I'm not a fan of fire road "trails," but at least there was room for my friend and me to walk side by side. This Mineral Wells trail is the closest to the one we actually did. We started at Fern Canyon, then turned west at 5 Points to Vista Viewpoint. We followed the road around Bee Rock, then took a side trail through the Old Zoo and back to the parking lot. No coverage, so it was hot--keep that in mind. I gave five stars, because it was a good workout, nice views and I love Griffith Park. Next time, I'll record.

Easy and very nice. Rock, woods, very small rivers... A variety if elements to enjoy. The ride. Excellent for kids that will trigger their imagination.

Great hike with a good vibe. Lots of people and lots of dogs. Trail is well marked. Snacks and water were for sale at entrance for reasonable price.

Great family trail, lots of shade, cool for summer time.

Nice hike with the younger kids...

My favorite hike this far it’s pretty steep and pretty hard but got through it. It’s one of those hikes that you can’t really go back once you’ve started the trail back down where you start is even steeper so you have to push through the extra mile. I can’t wait to do it again now that I know what to expect I was expecting after the 1/2 mile to be another 1/2 mile but it was like an extra 2plus miles but still better then turning around. I hope you wear shoes with traction my shoes had none so it was a lot more difficult getting up those steep mountains and getting down. Your going to need a lot of water FYI.

We hiked 9 am-noon on a Saturday. The parking on Mt. Wilson Road was nearly full including with a bunch of mountain bikers, so it was a delight to find that on the trail, even on a summer Saturday, we only saw about a dozen other hikers and three bikes the whole time. Decided to follow the map hiking out via the road and then coming back via Mount Lowe summit. The Mount Lowe summit trail is easy to overlook and we almost headed on all the way to Inspiration Point, but turned back. There's intermittent shade, especially in the morning, for much of the way, especially the middle 2 miles or so. Easy walk out and downhill on the road, more rigorous steep ascent up to Mt. Lowe summit on the way back, punctuated by handy and charming viewfinders. Great views of the San Gabriel Valley, Los Angeles basin - and all the way to the ocean if you're lucky.

Saw a sweet little horny toad atop of Mt. Lowe, a few hummingbirds and butterflies along the way and what looked like a bunch of tiny squirrels inside the tunnel near the trailhead.

Short and easy trail but the pay off is that you can say you went to the original Adam West Batcave!

Very cool

Also saw a bunch of little animals on the way, which was fun.

it was a nice little hike but not much water this time plenty of shade and friendly people

It's a good workout but not much of a nature trail. Most of the trail is paved (even for the longest route). Parking is terrible. I got there at 7:45 and had to park half a mile away.

A fun little trail with a few stream crossings that's easy to get to and easy to follow. The best part is that a majority of the trail is in the shade, perfect for a summer morning hike! Get there early because parking is quite limited and you need an adventure pass.

Good for views and exercise but not much of a nature trail.

Amazing views of Hollywood and Los Angeles. Parking could be an issue but after 3 or 4 round you finally find it! The trail is not really hard but there is no shade at all, so bring a hat and sunscreen. It is a great place to go for a quick hike and I would definitely go back soon!

Easy and short. Caves are semi cool, and you can see the Hollywood sign after you pass the caves. Good place to bring out of towners who can’t handle much incline or long treks

Super easy nice warm up

Short, beautiful, oak-shaded trail to a waterfall. Rated easy, but I would not wear flip flops or take my grandmother on this hike: uneven terrain, some uphill. But if you're somewhat prepared and in shape, well worth doing.

This is a great trail, with hiking for all sorts of skills, but it is generally steep.  There is a fire road that is pretty well paved and wide.  There on the west side is an off road type hiking trail where some sort of boots are recommended.  The trails all intersect so I recommend taking a picture of the map when you start because you'll have no cell service and you don't want to be hiking in endless loops.  Plenty of people on the trail but parking is limited for sure and they do ticket

This hike renders a wonderful view of Hollywood/LA and the trail head was easy to find. Be prepared to spend some time looking for parking. However this trail offers some decent incline/decline and is great for a quick hike/workout. There is no shade on the trail, bring a large hat and some water. You'll be just fine!.

Easy short trail.

Freakin hot out, suggest going at dusk or dawn. Not a whole lot of shade. Good trails, good views, not crowded but a popular spot.

Probably one of the coolest sunsets I've ever seen out at the peak.

Awesome
