Loved this trail and such a nice view of the city
Outstanding views with good elevation-80/100
This parking area is for the merry go round which is also known where Walt Disney use to bring his daughters and came up with the idea of Disneyland. The park bench he used is now at Disneyland. The trail takes you close to the old zoo which closed in the 60s but you can still see parts of cages and paths. You also past mt. Glendale mt Hollywood and get a pretty good view of cities on either side. Some parts of the trail are narrow. Come on the weekends expect to cross paths with quite a few people. But it's a hike that shows you quite a bit of the park.
Its awesome! The only downside to this park is the parking. You have to park on the street and walk up to it. But if your hiking its all part of the experience. A must do in the Hollywood area.
