it's a nice long trek. it isn't really that hard just long.

Solid workout! I was trying to find out if the trail was okay (not too soggy) after the rains and I can report they are in great shape. There are some loose pebbles, stones, rocks as you come down the trail if you start on trail going clockwise at starting point. All and all? Great workout and nice views. Had a tour of at least 40 people to pass. That was an all time first! Haha! All good tho!

We had two hours spare before brunch so quickly shot up here for a hike. You cannot bring your dog unfortunately, however, for a busy hike, everyone was friendly and the views are quite good for such a short city hike.

Great view at the peak!

Gorgeous views of city, mountains and ocean! Enjoyable trail! Areas of the trail have loose small rocks, so sturdy hiking boots and poles recommended.

Neat family friendly path with a connection to the nostalgic Batman show; https://youtu.be/xIxRC8AQeEU
Enjoy!

Trail is heavily utilized and well-maintained. Park Rangers were actually on the trail in a truck during the venture.
The overwhelming odor of horse droppings all along the trail make this trail a "2!"
The iconic sign is worthy of some pics, but since it's a 6 mile journey out and back, best to prepare for the odor.
Wouldn't traverse again.

Uphill and downhill terrain. Quiet on weekdays and beautiful views.

Great hike with wonderful views of DTLA.
Hollywood sign right there to take it all in.
First couple of miles will have you huffing and puffing as it’s a pretty steep incline.
After that you’ll be treated to the views on your way to the sign.
Enjoy!

The views were absolutely gorgeous! You can see all of LA! Breathtaking truly! Don’t miss out. It’s mostly uphill so it’s def a great workout. I ran pretty much the entire thing. Make sure you’re wearing gripped shoes cause on the way down there are a lot of rocks you can slip on!! Just be careful and enjoy!!!

Nothing much to see and many people. Still a nice easy hike!

My favorite trail in the DTLA area. Completely empty during the hotter months and at midday, busy during the afternoons and evenings. 4-5 miles of trail if you hit everything or do the main loop twice.

Nice moderate loop trail for early morning or late afternoon. Otherwise it would be very hot (not a lot of shade during the first, uphill, part of the hike if you go clockwise). Beautiful views on the way up. Lovely cool forest on the way down. Busy but not jammed on a Saturday afternoon. Parking is $10 (pay at the machine in the parking lot).

Love this trail for kids, out of towners

I recommend doing it counter clockwise. East side of the trail inclines slower and has a lot of shade in the morning, but also a lot of rocks. West side is nice smooth dirt trail but more exposed to the sun. So it makes sense to go up slower in the shady but rocky trial and coming down quicker on the smooth but expose part. Overall a beautiful trail with some shade.

Great for the family. Nice picnic areas, and the actual trail is fairly easy with nice views. On the way to the trail, you can see the horses.

Make sure you grab the pamphlet on the way in.

Short but quaint hike. Near a lot of homes.

So close to Santa Monica and lovely hike.

great trail views are worth the medium effort

Super easy hike. I usually jog there from my apt since I live nearby. The caves are really to look at. Plus, it is the original BATCAVE

Balade sympa qui parvient jusqu'au pied de la mythique inscription. Par une journée de grosse chaleur, nous avons un peu souffert pour monter (bon, on a commencé à marcher à 10h du matin, notre avion s'était posé la veille à 23h... ça peut expliquer un peu de fatigue). Les rangers avaient mis à disposition des fûts d'eau fraîche à mi-parcours. Le trail lui même n'est pas forcément très intéressant mais offre des vues sympa sur LA.

kicks my butt every time but it's a quick steep workout

A quick getaway hike that is easy to get to. Counterclockwise for the view at the end. Clockwise for a bit more cardio.

I love the hike ,because it was hike friendly.

beautiful, but crowded.

I hiked this trail on my way to Will Rogers from the San Fernando Valley. It's a nice little hike with some spectacular views.
