If you are constantly on the lookout for hidden gems in Los Angeles, then I guess a hike at Murphy Ranch should entice you.
Murphy Ranch is one of the most mesmerizing and unique hikes in Los Angeles due to its indifferent history. The legend has it that a colony of 40 Nazi supporters lived here from 1933 to 1945. However, after Germany lost the war, the place was left stranded until a group of artists bought it. Though after a few years, in 1973, Los Angeles city bought the area eventually.
The site went from Nazi supporters to a group of talented artists and then finally to the city of Los Angeles, but not before those talented artists created a masterclass of artwork on the walls of this unusual place.
At Murphy ranch, you will be served with a scintillating piece of artwork all around. Not only that, but the thing that intrigued me the most was the unusual vibes that the place carried. The mixture of amazing artwork and a wierd history of the past creating for one of a kind experience at Murphy Ranch
So, if you want to witness the magnificence of hidden gems, then I suggest you get to the intersection of Casale Rad and Sullivan Fire Road, where this magnificent hike starts.
