Is there seriously a fine for hiking up there?

Great hike however it is no longer a loop. It is a there and back. Looking at the map the northwest ridge is closed and there is a 1,000 dollar fine for hiking it.

I love it but a few minor annoyances. Parking is not close as there’s a teeny tiny lot. There is street parking several blocks away , the streets closest to Hellman are permit parking only. The hours are ridiculous. 9am to 5pm or 6pm depending on the season. I never biked in here but there is no biking allowed anymore. Also there were a few side trails that are a bit easier to get to the top. Most are closed off now.

It sounds like a lot of annoyances actually lol, but it really is a great workout and beautiful views if you don’t mind the other stuff.

Nice heavily traveled hike. The uphill is very challenging. The problem is not with the hike the problem was with the city of Whittier wear myself and friends I hiked with all received parking tickets. There is no where to park only a small parking lot that is full. Where are you supposed to park to hike at this place? It was a very expensive hike I doubt if I will be back city of Whittier is taking advantage of people

Great Hike. It was my first hike in a long time, so it was challenging. View up at the water tower is spectacular. My hike down was serene as I took the trail that hugs the northwest side of the hill. Definitely be back again.

Nice local hike with a pleasant view of the ocean on a clear day. Can be very hot on a sunny summer day. ALSO BE SURE TO EXIT THE PARK'S GATES BY 6 PM (summer hours) sharp because a park ranger will lock the gates and ticket you.
