Awesome short hike with some intensity. In an out in less than two hours. I was an asshat and forgot my mask in the car and realized it halfway up when we encountered our first set of people. I covered my face with my shirt. The trail is narrow and rocky but I think people did the best they could to let others pass so we were complying with distancing but I can’t say that everyone was. And awesome view once you get to wisdom tree. You get sights of The SF valley and Los Angeles.

Very rocky. You will slide a lot if you aren’t careful here. There’s parking on Lake Hollywood Dr for free and you have to walk through a residential area, but the sight is well-worth it. Also be warned that it’s all uphill and not very forgiving so if you were looking for something easy this is definitely not it. The peak was beautiful and can take you to the back of the Hollywood sign if you are still up for it after the climb.

Steep climb up, a lot of sun exposure so wear sunscreen. Beautiful views but can be a bit hard for newbies. Be prepared to use your hands but absolutely worth the sweat when you get to the wisdom tree. Bring water and enjoy!!

I really enjoyed this trail. Great incline up but not to hard.When you reach the top there are several points of interest. There is a flag put their in Memorial to 9/11 and the Wisdom tree (with a sign) is well known as back in 2009 when there was a fire that had burnt the Mountain and surrounding area, the only thing to withstand the fire was the tree. So it had gotten the name Miracle tree or Wisdom tree. There is also a trunk next to the tree filled with items you can sign or leave. And the views are awesome. I will definitely be back to check out more of the area...

I read that I shouldn’t go down the “back way” and I agreed to myself not to and alas, I did anyway. Just know you will be sliding down the mountain for 10 minutes and there’s a lot of brush to walk through Maybe one day I will come back and tie a rope. In the meantime, check the album to understand. Beautiful hike otherwise!

Did the loop counter clockwise. Steep but fun the first half up to the tree. Doing the rest of the loop the way down was very challenging. Super steep and sandy. Make sure you have shoes with good grip

This was my first hiking experience EVER! Not for beginners- Challenge Accepted! It was a 30-minute hike uphill and a couple of steep climbs. There were lots of dust and loose rocks, but the view on top was so worth it in the end!

Took my 2 yo daughter. Was a bit steeper than I anticipated but it was enjoyable. The recent rains have made the trail muddy and so ravines in the path

Great trail for training and views of Los Angeles and Burbank. It can be a bit slippery given the loose sand on rock so a walking stick is recommended.

One of my favorite hikes! A lot of technical trails, rocky, hiking shoes a must. I took this on up to Cahuenga Peak, then to the back of the Hollywood Sign. If you like hikes that'll keep you on your toes, you'll love this one.

Beautiful views! After hiking to the Wisdom Tree, we continued past Cahuenga Peak to get to the Hollywood sign. That section was challenging in parts, but worth the view!
