Lake View Terrace:
A Hidden Rural Gem in the Foothills of the Mountains

On the edge of an urban metropolis where one can still smell horses or admire hawks soaring across the cloudless blue sky, or even hear the eerie howl of a lone coyote baying at a full moon, there lies a beautiful little community of rolling hills and wooded trails, a community kissed by the gentle breezes of fresh mountain air.

This is Lake View Terrace, one of the last remaining slices of rural farmland and equestrian community remaining in Los Angeles. Rising into the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and partially engulfed by the Angeles National Forest, Lake View Terrace is a home to horses and their riders, to hikers and bikers, to outdoor explorers and adventurers seeking the thrill of a true wilderness retreat, to those who want to truly escape the city, without leaving it at all.

Things to Do

Though a mostly rural and residential community, Lake View Terrace is home to plenty of its own attractions and points of interest, like the Lake View Terrace Branch Library or the Discover Cube children’s science center, the first major museum in the San Fernando Valley. It’s also home to the Lake View Terrace Recreation Center, where community events and sports can be found, and the expansive Hansen Dam.

Hansen Dam offers amazing amenities like the Hansen Dam Equestrian Center, Hansen Dam Park & Recreation Area, Hansen Dam Golf Course, and the Hansen Dam Swim Lake & Aquatic Center, which features a fishing lake with boat rentals and public boating, and a swimming lake.

Outdoor Exploration

Escape the noise, the neighbors, the city itself and retreat to wilderness in Lake View Terrace. The serenity of true mountain exploration is just steps away—maybe even out your back door. To the northeast, the homes of Lake View Terrace rise into the rolling foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, providing back-door escapes into the trails of the Angeles National Forest for hikers, horseback riders, and mountain bikers looking for true outdoor exploration.

To the southeast, the Verdugo mountains offer a wealth of hiking, biking, and exploration in parks like La Tuna Canyon. It’s not even uncommon to see hang gliders soaring over Kagel Canyon.
