Balade sympa qui parvient jusqu'au pied de la mythique inscription. Par une journée de grosse chaleur, nous avons un peu souffert pour monter (bon, on a commencé à marcher à 10h du matin, notre avion s'était posé la veille à 23h... ça peut expliquer un peu de fatigue). Les rangers avaient mis à disposition des fûts d'eau fraîche à mi-parcours. Le trail lui même n'est pas forcément très intéressant mais offre des vues sympa sur LA.

this was a real easy walk more than a hike but the fence around the lake took some of the ambience out of play but still a fun time

Hiked this trail in late June, starting around 11:30 am. It was hot but there was a breeze, bring plenty of water. During the week there weren’t too many people hiking so it didn’t feel overly crowded. There are plenty of places for scenic look outs. I hiked to the top and got behind the Hollywood Sign and also hiked to get in front of it as well.

Really nice trail. From the parking lot, after approx 2 miles you can decide if to go left (see the sign from the front, bottom of the sign, or you can go right and you over the mountain, so you see the sign from the top. Totally suggested! Good for kids too, I suggest over 6 and with some trail experience

Avoid the crowds and get there early. I started at 5:30am Saturday and had the trail all to myself. The first mile is a good incline, after that it evens out. Be careful not stepping on horse poop.

This hike starts on a steep dirt fire road. Heading east up the canyon. Once out of the canyon the hike levels out. Good views can be had of LA. The trail is very popular, we saw many people out on the trail. The Hollywood Sign was the highlight of the hike.

I’d say it was pretty good. Easy uphill almost like the concrete of Runyon but in dirt so you can actually take regular sneakers. No need for hiking boots. It was a total 4 miles up and done so it’s not so bad. When you are close to reaching the Hollywood sign taking the holkyridge trail do rent horses so expect poop smell lol. Parking was very easy to find at 4:30pm and it was not busy at all like the weekend.

We took a short cut through a gate that could only be opened by exiting and it was only 2 miles from that point. I recommend that most if you want time and energy to explore the rest of LA in the same day!

Wonderful scenery! If you start from the Griffith Observatory area, make sure to head left (descending) for a shorter route. Follow the trail to Mt. Lee to get a closer look of the Hollywood sign. Watch out for horse poop, though.

Lots of horse poop on this trail and not a lot of shade. There’s also not a lot of parking.

Great little hike, the first mile is the only real incline. The only thing I didn’t like was the horse poop all over the place. I wish horses were not allowed. We were stuck behind a horse group for a bit and that was annoying too bc they are slow and hard to pass. There were a lot of ppl on Saturday, even at 8am but the trail is wide enough that it’s not an issue.
