a side pond. Great place to walk around with your kids or dogs.

Hikers if you are looking for a little challenge, sorry to disappoint you but this is not the place. It is very flat and short.
