very nice hike ...be prepared on hot days take lots of water and proper shoes

Less of a trail and more of a wide dirt road. No shade, so bring a hat and plenty of water. Views of the city are stunning, but there isn't much else by way of pretty nature photo ops. Loved being able to go to the front and around behind the Hollywood sign, but doing both does add extra mileage, so be prepared. Iconic views from the sign itself. So glad I did this at least once. (And it only took 20 years of living here!)

very good hike. stars easy but if doing the whole loop it will be challenging...cool pictures spots n ocean view

Great hike this weekend. Right before the storm. After Echo MT. We decided to continue on up to Inspiration Point. What a great decision. Amazing view. But was freezing cold up there. Will definitely do both hikes again.

nice walk in the park there are two ways to get up there a steep dirt way and a paved road very kid friendly

if you go early you can see all the turtles

The previous post said it all

rained heavily the day before. definitely got out feet wet. not a chance of keeping them dry. left the trail several times to explore the west side of the river. again if you want the easiest route, stay on the east side of the river. hints: as you advance down the trail you will come to rock formations which seem to end the trail. if you climb these rock formations you will find the trail on the other side. we made several deviations off the trail because we simply didn't look far enough when the trail seemed to end. on the return trip back to the camp grounds we're stayed on the trail and only had to cross the river/ stream three or four times. as I said it rained heavily the day before and we were forced to Ford the river in areas where it normally would not be as deep. a great day, look forward to taking some adventurous friend back out to the bridge.

Beautiful after a rainy day! Will definitely come back.

it was a good hike but what upset me at the end the mine was gated off was looking forward to look in

Your body delivers a protein called Antiaging Serum Plus collagen that is principally made out of amino acids called peptides. As you age, creation levels drop, causing slight, wrinkled skin. At the point when utilized as a part of a serum, peptides animate repair and development. Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3 (trademark name: Matrixyl 3000) invigorates profound layers of skin.

This hike is lovely. There are two trails, basically shaded and not, that run parallel to each other so you can still get to the caves no matter which you choose.

Not too much trash until you hit the turnoff towards the cave. It’s clear where to go as long as you know you have to turn right towards the mountain. There’s a sign detailing the rules of the park on the left - go the opposite way.

Yes there’s trash and graffiti, though not as much as described in some of these reviews. There may have been a clean up since they went. Once inside the cave there isn’t too much trash, but the graffiti is all over. There are also pigeons inside, which startled me at first then was really cool to watch them fly back and forth.

It’s kind of a scramble to get to the caves. Just a somewhat steep walk to get to the entrance but if you want to go inside you’ll need to scramble a bit. It was my first time here and I did this alone so I didn’t make the climb to castle peak - I didn’t want to risk a free climb, even as easy as it is, by myself so I just turned back around. The scramble down is spookier than up.

There’s a bit of traffic but parking is easy. Just park in the neighborhood on vanowen and the entrance is right there. I saw two couples, three dirt bikers, and two or three individuals hiking like myself. If you like to hike alone I’d say go around 7:30 am so the early crowd has left but the later morning crowed hasn’t quite arrived.

Over all - it was beautiful and I’d do it again. I recommend going in spring or after rain so it’s green and not California brown.

Saw whales and seals (I think they were seals) therefore 5 stars

Great afternoon hike with breathtaking views. Be prepared to get your feet wet, as you will cross the streams 10+ times by the time you get down to the waterfall and back.

It was beautiful but it was overcast most of the time. Can’t imagine how awesome it must be on a clear day. Started at 10am and only 2 cars were in the parking lot. Didn’t see anyone until inspiration point. Great day

I love this hike!! Bring at least two liters of water and a snack. This hike was 6.9 miles for me because I also went to Bronson cave and I recorded from the time I exited my car until I got back. It is an all uphill hike so go slow and steady. Wear a hat and put on sun screen. Enjoy!!

Great views the entire way. Well maintained with a good mix between mild rock scrambling and dirt paths. I'm not a view person, but inspiration point was stunning!

Old dilapidated mansions, newts, swimming holes and rock climbing.

Heading: 2 hours, we decided to go through the river jumping over rocks and through the mud vs the traditional route.

Return: ~1.5 hours, on the way back we took back the traditional road and only had to cross the river like 3x.

Weather: there is alot of overhead trees, thus not much exposure to the sun. It gets cold quickly if you go in the mornings. But once you reach the bridge, its pretty exposed and the feeling of the sun rays hitting your numb face is the best feeling ever!

Cargo: not a strenuous hike. Shorts, t shirt and a windbreaker (recommended, again not alot of sun and it gets windy in the mornings). Water proof hiking boots. You will get wet.

Summary: We did the hike with the intention of getting into the watering holes at the base of the bridge however it was extremely cold and probably would have got hypothermia jumping into the water haha. Regardless, the hike is really fun, especially running through the water. Hard to get lost, only really one way to go there and back. On our return, we saw big horned sheep!! I'll probably do this trail again when it gets hot to get in the water. Recommend to all!

Great day trip that is a nice drive out of LA and mostly shaded until you meet the cliff portion overlooking the canyon below (and beyond). The early part of the trail is almost flat and follows the creek until you make your way up and around the actual falls. You will eventually come back down along a relatively steep trail that will follow the lower part of the creek and finally to the falls. You can scramble your way up along the edges of the canyon to pools above the falls and in the summertime I would imagine that it would be crowded. Our rainy, Sunday in March kept the masses away and made this more enjoyable. Turn around and head back the way you came in but not before a side trip down bear canyon for more solitude and some more pools. The steep section of the trail that brings you back up will give you a (Very short) workout until you reach the flat and sheer cliffs up above. Perfect Sunday trip.

Great hike. Really great hike. Got lost though, which had me hiking twice as long and far as I wanted to. Download map. Without it I would have been screwed.

This place is absolutely beautiful! don't forget to bring water and snacks. It gets rocky on the trail so bring some good shoes and some good vibes!

Amazing weather amazing scenery

Beautiful, well-shaded hike through a canyon alongside a creek. Lots of trees, and the waterfalls were pretty cool. Not a challenging hike for me, but that was fine given the scenery.

No regrets

Great hike overall! Lost the trail a few times heading out to the bridge but when in doubt stay to the right side of the river and you will find the trail again. You will get your feet wet at the river crossings so be prepared. Suggest trekking polls to help balance on slippery wet rocks while crossing too. Bring plenty of water. We started at 8am and it was a cool 45 degrees, upon the return it was a toasty 77 and sunny! Our entire group of ten, experienced and not so experienced hikers enjoyed the day. Plan on 5-6hrs to complete the which gives you time at the bridge to explore.

This was a great hiking experience! I have done it twice and I am sure to return again.

It is not an easy hike even if there is not much elevation gain. It is after all 10 miles and you are stepping over logs, rocks, crossing streams, etc...some people have written that it is easy and they have done it in less than 4 hrs. which I find hard to believe...it took us about 5 1/2 hrs of hiking plus one hour spent at the bridge and in the pools. We started early with some shade but that only lasted for about 3 of the 10 miles total.

The sights and sounds of this hike are beautiful...no houses, power lines, traffic noise...just the beautiful sound of running water. The water not only sounded great, it looked amazing, felt refreshing, and tasted great. It looked so clean and felt so cool and refreshing that I not only got in the water at the bridge I tasted some of the water on the hike back and lived to tell about it.
