Unlike the ever-popular John Muir Trail and Pacific Crest Trail, almost nobody knows of the existence of the Silver Moccasin Trail—a 53 mile foot path that traverses Angeles National Forest through large sections of the gorgeous San Gabriel Wilderness.
Home to 3.4 million acres and 91% designated wilderness, Death Valley National Park is an isolated land of sparkling salt flats, winding canyons, shifting sand dunes, and incredible backpacking opportunities.
Home to the highest point in the contiguous United States, the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere, and the oldest living tree in the world, Inyo County is a land of extremes (and extreme adventure).
Have an adventurous weekend at Hermosa, Manhattan, and Redondo beaches in L.A.
