This 11 mile (mostly) loop takes you up Upper Hectic, over Sullivan Ridge, up Sullivan Canyon and back down Lower Hectic. This hike gives your three distinct environments. Upper Hectic is an amazing hike on its own with great views and a beautiful payoff at Mulholland with views of both the San Fernando Valley and the West side. Sullivan Ridge is surrounded on all sides by mountains and has sweeping ocean views. Sullivan Canyon is a canopy covered forest with a steady but manageable incline. (Lower Hectic gets you home quickly....a better descent than Upper Hectic.) A few things to note; 1) keep your eyes peeled for the turn back into Sullivan Canyon. The trail is very apparent but still easy to miss. 2) The last quarter of a mile from Sullivan Canyon to Mulholland Drive is very steep and tiring.Show more
