Hiking Kenneth Hahn to surprising views and a glistening garden gem

This is a surprisingly lush walk in the unlikeliest of places -- off La Cienega Boulevard, surrounded by barren hills dotted with rusted oil pumping equipment. But within the 308-acre Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area are broad lawns, groves of eucalyptus, sumac and oak, several lakes, a rushing stream and a Japanese garden. And perhaps the best city views in Los Angeles.
