Hikes For Beginners

Looking for great locations to go on easy hikes/nature walks with my nine year old, husband, and leashed doggo in Southern California. We relocated from the East Coast a year ago, so I'm hoping to learn about some great spots from y'all!

Hey @mamasaurus you're going to love getting outside all year round in So Cal!  For location recommendatiosn I'd check out the LA board above under Local Happenings, you will probably get a faster answer there.  Happy hiking! 

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

Thanks @REI-LeslieN !


REI has an awesome resource for finding hiking trails in your area. It has topographical details and ratings so you can make sure it's nine-year-old/husband friendly. It's called Adventure Projects. Check it out:
