Sandstone Peak, Santa Monica Mountains
One of the best hikes in Southern California! By adding the loop on the west end called the "TriPeaks Area" we increased this to 8+ miles, but it's well worth it for the amazing view (and additional bit of solitude.) Want more, do the side trip to the amazing balancing rock. By doing the loop counterclockwise, you save the big peak (Called Sandstone Peak even though it's not Sandstone) for the end. Then you have a mere 1-1/2 miles of 1,400 feet drop to the car as you pass all the short-hikers huffing and puffing their way to Sandstone Peak.
