This is the best trail to get in front of the Hollywood Sign!! You can also go to the observatory once you are up in the trail. The hardest part is finding parking and then you are off. No bathrooms on the way. I went during the heat of the day, I took my liter water bottle. It took me 2 hours total while I stopped for lots of pictures. If you bring your dog, don’t forget WATER for them!! I saw so many people with large dogs, husky’s in 90 degree weather.... one collapsed... it’s hot on their feet too and they can suffer heat stroke!! Anyways sorry about my dog rant, there is a nice breeze and the beginning starts out with lots of shade and then it opens into a dirt road for truck access.
You will see horses on the trail if you are lucky; I also saw a man and his goat. There are trash bins in the area which was nice. The Bronson park opens at sunrise and closes at sunset so keep that in mind. My recommendation is to go early in the morning and bring a small car for parking. I would also wear a hat that has flaps on the back and sides for those that have sensitive skin, sunscreen and bring a little nap sack so you are hands free.
