THE BOOTY BUSTER IN BALDWIN HILLS
If you’re looking to tighten up the tush for summer, Culver City is calling your name! These stairs are a beast!! No joke!! You’ll hit about 300 steps on the way up, but no step is the same. They are all different levels and can be a bit slippery with the sand/dirt under your shoes if you’re not paying attention on your way up or down. There are a few levels where you can stop for a breather (which I always need) and a trail that zig-zags up the side of the hill if your thighs need a break. The hike is worth it once you get to the top though as the views stretch from downtown LA to Hollywood to the beach along Santa Monica. You’ll also find a nice breeze, water fountain and restrooms if you make it to the top. The Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook sits at 511 ft. at the top with an exhibit explaining the history of the once drilled land and it’s restoration. But back to the booty…you’ll definitely feel the burn the next couple days. I usually try to make it up and down about three times, using both the trail and the stairs to mix it up, which can take between 45 minutes to an hour. Comment below and let me know what you think of the Culver City stairs. Or, if you have any other booty busting locations in LA you think I should try! Happy Hiking!
