The gym isn’t the only place you can get a great workout in. I’m grateful to live in an area with countless hiking trails, and I try to take advantage of it! It gives me a chance to get outdoors, get some fresh air, and get away from the craziness of LA for a while. Such a great way to clear your head and let go of some stress and anxiety. Have a dog? Take your cute pup for a hike with you!
Runyon Canyon is a staple in my area because it is so convenient. However, on the weekends taking a drive out to Malibu to explore the trails out there is fun! Zuma, Temescal Canyon, Solstice Canyon, and Escondido Falls are a few of the favorites!
My hiking essentials? A bottle of water, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, and a fanny pack! Totally love to sport a fanny pack (so happy these came back in style!) as a convenient way to hold my phone, keys, and chapstick. (Chapstick is one of my desert island items!)
For longer hikes, I always make sure to pack extra water and a protein bar or almonds for energy in case.
