A pleasant but crowded urban walk. A good option if you want to get your miles in but don't have time to hit the Santa Monica or San Gabriel mountains.

so beautiful....
fun for the kids.

Great paths leading to amazing views of the coast and city. Parking varies, $12 flat fee on weekends and holidays, some street parking as well.

It's steep and awesome! I go 3 times a week and it's a great workout with a nice view of the valley.

Easy, great views. Couldn't figure out how to do the loop and ended up coming down the same way I went up. Very nice day hiking.

Great scenic trail. Easy to moderate with not much steep incline or decline on the route I took. Still enough to get a day's exercise in, especially if you run the trails. Seemed every corner turned is an epic view. From city skylines to coastline and everything in between. I'll definitely be back again soon.

on Lake Balboa Trail

Beautiful views, pretty easy hike. Parking is $12 if you park in the lot.

A great paved loop around Lake Hollywood. Great views all around. There's a "rustic" drinking fountain on the south side of the trail if you forget to bring your own water. Parking is usually decent, but some local residents whip around the corners really fast, so be cautious of the traffic.

The best way to get closer to the Hollywood sign.
Do not forget to apply sunscreen if you are hiking on a hot sunny day.

Un lugar excellent para la familia

good work out as far as running 4 miles from beginning to the dirt loop in the back people can get your way at times besides that great place to log in some miles

I give it a 5! The incline is steep and a great way to work off big holiday meals!
