This is the stairway on N. Beachwood Dr that's a shortcut to Hollyridge Dr. This is a great easy to moderate hike if you are visiting or new in town with great views of the Hollywood sign. At the top is a great 360 degree view behind the famous 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.

I wish I could give this hike a real review but the directions if gives you to get there are wrong. Drive almost and hour and a half from home to go to this hike to get to the very top and the gates are chained up and it says no hiking access. Drive through this small neighborhood thinking we were getting closer to have to turn around and not be able to enter. Stop at a small grocery store near by to get directions and were told to go a different way and the same thing happen. Chained up gates and no access to the trails . Wasted a Saturday morning driving around and getting no where. Disappointing. If you want to give this a try don't follow the directions this app gives...

This trail is not as "easy" as they claim. Be prepared and bring water and sunscreen. Also, make sure after the first big hill to keep left. I went right and wound up almost at Griffith! Took almost 4 hours, but I was determined to get to the top! The view was worth it, but I won't be doing it again soon.

Great scenery. Crowded on a Sunday. Watch out for the horse poop.

Iconic! I'm born and raised in Southern California and just did this hike on 1.1.16. I waited way too long to make it up here! I would recommend it to anyone and everyone that can make it up the hill. We were lucky on our hike to have such gorgeous weather. We could literally see from OC to Long Beach to Catalina to Santa Monica on the south side and Bubank on the north side of the peak. It's a long uphill but worth it!

This is a really easy hike - great for the whole family and to take out of towners to or to get outdoors for a fresh breath of air.

As a fit person that works out about 4-5 days a week, I wouldn't recommend this hike if you're looking for a workout.

The hike itself is not too bad, suitable for all ages with a generous view over the city of Hollywood/Los Angeles area.
