Tucked in the canyon behind Peck Pack is a great little hiking trail that snakes around the neighborhood.  It's quite beautiful, actually, and you can get close to nature even though you are never far from houses and streets.

I've hiked this trail off and on for over 10 years and if you live in the vicinity of Peck Park you don't have to drive to get there.  Just walk out of your house and in a couple of blocks you'll be on the trail.

You can enter the trail from Bandini, Western, Walker and a few other streets as well.  Occasionally you might have to walk a few blocks of sidewalk to link up with a trail segment but no worries.

The trail winds around the canyon with a decent amount of inclines and declines to get the heart pumping.  You could jog, if that's your thing, and get a cardio workout.

You can get some great views of downtown Los Angeles from some of the higher points and the foliage and colors change nicely with the seasons. The photo shown here was taken one year ago when we had more rain and the canyon looks like some luscious hiking trail you might find in Hawaii.

Check it out and enjoy!

Great picture, and I wish more people used the trails.

Do you do Triple Hill? I've watched the HS cross country teams on that and it's a killer!
