The Hastain Trail Connector is a steep trail segment located within the Franklin Canyon Park at the eastern end of the Santa Monica Mountains. There is available parking at trail entrance just off of Lake Dr. The trail is mainly chaparral and is highly exposed with little shade. Complete a loop trail outing by continuing on the Hastain Fire Road Trail that connects to Lake Drive. At higher elevations, trail users have beautiful views of the Los Angeles basin and Beverly Hills.

From Santa Monica Blvd, head north on N. Beverly Drive. Remain on road until you reach Coldwater Park. Then take a left, remaining on N. Beverly Drive. Then take a right on Lake Drive. Remain on Lake Drive for a while. A parking area is on the right further up the hill.
