Jake Borelli shares his 'go-to' LA hiking spots
Actor Jake Borelli from "Grey's Anatomy" talks about his favorite outdoor hiking spots in and around Los Angeles.

LOS ANGELES -- For "Grey's Anatomy" star Jake Borelli, it's the great outdoors of SoCal and LA that has become his go-to.

"I think one of the cool things about LA is it's a big you know, metropolitan area but we're right here in nature surrounded by mountains," Borelli told Localish.

When life doesn't have the actor on the set of the hit ABC drama, Borelli loves to explore the outdoors. He found it especially therapeutic during the pandemic as it was one of the few activities we could still enjoy without too many limitations. One of his favorite places in Los Angeles is Griffith Park.

"I'll hike from the bottom. There's a cute little coffee shop there which is super sweet. And then you you can hike all the way up past the observatory, which is super fun," said the recently turned 30-year-old actor.

If he's not limited by time due to his hectic shooting schedule, Borelli enjoys going a little further, but not too far. Malibu Creek State Park is a quick 40 minute drive (in traffic) from where he lives.

"If I have a day free, I'm gonna go up to Malibu Creek State Park. It's one of my favorite places ever. And it's huge and there's all different types of terrain that you can go on," he told us.
