There’s a great short hike in the Pacific Palisades in Santa Ynez Canyon where the trails are covered by wonderful shade trees.

Probably the most awesome panoramic views from a Los Angeles trail

Nicholas Flat is located high atop the Pacific Ocean and Leo Carrillo State Beach, in the Santa Monica Mountains north of Pt Dume and Zuma Beach. You can spend a good 2-2.5 hours on a few miles of family friendly, mostly flat trails. This area has a nice remote feel to it. Click here to see more photos, trail info and map
