Decent trail, we started at 10:30 and wrapped up at 2. It was hot out there and it was a pretty slow pace. The trail is shared by horseback tours which are fun to see but they leave lots of poop behind. View of the Hollywood sign is perfect! We were lucky with a clear day and views of Griffith Observatory and downtown as well.

Accidentally paused the recording earlier. the trail takes about an hour. The trail doesn’t take you to the sign! Also, a couple splits on the way, recommend following the app! Overall, wide roads, no shade, moderate slope, lots of parking.

HikingGreat!

Second time on this trail . Not so busy around 2pm but definitely hot out there. 90% of the time there is no shade . Might find a tree with some . A bit dusty because of horse trails. Do bring extra water and a hat . Did 4 miles to viewpoint #1 in less than 2 hours

No shade and dusty. Bring a hat or anything that will you give some escape from the sun and wear sunscreen! Do yourself a favor and bring an extra water bottle on top of what you think you will need. I did not bring enough and regretted it! Come early to avoid the sun! Horse tours take this same trail so lots of horse manure towards the second half of the trail. Not a lot of areas to sit and catch your breath. It was harder than it looks to be honest.

Dry and rocky, no shade, steady incline up, looottsss of horse poop so watch where you’re walking! Nice views of LA from the top. You don’t exactly get to see the Hollywood sign from the front but you can see more of an up top/back view.
