My Los Angeles Basin Urban thru-hike utilized portions of the Inman 300, the Pacific Crest Trail, and the streets of LA. For approximately 190 and 5 days I scaled mountains and innumerable staircases which held secret gardens within the madness of a metropolis. I followed historic routes of the city and hiked the spine of the basin. From the sea to the mountains, the city to wilderness, below are the details and what-for's of a very enjoyable and rewarding experience.
