The LATH Digital Team keeps you updated on upcoming LATH hikes/events, provide outdoor news/updates, share fun pictures, and help answer your hiking or LATH questions. So make sure you connect with us online!  If you take pictures on our hikes, don’t forget to tag your LATH hike posts, photos, and updates with #LATH #LATrailHikers #WeHikeLA and/or #GoLATH to show others what it’s like to be out with our group!


We’re happy to announce a new LATH Hike Lead, Robert “Bob” Bittner! Robert has been an active hiker with the LA Trail Hikers for a few years. He has always been quite helpful on our hikes and has is highly knowledgeable with different trails in Los Angeles.  He has a fond appreciation for nature and is looking to share his experience with other hikers. He joins the group as the 12th active hike lead for the group. We look forward to his leadership as he begins his adventures with our group as one of our hike leads. Welcome Robert!

LATH Volunteers
We’re actively looking for more great people to be part of LATH Hike Lead team. So, if you’re interested in having us consider, make sure you submit your interest form to let us know that you want to be part of our awesome group of hike leads. Or, if you’re interested in helping us out on the social front, we’ll also be looking for new members to join the LATH Digital Team. We’ll be doing a call out for that too! We need some great LATH volunteers to keep us going strong!

HIKE CANCELLATION NOTE: Should any hike need to be canceled (due to heavy rain or other reasons), we’ll try to post on our website’s hike’s detail page and on our Facebook page, about 1 .5 hours prior to the meeting point, so you are aware. Otherwise, the hike is considered a go.

– Weekend hikes are primarily in the morning unless otherwise indicated.
– All hikes are subject to change, cancellation or other modifications. We may even add in additional hikes that may not appear on the original listing.
– We try to schedule 2 months worth of hikes so we always have a fresh new set every so often.
– All hikes listed are pre-scouted by our Hike Leads prior to taking the group.
– We require that you bring water to any of our hikes.

1. Read the details page for the hike you’re interested in.
2. Make sure that the Hike Level accommodates your hiking experience (1 easiest, 10 most strenuous).
3. If, and only if it suits you, then show up the day of the hike with all necessary gear, nutrition, and water (we mention everything you need on each details page per hike).
4. (Optional): RSVP via Facebook so we know you’re going. It also let’s us know what about how many hikers will be attending.

We take your safety quite seriously, and would not like for you to attend a hike you’re not ready for.  You know your body and hiking experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiker, please read our hike details page as the hike may not suit your experience level. We have a better experience if every hike has hikers of the intended level.

DISCLAIMER: LA Trail Hikers and its Leads/Organizers/Volunteers/Participants do not take responsibility for any harm, bodily injury, accidents, or damage to personal property. By clicking “Attending,” or attending the hike, you confirming that you understand that all outdoor activity such as hiking, backpacking, and trekking have an associated danger, and will not hold any hike lead/organizer, participant, LA Trail Hikers, or any group associated pet responsible for any hazard to your well being. Additionally, you will not be allowed to participate with the group if you are not adequately prepared with enough water and the right gear/equipment/nutrition essential to complete the hike. You are fully responsible for yourself.

Hike Location Change – Wed April 26

Hello hikers, sorry for the last minute change, but we will need to change the location of tonight’s hike to the Merry Go Round side of Griffith Park due to an event happening at the Greek Theatre (Vermont side) tonight. We will be meeting at our other usual meeting point at the Merry Go Round Lot #1 area. Keep in mind there might be other groups meeting there today as well due to this, so make sure you ask for the “LA Trail Hikers” to find the right team.
