Great little hike. Most of the hike has a nice wide trail that is well maintained (and part of it paved). The end of the hike was through a residential neighborhood. Nice views of the valley, but nothing amazing. Not too crowded, but passed people every couple of minutes. Saw Mountain bikers, dog walkers, and trail runners in addition to people out for a walk. Great place to get some exercise.

Not bad it is only a 2.7 mile hike. You get a good sweat and a nice workout. I will do it again.

Love the fact that it is half shady so you don’t sweat balls off in the summer.

This is my favorite neighborhood hikes. Very new bathrooms located in the parking lot. And there are a couple hidden trails. The main trail is great for jogging or walking. At the end you can take a stroll in the quite neighborhood with gorgeous houses. (See if you can find the old Kardashians house)

Come here all the time for a little exercise. First quarter of the trail is the hardest, then it’s a nice and easy incline and then descends at a comfortable pace. Nice view at the top and lots of people usually around. Partially paved in the beginning, but mostly a dirt path for the rest of the hike.

Fryman is perfect if you want a nice, easy hike without leaving the city. Unless you arrive very early, the parking lot will be full, but you may be able to find some neighborhood parking off of laurel canyon. The main trail is well maintained, but I recommend taking the narrower footpath about a quarter mile or so from the trailhead. There will be fewer people on this path.
