What you'll do

Come explore the San Gabriel Mountains just above Los Angeles! We’ll hike about 3-4 miles (depending on the exact route) along a moderate trail that straddles 2 incredible mountain canyons. I’ll show you the gorgeous plant life, geography, and views as we hike along the ridge line. In the spring and early summer the wildflowers and blossoming trees are fragrant and out-of-this-world beautiful!

On the hike we'll see unique, panoramic views of two major mountain canyons. I’ll share with you the history and geography of LA and Southern California as we go along.

And, of course, there will be ample stops for unforgettable photos from the best vantage points, and I will be happy to take memorable photos of you and your friends/family.

You will be relaxed and refreshed after this wild & beautiful breath of fresh air that is amazingly close to the city!

Please CONTACT ME if you want to arrange a different time or date that isn't listed.

Meet your host, Daniel

Host on Airbnb since 2016
  • Identity verified
Hiking & traveling are some of my favorite activities, and I love sharing beautiful places & adventures with others. I’ve hiked & backpacked around the world (45 countries on 5 continents), so I’ve got interesting stories to tell as well. I’m a history aficionado, and my own family has roots in Los Angeles that go back over 100 years. I’ll share some of the fascinating history & geography of LA along the way.

While I give the tours in English, I've lived in Japan and Europe, & I speak some Japanese, Spanish, French, & a little Italian to help visiting guests enjoy the experience.

I’m an avid photographer as well (especially landscape photography), & I’ll help you get fantastic photos from the best views.

I’ve been leading hikes for years. The mountains above LA are a special, & I look forward to taking you on a great experience!

Where you'll be

We will meet just before the start of the Angeles Crest Highway and then drive together a few miles to the trailhead. We'll hike up a moderate trail to multiple vista points straddling two canyons and take snack & photo breaks frequently along the way and return to the same trailhead at the end. You will be refreshed & relaxed after this beautiful breath of fresh air!
