Southern California is a great place for outdoor recreation. This is a place that is famous for someone being able to surf in the morning and snow ski in the afternoon of the same day. We have mountains and deserts which are great for hiking, bicycling, and motorcycling. We have a coast that range from rocky cliffs to wide sandy beaches. Some of the natural areas have also been protected in the form of National Parks, National Monuments, National Recreation Areas, State Parks, and even County Parks. These pages will help to show what Southern California has to offer for the outdoor enthusiast. They will also show how you can improve your commute by taking advantage of our weather instead of driving, when possible.
