Franklin Canyon Hike
Franklin Canyon Hike

The Santa Monica Mountains rise above Los Angeles, widen to meet the curve of Santa Monica Bay, and reach their highest peaks facing the ocean, forming a beautiful and multi-faceted landscape. Located in a Mediterranean ecosystem, the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area contains a wide variety of plants and wildlife.

For a short but pretty hike in Beverly Glen, take Scenario Lane off N. Beverly Glen Place to the top (steep) or Selkirk Lane. This overlooks Stone Canyon Reservoir and was once the site of George Harrison’s house, until the earth gave ‘way underneath the stone slab. Luckily, George wasn’t home at the time.

NOTE: When hiking past Glen homes, please respect your neighbors and keep quiet. Thank you.
