Tree People
"TreePeople is an environmental nonprofit that unites the power of trees, people and nature-based solutions to grow a sustainable future for Los Angeles. Simply put, our work is about helping nature heal our cities."

"TreePeople’s mission is to inspire, engage and support people to take personal responsibility for the urban environment, making it safe, healthy, fun and sustainable and to share the process as a model for the world."

"...Early efforts in the 1970s focused on educating and inspiring people to plant and care for trees. Why? Because more trees means cooler temperatures, cleaner air, replenished groundwater supplies and a safer, more beautiful city."

Moonlight Hike
Moonlight Hikes

"Hike our park under the moonlight!
Everything changes after dark – the trails, the trees, the entire park. Experience Coldwater Canyon in a whole new light with hikes led by TreePeople staff and volunteers."

"Take in inspiring views of the San Fernando Valley, as the moon rises over coast live oaks and black walnut trees. Listen for owls. Absorb the peace, tranquility and beauty of the canyon trails after sunset."

View from the Hike
This is truly a fun and exciting event. It costs $5 to go with the TreePeople up on the hike which lasts approximately an hour. No hiking experience is necessary, water and a flashlight are not required, but highly recommended. All walks of life were there for the hike, young, old, slow, and fast. Reservations are needed for the hike, and you can contact them at or visit the moonlight hike section of their website for more information. Keep in mind travel time, it does take a bit to get to this location so keep that in mind when you go...

TIP: Bring some clothes to change in the car, you are only miles away from Beverly Hills & some great eateries.

I had been reading a lot about this restaurant in a lot of blogs, raving about their ice cream macaroon sandwiches. I had to try one. MILK has a variety of sandwiches, ice cream flavors, and bakery sweets. I tried the Media Noche Sandwich, Lemonade (to die for), & a Red Velvet Ice Cream Sandwich. 

Red Velvet Ice Cream Sandwich 
My only complaint about this place is the fact that you have to eat dessert before your meal. The lines are normally too long to make line for your food then for your dessert. BUT I didn't ask if you could pay for your meal and dessert and pick it up after...

Overall, this place is amazing, the lines are definitely worth the wait...ill definitely be checking this place out to explore their other treats!


Daytime parking is available from 10 am to 6 pm on Poinsettia Pl., in the parking lot located behind Kearn's Market.

Nighttime parking is available from 6pm to close in the lot located at 7369 Beverly Blvd.


To walk off the food, walking up and down Beverly Blvd is quiet a visual delicacy on it's own. The street is filled with a variety of unusual furniture shops. 

This impromptu night out was fun! Saw some amazing views and ate some amazing food. I love exploring LA, the little things one would miss if we didn't take the time to find them.
