You are right down the street from Griffith Park -- in fact you may be able to walk right into the park: Griffith Park LA is good for hiking but is not a walking city like Chicago.

The Santa Monica Mountains have many beautiful trails. Also, Thousand Oaks has trails peppered throughout the city - they actually have a law requiring that a certain amount of land be left "wild".

A great way to find some really beautiful places that you'd otherwise never know existed is to start Geocaching. (You'll need a hand-held GPS device).
