Although TV host Huell Howser is a local to Los Angeles, the man loves all of California. Yesterday he disclosed to the California State Parks Foundation that his favorite state park hike is through Fern Canyon in Prairie Creek Redwood State Park, which compliments the nearby Redwood National Park in Northern California:

But all hope is not lost for Howser and Southern California. His favorite local hike happens to be in Griffith Park. "My friend Tom LaBonge, who is a City Councilman, hikes up to the top of Mount Hollywood every single day and when I hike up there with him I'm always amazed at what a beautiful hike it is right in the middle of Los Angeles," he said last month at a National Parks film screening. "Literally, thousands of people do this every morning and every night and enjoy the park."
