Just a short drive from downtown Culver City is a pawtastic park where you can enjoy some fresh air and lovely scenery with your pup. With several miles of trails, acres of rolling hills, and a number of activities, the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area is the perfect spot for a fun afternoon outdoors!
The Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area covers 401 acres and is often described as clean, peaceful, and beautiful by visitors. There’s a lot to do here for both humans and canines, and hiking is one of the most popular activities among pup parents and their furkiddos. Most of the trails in the park are easy to moderate. For a quick and pleasant stroll, check out the 0.8-mile Bowl Loop. This paved trail runs around the perimeter of Janice’s Green Valley, a former reservoir now dotted with trees, and past the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Tree Grove.
Another nice trail is the La Brea Loop in the southern section of the park. This 1.8-mile footpath links to many other trails, features multiple viewpoints, and passes by the Butterfly and Hummingbird Gardens. For a longer adventure, don’t miss the 2.6-mile Community Loop, which will take you and Fido to most of the park’s highlights. Follow the trail to Burke Roche Point, Janice’s Green Valley, Randi’s Waterfall, the Japanese Garden, Gwen Moore Lake, and a man-made babbling brook. You’ll also see grrreat views of downtown LA, the Hollywood Hills, and the San Gabriel Mountains along the way.
Whichever trail you choose, make sure to keep your pooch on a leash at all times. Benches, picnic tables, and trash cans are available throughout the park, but remember to bring your own water and waste bags. Parking is free and aplenty on weekdays, and the vehicle entrance fee of $7 is only collected on weekends and holidays.
So what are you waiting for? A pawsome outdoor adventure awaits you and your pup at the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area!
