Directions to Trailhead

Hiking the Ascot Hills Trail is a short and sweet outdoor experience that offers some nice views of Los Angeles. While out on the trail, you will loop around Ascot Hills Park, traversing the undulating terrain and climbing up to some radio towers for a sweeping view of the surrounding area. Make sure to bring plenty of water if the weather is warm, as this trail offers little protection from the sun.

Route Description for Ascot Hills Trail

Whether you are looking to take the dog out for some exercise or simply want to take in some pleasant scenery, the Ascot Hills Trail is a great route to explore in the L.A. area.

Setting out from the trailhead, you will make your way to the northwest and begin gradually climbing upwards through the hilly terrain. Eventually, the path will turn more to the east, before pushing further uphill to a series of radio towers.

Once you have reached the towers, you will enjoy a great sightline overlooking the city and surrounding landscape. Once you have soaked up the scenery, make your way south to complete the loop on your return to the trailhead where you started your adventure.
