Mount Hollywood Trail is a 5.3 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Los Angeles, CA that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail.
Excellent views and dogs are allowed, but failing to pick up after them will land you a $250 fine.
Really liked this hike. First part of the hike was all consistent gradation so it's pretty tough the middle of the hike levels out when you get a bit of a rest and then if you want to go behind the Hollywood sign it's about another mile of continuous gradation. Really great views of LA
great walk for beginner and experienced hikers. You can make it as difficult as you want it to be.
Great scenic views of downtown and the Hollywood sign. Wide, easy trails, but heavy traffic and a ton of dog poop everywhere!
Did the back route from the carousel up to the very top. Many shortcuts available, but this makes for a much steeper hike. Great work out and beautiful 360 views from the enclosed benched area that overlooks the Greek Theater and Observatory. I prefer this site to rest rather than the Hollywood sign hill. Take a picnic for the top. You can see every surrounding neighborhood from here.
Super hard but worth it
Good hike but tough in parts. Beautiful views though. The Batman cave was more like a tunnel but oh well.
I was not happy with the app or where it led me. It failed me 3 separate times and caused me to not accomplish my goal of reaching the Hollywood sign after driving all the way from the San Diego area!
Classic LA hike.
Great hike! Beautiful scenery. Will definitely do it more often.
2 trails to choose from: Upper trail takes you to the back of the Hollywood Sign (close enough) and lower trail (2nd trail to your left) takes you to the front of the sign but far (do not expect you can touch the sign). If you love to walk and run, this is a good place. We took both trails and started with the upper climb and went back down the other trail towards the front of the sign. It was an amazing 10 miles or so... FREE PARKING (get there early), bring a lot of water, horses' poop and pee everywhere.
Super easy but it's a classic!
