What’s the most beautiful hike in SoCal?

Southern California is lauded for its natural beauty, and sometimes it can be difficult to choose the best and most beautiful trails through the region. Some of the top-rated trails include the Solstice Canyon Trail in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, with its lush natural environment, expansive wildlife, and stunning views of the ocean, and the hike to the Bridge to Nowhere in the Angeles Forest. The 10-mile round trip takes folks through the San Gabriel Valley and to the impressive and abandoned bridge that spans the San Gabriel River.

Which state parks should I visit in SoCal?

There are many gorgeous state parks located throughout Southern California, and each has a spectacular range of focus. Whether you enjoy fishing, camping, hiking, or water sports, a visit to Cuyamaca State Park is sure to deliver, or perhaps the famed Malibu Creek State Park or El Capitan Beach State Park. Most parks in the southern part of the state boast desert vistas or expansive ocean views. Chino Hills State Park is located inland and has over 60 miles to hike and explore if you’re looking for a bit of nature to enjoy. Looking to head to the beach? Crystal Cove State Park is a 3-mile gem with beachfront beauty that’ll challenge any view in the state. It’s simply stunning!

Does SoCal have any natural wonders?

Southern California is rife with natural wonders, whether you’re visiting the cacti-studded Joshua Tree National Park with its native plant- life, or the Death Valley “Racetrack” that’s home to the Sailing Stones that seem to move on their own. Zabriskie Point in Death Valley is made up of sediment from a dried-up lake from 5 million years ago, making for some of the most unique landscapes in the state, and the strange tufa spires known as the Trona Pinnacles in the Mojave Desert is a true sight to behold. Of course, if you’re wondering where the largest fig tree in the United States is located? It’s in Santa Barbara.
