SafetyWell… I really can’t tell you that it is safe.
LA, unfortunately, have a large concentration of homeless. Although I find most of them to be harmless, I felt uncomfortable travelling alone. LA is also known to have a relatively high rate of gang violence and crime, so always be alert and don't venture into sketchy neighborhood with too many graffiti.
Watch out for forest fire and rattlesnakes on hiking trail.
