Awesome hike. It's actually pretty difficult as it's all uphill. I'd say the first 20% of the hike is hard as the incline's the steepest but if you battle through it it's pretty awesome and it evens out a little. The views behind the Hollywood sign are really cool!

Love this hike. Its not too steep and the views are beautiful. There is not a lot of shade so it can get pretty hot.

I found this to be a difficult hike for my being mostly uphill. The views were definitely worth it though. I got to be so close to the Hollywood sign and there weren't a lot of other people there
If you approach up the Beachwood Canyon entrance, there is no parking on the weekend on the streets for about 3/4 mile leading up to the trailhead. Agressively enforced! The trail itself is wide and well traveled, pretty gradual incline. Lots of people coming from other trails in the park. Upper half of the trail is blacktop. Great views of both Hollywood and the Valley and of course the iconic sign.
Make sure to bring sun screen and water. Also be prepared with the type of clothing you wearing and don't forget to wear hiking shoes. Most of the hike is uphill. On the other hand it has amazing views of Griffith Observatory, Downtown LA, and the Hollywood sign. I personally enjoyed the hike.
Well, I got lost and decided to just wonder around and look at the different houses. I hate stairs so I'm glad I got lost and got to explore the neighborhood. It would be better if the stairs were easier to find. I would not consider this an easy outing. I'm out of shape and I met some alethic women that were struggling like I was.
