Easy to follow, wide track trail starting at the pony rides/miniature train station. Most of the climb is moderate, till you get to the short but steep single track to the summit. There are lots of signs, and the trails are well maintained. Not the best views of DTLA, Silver Lake, and Burbank, but worth it if you're close.

First half is cool and the summit is nice, particularly around sunset. But the hike falls apart in the second half. The trail is barely there at times so you'll find yourself scampering down loose dirt and rocks, ducking under bushes to stay on the trail. You might want to pick a different route after Beacon Hill. There are a few choices.
