Whether you’re a lifelong Angeleno or a visitor from out of town looking to blaze new trails on a Onewheel, there are a few “must-ride” spots in LA you have to check out. We’ve compiled a list of some Los Angeles skaterhead hotspots that are perfect for your Onewheel Pint or Onewheel XR.
A ride on a Onewheel is thrilling on any LA beach, but there’s a prime coastal riding spot that locals and tourists can’t get enough of: Redondo Beach. This coastal city in LA County is just 20 minutes from Los Angeles International Airport, and is home to one of the most iconic piers in the area. Always bustling with nightlife, festivals and local skateboard enthusiasts, Redondo Beach Pier is the perfect spot to pack it in after a day on the beach.
If you’re not in a hurry to get to Redondo Beach, consider making pit stops at Manhattan and Hermosa Beach (both of which you’ll drive by on your way to Redondo Beach).
If you’ve never ridden a Onewheel on a beach, be advised that sand is one of the more difficult terrains to ride on. Sand can sink or crater unexpectedly, causing your Onewheel to become stuck. Find an area of the beach that appears smooth and firm, but be careful not to get too close to the water’s edge. A drifting tide can quickly engulf you and your Onewheel, which can lead to irreversible damage.
Disclaimer: Onewheels are known for their durability and off-road capabilities, but you shouldn’t submerge them in water. Visit our Onewheel Rental page to read more about proper usage, safety and damage protection limitations.
Don’t let the warnings keep you from embracing the beauty of Redondo Beach! Just practice caution, be aware of your surroundings, and get ready for one of the world’s most beautiful rides.
Angeles Crest Scenic Byway
A truly breathtaking stretch of road that spans the San Gabriel mountain range through the Angeles National Forest, the Angeles Crest Scenic Byway is a nature-lover’s dream destination. The highway itself is narrow, lacks shoulders and is generally unsafe for riding, but with numerous “off-the-beaten-path” trailheads in the area, you and your Onewheel will carve out an adventure that’s one of a kind. Come fully charged, because there are miles of wilderness for you and your Onewheel to explore.
Be sure to bring your hiking boots and a pack to haul your Onewheel! You’ll want to make the easy hike up to San Gabriel Peak, which boasts panoramic views of Glendale, Pasadena, and beyond.
Los Angeles River Trail
Looking for a little nature without leaving the heart of the city? Ride your Onewheel over to the Los Angeles River Trail. Also known as the Los Angeles River Bike Path, this riverside trail cuts through nearly 24 miles of urban Los Angeles, making it the perfect mix of bustling city backdrop and a natural beauty. Each route along the Los Angeles River Trail offers new views, terrain, and opportunities to explore on your Onewheel. Loosen up at Sunnynook River Park for a burst of greenery and a breath of fresh air.
On the southern end of the trail, near the small city of Vernon, you’ll be treated to a variety of industrial landscapes and more challenging terrain to navigate.
