Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook

Many of you have probably heard of this trail. It is where you will find the very intense Culver City stairs. That said, if you are looking for a path that will make you sweat, Baldwin Hills is it. Once you reach the top, it will all be worth it. The view is magnificent! You can see the Hollywood sign and the ocean from different vantage points.

Bluffs Creek Trail

Just five miles away from Upper Ivy is Bluffs Creek Trail in Playa Del Rey. More than anything else, this trail is another perfect nature walk. Unlike Ballona, it is a lot longer. The total distance is about 4 miles and is flat for the most part. 

Runyon Canyon

Last up is a staple trail of Los Angeles. It is also the furthest from your apartments (nine miles away to be exact). However, it is worth mentioning. Runyon Canyon has a great dog park at the bottom and multiple areas to do yoga. Best of all, it includes several different trails varying in difficulty. You can have a simple hike with the pup and a hardcore uphill run. Do know that it is always crowded. At the moment, it is still closed but check their website regularly for updates.
