Top Hikes in California

Recently, got into hiking.
Ive hiked Mt. Baldy and Zion in Utah, other places as well.

Anyone know of good hiking spots?
Maybe even a secret hiking spot?

I hit a small spot in Palos Verdes every weekend for a good workout. Take Crenshaw Blvd all the way south till it dead ends. It is absolutely nothing compared to the spots you mentioned though, it's tiny.

Yeah, Im looking for 5+mile hikes
But short ones with nice hikes and views would be nice too

and Thanks Guys for quick responses.

Half Dome in Yosemite was really nice

I'd love to go back to the park

MAKE SURE TO HIKE HALF DOME DURING A LIGHTNING STORM..........ITS MAGICALLY BEAUTIFUL........

Top of the World in Laguna is a beautiful hike with views of south OC. Probably easy for you but it kicked my ass on the super steep parts.

not sure this is the right way to post a pic. Blue?

Mt Tamalpais has some great hikes.

Start at Stinson Beach, head up Dipsea Trail, get on Steep Ravine, up to Pantoll Ranger Station and then down the Matt Davis trail. About 7 miles or so of pure bliss.

Berrycreek Falls Loop in Big Basin is a slice of heaven but it's about 11 miles.

There are sooo many place to hike...this place is your oyster lol.

The 18K of this trail race on a clear day.

The top of Meadows trail in Woods Canyoon has a better view than Top of the World.  

The spot at the end of Boat Trail also has a better view than Top of the World. It is about a mile hike  if you go up Dartmoor.
