Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook
Culver City never ceases to amaze me. Early yesterday morning I attempted to check out what I thought was a mirage. But this was no mirage. I had discovered a 200 plus step climb at 511 ft. I ran up this hill. Huffing and puffing all the way up until I almost passed out at the top. It would have been wise to bring water with me. Maybe next time. The reward for your climb is this amazing panoramic view of Los Angeles to Santa Monica. I took a moment to take it all in. With little energy, I selected a trail which led me to a structure virtually hidden from the street below. The Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook. Built about 1 year ago. Who knew this place existed? I went online today and realized many did.
