Sandstone Peak, aka Mt. Allen, is one of my favorite hiking trails in Los Angeles. The view here is spectacular! It is also the highest summit in the Santa Monica Mountains, so you will definitely feel like you’re on top of the world when you’re in this place.
Rising to an elevation of 3,114ft and with full 360 views, you’ll see mountains and hills on one side, and the Pacific Ocean on the other side. The best thing about this trail is you can either do the long version, rounding up to about 6 miles, or do the shorter hike about 2 miles to reach the summit.
If you’ve done the 6mile hike in the past, how was it for you?
