The Paseo Miramar Trail is a moderately difficult hike in Pacific Palisades, with stunning, nearly 360 views of Santa Monica and the Pacific Ocean. On a clear day, you can even see Catalina Island! The hike is about 5 miles roundtrip and mostly uphill but the view is well worth it. There's minimal shade so be sure to bring an ample supply of sunscreen and water!
