nullAs the winter sets in upon Los Angeles (yes, we do have a winter here), the daylight hours get fewer and the snow on the big peaks gets deeper (hopefully).

I think this season, instead of planning to do long snow-treks in the hinterlands and then waking up too late to get on the road, I was thinking of focusing on some of the closer trails in the Santa Monica Mountains, western Angeles National Forest, and Griffith Park — those shorter trails that I tend to overlook, but everyone else who wants to hike in LA is really interested in.

I’ll still get the occasional “Big Hike” in there — just to keep the legs in good condition — but was wondering if anyone had any areas they were specifically interested in having me cover. If so, leave a comment or drop me a line!
