Spring has arrived & our team took a weekend adventure to uncover the hidden things to do right here in Los Angeles! It truly feels amazing to know that there’s a variety of exciting activities to consider right in the heart of LA. We’d like to be the first at giving you the BUZZ on all the great things to do this spring.
Check below, you’ll find all the exciting things we discovered on our adventure….
Wisdom Tree Hiking Trail:
The Wisdom Tree hiking trail is truly beautiful. Roughly 3 miles full of breath taking views of Griffith Park. Full of history, great hikes, & even more rugged than most major city parks in the country.
“THIS HIKE HAS AN AMAZING VIEW OF LOS ANGELES ONCE YOU REACH THE TOP. CHALLENGING & FUN! I RECOMMEND TO BRING SNACKS, WATER, & DON’T FORGET YOUR CAMERA.” – RACHEL
The Deets: Take on the challenge & visit the tree of wisdom! This trail has a view that’s absolutely stunning once you reach the top. The trail is easy to follow. However, there are a few rugged areas ( in comes the challenge!) Also, it takes about 2 hours to reach the top & back. There’s free parking on Lake Hollywood Drive. No passes or permits needed & beware of the street signs as there’s no parking from 9 PM to 6 AM every night.)
