Touch and Go
Ah, the winding and scrubbrush’d hiking trails above Los Angeles. Where a man can breathe deep of the Pacific air, his only concern the occasional cougar that’s strayed from her natural habitat, Hollywood Hills.
Simply download the app, then revel in the wealth of info — each trail’s mapped out, including distance, time on trail, and elevation — categorized by effort required, e.g., “an easy nature walk along the site of an old ranch” or “an off-trail scramble to a prominent northern peak.”
And thanks to the app’s geolocator, you’ll also get customized directions to the trailhead.
Once you pick a trail, scroll down to learn more about trail conditions and pitfalls to avoid, like abandoned fire roads.
And those cougars.
