Brisk, chill hike. Not too long, not too challenging.

Fairly simple trail. Gets a little steep just before the switch back at the Beacon Trail overlook. Went on a Tuesday morning around 9:30. Not too busy but definitely bring a mask for a few parts you can’t physically distance. It was probably a 50/50 mix of people with masks today. Little shade, but there are a few spots. Goes opposite direction of the Old Zoo, so don’t do this trail if you are trying to go to the zoo.

Rather than out and back, I made it into a loop. Once all the way up Beacon Hill, come back down where you came and take the narrow path to the right. Added a little bit of challenge going down.

Starts with a good incline but levels off. Pretty easy hike with nice views of the city. Trail led to the old la zoo, which was interesting to explore

Great hike! Beautiful city views of both Downtown LA and Downtown Glendale. Not too strenuous of a hike pretty easy going with some incline. Have seen deer on this trail in the evening.
