Hiking the Paseo Miramar Trail

0 comments suggest edit

Today Akumi and I hiked the Paseo Miramar trail. To get there, simply take the PCH North till you get to Sunset. Take a right onto Sunset, and go up a little ways till you see Paseo Miramar on the left. Take it till it dead ends and look for street parking.

The trail itself almost instantly has gorgeous views of the Pacific and the coast line of Santa Monica. Unfortunately, today was a bit hazy. I was hoping for the clarity that most assuredly would have been the result had we hiked just after the rains.

The hike itself is around 5 miles (round trip) and at the end you’re greeted with a nice overlook.

On the way back, we met one of the native inhabitants of the Santa Monica Mountains.

    I really enjoyed the trail! There are 3 different trails of varying miles (1.7, 4.3 & 7.2) that is only one way so if you decide to do the 4.3 trail, you'll actually be doing close to 9mi. The views are absolutely majestic. I highly recommend it

    Love, love, love this trail. I always take guests on this hike and it's perfect b/c the views are beautiful and it's not too difficult of a hike for anyone. It's a bit too intense for my parents who prefer a relaxing easy hike, but it's a lot of fun if you want a moderate workout and beautiful scenery.

    No this is NOT the same as temescal canyon.  This is a prettier, longer, less visited hike.
