dogs on leash
Easy to moderate hike with great views and quiet trails. You'll run into other hikers, sure, but without the crowds that occupy the busier sites. Definitely bring water and wear sunscreen
This is a nice moderate hike, with a fair amount of shade compared to other trails in the area. I hiked at 8am on a Saturday and there was light to moderate foot traffic toward the bottom, and almost zero traffic towards the top. There were several mountain bikers, and a few trail runners.
Ran this trail from the parking area up to about 1/3 of a mile from the radio tower. I estimate it was about a 3 3/4 round trip. Very scenic and pretty. Also very hot with little to no shade. There is water only at the trail head. Arrive hydrated. We saw a coyote along the trail so I advise dog owners to keep their dogs on a leash. If you are a distance runner this is some nice hill training. Or if you're simply a hiker, great exercise and views
Very nice trail.. A little steep in the first half.. Very nice view you can see 134 fwy on the other side and the other side will be the city view.. Parking is ok there is a restroom as well.. Plenty of rest points.. Bring a lot of water.. We only hike up to radio tower but still there are more trail that you can walk to..
It was good hike. About 6 mi round trip. I started at the nature center and walked all the way up to the radio tower. I went in the afternoon which was a bit of mistake, there is hardly and shade on the hike. It's all uphill to the radio tower. Beautiful views. You can see all of Burbank and Hollywood and part of DTLA. I recommend bringing lots of water.
Pretty moderate but several ways you can go. Some steeper than others. Pretty brown and not much views unless the rain recently hit in which you are treated with lots of spring flowers and a clear view all the way to DT and beyond.
Great views and nice workout
This is a great trail for younger kids and grown-ups. It has great views at the top and you can also hike up to an old Boy Scout camp. Great for kids and you can hike down the backside so you get some different views.
super easy and short hike. benches at the top. view of the valley. clean trail.
