A 3.1 mile loop with a stop at the Cahuenga Wisdom Tree.
The moderate rating for the loop trail is deceiving. After leaving the Wisdom Tree and taking the left turn before Cahuenga Peak, the trail descends steeply along the narrow ridge lines. Very narrow and rocky. You have to pick your way carefully to avoid slipping on loose rocks and gravel. Highly recommend trekking poles or a walking stick to steady your way down this loop. Great 360 degree views from Wisdom Tree and then the Valley on the loop.
One of a kind
Awesome! Takes about 15-20 min to hike to wisdoms tree at a steady pace without stopping . Feels good, great views.
Beautiful view all the way to the Top
Awesome... great views!
wisdom tree hike! one of my favorite. there's also a way to go down the long way, which makes this a fun and interesting trail. you end up behind the Hollywood sign, if you take the long way down.
Great nature hike for being in the middle of the city. Great views
Be prepared to go up hill. The path is not flat and contains many rocks and shrubbery. Very worth the effort and is more of a moderate hike.
Great workout. The view from "Wisdom Tree" is awesome. Didn't loop. Came down the way I went up.
