Getty View Trail Professional Review and Guide

"If you’ve spent any time in LA, chances are you’ve been stuck in traffic on the 405 going over the Sepulveda Pass. Adjacent to this mass exodus of road rage–infused commuters lie a few miles of underappreciated, underrated, and often overlooked singletrack. The lack of traffic here may owe to the facts that Getty View Trail was only recently constructed and Casiano Fire Road isn’t connected by dirt to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. This sliver of mountain bike terrain is totally surrounded by urban development. Nevertheless, it offers the most centrally located fat-tire action in all of LA."

"This conveniently located trail climbs a steep slope up to a
ridge overlooking the lush Hoag Canyon. From the top of
the ridge you can turn left or right for views of the famous
Getty Museum, the Pacific Ocean, and the canyon."

"The Getty View Trail in Bel Air ascends the steep hillside from Sepulveda Pass to Casiano Fire Road, an unpaved road on the ridgeline. A three-quarter mile climb through chaparral and pockets of live oak and toyon provides access to a section of the 376-acre Sepulveda Pass Open Space. The ridge-top trail overlooks Hoag Canyon, with sweeping vistas of the Getty Center Museum, West Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and the Pacific Ocean."

The Getty View trail is one of my favorite trails in LA. Sandwiched between UCLA, the 405 and Bel-Air, it's extremely close to the city, yet boast magnificent views over the 405, the Getty Museum, Westwood and on clear days even all the way up to Downtown LA. The original climb might be steep, but well worth the terrific views. Like the Getty Museum "next door", I ended up going here several times already. :)
