Everyone wants to snap the perfect shot of this California landmark. Although it’s visible from all over Los Angeles, a close-up shot can be hard to come by, making this one adventurous hike perfect for an outdoor outing or a casual get together with friends. There are two trails up, so if you want your group can split up and swap experiences on the way down. As you take a water break, check out the cactus and agave plants, and don’t be alarmed by the friendly little canyon lizards scurrying about. Once at the top, behold the world-famous symbol and take in the moment as a group. On a clear day, you and your friends will be treated to a soul-stirring view of the LA landscape. Take out your camera phones and snap away, becoming the envy of your social media friends.
