What is the LA Field Guide?
Learn about it here
The LA Field Guide is a logbook of what gets me outdoors in this city. Stories, musings, and places off the beaten path that make Los Angeles feel a little more wild.
When I moved to Los Angeles in 2011, I quickly realized I wouldn’t last a month if I didn’t figure out how to get outside.
But how to get outside in a city famous for cars, concrete, and freeways? I started heading for the hills and was surprised to find there are tons of outdoor adventures around LA if you’re willing to go looking for them.
I hope you find something you can add to your own logbook in whatever concrete sprawl you call home.

Hey, I’m Aaron. I am a writer and documentary filmmaker whose life goal is to spend more time in the mountains than in meetings.
Los Angeles is huge, more like a collection of a dozen cities than a single locale. I tend to explore on the East side and up into the Angeles Crest, but I’m also known to change things up and do unexpected things.
This year, I’m using the 2023 LAFG Bucket List as a roadmap.
