POINT DUME

So far my favourite beach in Los Angeles with a little hike as a bonus. I would recommend to park bellow the Point Dume trail. Its worth the 8 dollars for a day.  Go up for short hike with great views and seals spotting and later enjoy the walk in gorgeous beach. You can finish your perfect morning having lunch in Sunset restaurant in the entrance of the parking area of Point Dume.

KINGS CANYON NATIONAL PARK and SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK

The perfect place for a long weekend out of LA. I have to admit lately i was missing a bit of greenery. I wanted to see a forest, smell water in the air and be somewhere without phone signal…Oh the perfect Sequoia park!

I can only recommend Montecito Lodge and their lovely forest cabins with great views and enough space for your family.

Some of the hikes we did with stroller /some hikes have a concrete or dirt path/  but obviously I would recommend to bring a carrier and enjoy the real hiking experience in the wilderness.  We loved the hike from Roaring river falls to Zumwalt meadow and Congress trail.

 

I was so excited to see a bear – preferably from the car – but unfortunately we didn’t

 

FRAKLIN CANYON PARK – PART II

What is great about the Hastain Trail?  You park right in the beginning of the walk, it’s circular, not too short but easily done in hour or two, has a great view of the city and it’s in Beverly Hills

Officially this hikes end here with the view of the reservoir but continue up through the cut fence until the end. Its only a short climb and so worth it

It’s impossible to do Hastain Trail with a stroller but you can do it with a carrier. Just be careful with the descent on the way back it is a little steep.

You finish the hike in a meadow with a amphitheater and picnic tables

FRANKLIN CANYON PARK – part I

If you want to go out in this heat this is the place for you. Lovely shade and breeze over the water will make you company on the easy walk around the reservoir. The only thing i didn’t like is that its too short.

If you’re still hungry for more, as we were, change comfy stroller for a carrier and try hike up the hill to have a full view of the reservoir.

Don’t forget  make the round walk again but close to the water. I can only imagine how great adventure this will be for your 3 year old.
