A bit intense for little ones, if they're not used to incline. But amazing trail to hike. We didn't make it to the Hollywood sign this time, but will definitely try again soon!
awesome time with awesome people
Breathtaking view of the city!
I highly suggest you visit Branson Canyon first. (Easy) but you'll love it. It is also known as ( Batman Caves)
If you're looking for a long hike then take Hollyridge Trail. Once you're on the top it'll give you different Trail directions.

I came up Beachwood and parked where the street ends. Google Maps insisted this was the correct direction. Parking can be difficult so check the street signs for permit only.
Proceed going up the hill past the iron rod gate, where the security guard is posted. Once you pass the actual Hollywood Sign where you can take great pictures, you'll see a sign that gives you directions on where more to go. Take the trail to the left that will take you behind the Hollywood sign and that's considered the Hollyridge trail.
Despite what people say this is a moderate Trail, it's not easy. It's total incline practically the entire way up, so be prepared wear great shoes. The trail is also much longer than what the App says.
Once you get to the top you will see the Hollywood sign or be behind it. Once you reach the Top if you veer to the right you can go to Cahuenga Peak.
Ended up hiking about 6 miles. Great picture ops.
Pretty busy but overall fun
