Hikes for LA Kids: Best Hiking Trails for Families in LA & OC

Hiking with Children in Los Angeles & Orange County

It's the weather. Let other states boast about their cheese; we know they'd rather have our weather. Hiking season? Ha! LA's hiking season starts January 1 and ends December 31; there's hardly a day in the year when the hills don't beckon.  We've got hikes in the woods, hikes by the beach, stroller-friendly hikes, hikes near the stars' homes, and hikes to world-famous landmarks. If you keep an eye on our daily calendar, you'll also spot an assortment of free, ranger-led hikes in the Southland's many city, state, and national parks. And keep checking this page, because we're adding new hikes that our team of parents have tried all the time.
