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.

Good workout. Can see horses from sunset ranch along the way. If you wanted to ride horses along the trail you can rent them at sunset ranch. Bring plenty of water.

This a great hike to see the Hollywood sign. Challenging which makes it fun. Not to much shade so bring a hat or umbrella also bring plenty of water too. As for bringing kids on the trail be prepared to carry them.

Apparently completed this trail only a week before it was closed. No shade available on the trail, so be prepared. Bring enough water, the view of LA at the top is really nice but nearly all views of the sign have some sort of obstruction.

A nice scenic hike. We were asked by a few people if they can do the hike with sandals. The answer is NO. It is way too long for sandals. The hike overall is a gradual incline/decline and is more on the easy side of ranking. The view at the top is the big payoff

Heavily trafficked route. Still a good way to have a glance at the entire city, and amaze your friends who are visiting LA for the first time. Bring lots and lots of water!
Would be great for trail running too, when it's not too warm out.

I thought I was going to die while doing this hike. It was way more than a moderate hike. But super pretty and worth it !

The trail was up hill most of the trail. Bring water!!!! Even if you don't have a camel back. Bring a back pack with a couple waters. It was 84° but was mostly sun, so felt like 95°. Wear sunscreen.

Great hike! I started at Lake Hollywood Blvd and WonderView Entrance. It's an immediate incline all the way up to Wisdom tree. It was really hott. Bring water. I wore tennis shoes and I was fine. It was rocky but such a great work out. I saw two people turn around due to the heat and steepness so be careful!!
I go to the Hollywood sign and then went down a paved road. I went though trails and residential area to get back to my car. It was about a 6.5 mile loop. Can't wait to do it again!

Tried to go here but there was a closed off gate wit restricted access. Found out from some locals that it was closed to the public about 1 month ago. Need to go to the Observatory to get started instead.

Great Hike, too bad they are closing down the Beachwood Dr entrance. Just did this this weekend, its a bit of a steep uphill hike through and through with some flat land here and there but mostly uphill. Definitely recommend for great views of Los Angeles and surrounding cities
