Trail follows paved roads only. 1/3 of the hike is just walking on the streets. There are much better hiking options which cover the same sights.

Nice walk. Lots of fence and people around. Fun view of the Hollywood sign.

Easy walk along a paved path. Much quieter than other city hikes, like Runyon Canyon.

I saw a deer and a nice view but most of the hike is fence

We perfected the Hollywood Hills hike! This trail starts at the Hollywood Reservoir, then up to the back of the Hollywood sign and then over to the Griffith Observatory. We choose to Uber to the starting point and from the end point since it is always crowded and very hard to find a parking space. Enjoy!
