Take a Break from the City: LA Day Trip Ideas for Getting Back to Nature

For Earth Day, we’re kicking off a list of favorite locations throughout California for when you want to hike, explore, and enjoy the great outdoors. This list is for when you find yourself in LA, but crave the peace and calm of nature. These are all tried and true spots to enjoy the best of what our beautiful planet and the Greater Los Angeles Area has to offer.

Enjoy a can of Malus along the way or after you’ve completed the hike! Please recycle, and prioritize keeping these trails as beautiful as you found them.

Feel like we’ve missed one? Message us on Instagram @drinkmalus or send an email to info@harmonycraftbeverages.com, and we’ll continue adding to this list! (More regional suggestions coming soon)
