HikingGreat!

Fairly easy, relatively short hike. You gotta park on the side of the road, I went on a Friday afternoon and had no trouble getting a spot, but I can see it being challenging on weekends. There are a couple branches but I recommend going down to the actual cove and just sitting there to watch the waves. There's no real waterfall to speak of (unless you count 3 feet high as being a waterfall), but I greatly enjoyed this.

Hollywood Sign from Innsdale Dr. Great short way to see the sign! Not too crowded today. Flat but decent inclines. Went Sunday around 1030-11 Easy and plentiful parking. Very kid friendly and great views of the sign, the city, downtown and the lake. No shade, wasn't expecting so much sun today.

HikingGreat!

The Valley View trail offered sweet serenity, greenery, and a peak into the nature that envelops Big Sur. It is featured in the second half of our youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BeOuKWIVc4Q The trail captivates all of your senses with soothing river sounds and offers serene outlooks of the surrounding mountains and an epic overlook of the Big Sur River Valley . It's short and sweet and perfect for most hiker levels!

Very flat, quick and easy. Nice little view of the lake and the Hollywood sign. Easy to continue on to other trails in Griffith Park that are the same level. Parking was really easy and available on a Friday at sunset

Gets you super close to the sign without having to do that 9 mile hike! Surprised with the amount of street parking available. I’ll definitely be bringing my tourist friends here.

Loved this trail. Not crowded, not steep, just a nice easy sunset hike for my kid and dog to burn off some energy. Perfect for LA winter

It wasn't closed when we were there last week. Pfeiffer Falls was closed but not this one. Its a short-ish uphill hike to get to a moderately good view, no ocean/beach. Buzzards Roost nearby is longer and harder but slightly better view with ocean.

Hardy any people before 10am. Most people were wearing masks. Easy to physically distance from others.

> Moderately trafficked (less than expected) on a Saturday 1:30p > Easy, steady uphill > Can connect to other Hollywood sign trails at the end. > The note about private land is deceiving. We made it the whole way without encountering anything such barrier. There was several barriers restricting traffic but nothing for pedestrians nor any restrictive signage. > Nice views (Downtown, Ocean/Santa Monica, Hollywood Sign)

Easy trail, more like a nice long walk than a hike even though it’s uphill. Good view a of the Hollywood sign and the city!
