Nothing beats making it to the top and running across the mountains. Lots of fun!

Awesome views but the hike is much more difficult than this app says. It is a difficult hike because of the elevation and length. But the views are worth it.

Great trail for people that want to get elevation in their hikes. I intended to hike this trail clockwise, however at the summit, I chose to descend the ridge to the West. Bad Idea. Steep and sandy, don't do it.

Not bad of a hike, the new name of this trail is the "Brand Motorway". But like others have said, it is mostly uphill. I would put it for someone who is looking for more of a challenge than a bunny slope. This trail also connects to the Verdugo Motorway as well.

It was a very strenuous straight up hike. I will admit I'm out of shape for hiking but this one was a straight up hike. It was the hike from hell today !

great views of the whole city. pretty steep going up but it's all downhill on the way down. there's not a lot of people either so you can truly enjoy the peace of the views and nature. i saw lots of pretty butterflies fluttering about last time :)

Lovely payoff, but tough for beginners and the decline is rough for people with knee issues.
Still, the view is spectacular, and my 12 lb chiweenie conquered the trail with no issues!

This is a great hike to get your in shape! It's very steep, and the ground is a bit unleveled so it provides a good challenge. The view from the top is amazing, you're higher than the Hollywood sign in griffith and you can see all the way to Santa Monica on a clear day. It's a bit scary to trail run on, but it's do-able

Workout wise you get a great workout however the climb up is very dry and with absolutely no shaded areas. Not a lot of green to see during this hike. The view from the top is nice - especially on a clear day.
