Amazing views of L.A

Great hike.My Wife and I are in pretty good shape and got in a seriously good work out. Saw Hollywood sign from top and bottom.Both incredible views. Bring plenty of water.The water spouts along the way were not working,they look like old pipes that are probably unreliable. There are an incredible amount of intersections on this trail.There is even a 5 point intersection.I used my all trails pro gps app and just tracked ourselves and checked at various points along the way.Its a good thing I did because some trails do not reconnect with each other and you will end up in a different area of the park! No shade but amazing breeze.Plenty of free parking.

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.

The hike was very horizontal and not suitable for any temperature other than a morning climate. Overall, though, the sights were breathtaking, and it was definitely worth my time.

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.

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.

This is one of my favorite trails when I want to get in a short hike.

best hike ever

Was a great little hike. Remarkable beautiful views. Love this place.

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!

re: the wording "future Los Angeles River Bike Path" is incorrect. That is an equestrian trail and bicycles are not allowed in any manner, way or form - riding, pushing, carrying: NO BIKES ALLOWED. Please fix your map.

This is a gem! Spring is the best time to visit as the falls are active and beautiful pools welcome tired tootsies. Early AM I found to be perfect for this trail. We returned a few weeks ago and the falls were but a trickle and the pools had dried.

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!.

I wouldnt say this hike is 7 miles long. we parked in the parking lot right in front of the old park. it takes under 5 minutes to get too and 20 minutes to look through. there is a look out point up on the hill,which is a lot of fun to get too.

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.

Awesome

My first time on this trail. Was able to go to the front of the a Hollywood sign and then took the trail to behind the sign 1 additional mile loop.Could see the Hollywood reservoir. Nice views of the Griffith observatory . Great city skyline views.

Excellent views and a pleasant hike

50% paved urban trail.

Short trail with a great view of L.A

First time I hiked this I was in a tour group with my hotel and I wore a full dress suit which was a terrible idea. Loved the hike so much I had to come back the next day and scale top at Indian Rock, needless to say I choose to wear shorts and a tee instead of a suit.

Very light hike.
We hiked up while there was downfall. Turned out to be the highlight of the hike. Coming down as the clouds cleared was far more beautiful than a clear day or the observatory would provide.
Overall nice easy hike with good views. Should be done by anyone visiting the area.
It only takes a few hours at most. I would recommend going early in the day so you can enjoy a nice lunch in the city while enjoying your photos.

Really good walk. Take some water.

The drive to the second parking lot can be a little rough. There is zero shade but other than that it was a nice trail with good views.
