Great views and workout at Los Liones Trail

It’s a wonderful time of the year to hit the trail up to the panoramic views at Los Liones  trail in the Pacific Palisades.  The views are great, especially up at the Parker Mesa Overlook, and the workout up the trail is just as heart pumping as it’s ever been!
