About the Location:
If you are looking for a nice loop hike in the Santa Monica Mountains above Beverly Hills, give Hastain Trail in Franklin Canyon Park a try. Hastain Trail can actually be used for two loops, one easy 1.8-mile loop with 350 feet of elevation gain and one moderate 2.2-mile option with 550 feet of elevation gain. Each trek is a satisfying way to explore Franklin Canyon Park. Franklin Canyon Park preserves 605 acres in the Santa Monica Mountains including a former ranch acquired by the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy in 1981. Dogs are allowed on leashes in Franklin Canyon Park.

This one's gonna be a little tricky - there really aren't any signs helping you out on the way to this park and cell service is very spotty. From Sunset Blvd. in Beverly Hills, head north on Beverly Drive. In 0.4 miles, take your third left to stay on Beverly Drive (even though street signs for Coldwater Canyon Blvd. are much more prominent). In 0.3 miles, you'll reach an intersection at Coldwater Canyon Park on your left and a fire station on your right. Take a left at this light to stay on Beverly Drive. For the next 0.9 miles, Beverly Drive narrows into a residential street. After that 0.9 miles, you'll come to a stop sign at another intersection. Take a right here onto Franklin Canyon Drive (look for the sign that says Road Closed in 1600 feet). Stay on Franklin Canyon Drive as it enters the park. After 1.1 miles, take a right onto Lake Drive (look for a park info sign and an old building on your right). Drive 0.7 miles south on Lake Drive and look for a parking area on the left hand side of the street.
