One of my greatest pleasures living in Los Angeles is getting out to see wildflowers in the spring. This website should help visitors and locals see some of our stunning, natural areas. My favorite wildflower hikes and walks are in the Santa Monica Mountains. Even if you don't get many flower sightings, there are usually good views of the Pacific, and that makes the hike very worthwhile:
Of course, please don't pick any flowers as the seeds are important to the future!
