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.
