For those times when you can’t get out of LA to go for a hike, the city offers several urban trails. Those who live around Layola Marymount University (in Culver City, Ladera Heights, Marina Del Rey, Playa Vista, Westchester, West LA, etc.) may enjoy getting a taste of the outdoors along with some exercise on the LMU Trail, also know as Westchester Fire Road. This partially paved road crosses the bluff below Layola Marymount University (and the white LMU lettering)
LMU Trail crosses the Westchester Bluffs on the north side of the Layola Marymount University Campus. The trail starts near Court Park at the corner of Bluff Creek Drive and Centinela Avenue and goes southwest all the way to Lincoln Boulevard. Since there is no parking at the end of the trail at Lincoln Boulevard, it is best to access the trail from the east side (unless you are within walking or biking distance of the trail’s west end). Start from Court Park in Playa Vista and take the sidewalk path southwest along Bluff Creek Drive. After a tenth of a mile, the walkway hits the start of LMU Trail across from the intersection between Bluff Creek Drive and Artisans Way.
This is a Dog Friendly Hike.
