Visitors should use the Brush Canyon Trail from Canyon Drive, 2 blocks to the east of Beachwood Drive off Franklin, or Griffith Observatory. Canyon has a parking lot, sidewalks, trash cans, and facilities for visitors. This is a great hike if you are visiting or new in town with excellent views of the Hollywood sign. At the top is a 360 degree view behind the famous sign.

Finally made it! Went last weekend with two friends and we got incredible views and photos! Can check it off my bucket list!

I loved this trail. Lots of options for paths. You can even hike to the observatory. Great views. Would do again

Busy busy trail. Nice view of Great Los Angeles area. Not recommend to do after 9 a.m. cuz there is no shade and will be very very hot. Pretty good trail for beginners, not so steep, wide trail.

This is the 3rd trail I've done and it was a little hard for me but well worth it. It felt good to finally see the Hollywood sign.

This trail was a bucket list item for my 19 yr old daughter. Pretty phenomenal. Busy, BUSY trail. Parked in a neighborhood below sign and walked at least a mile (uphill) just to get to trailhead. Trailhead is manned by a security guard who fields questions and keeps an eye out for ne'er-do-wells. Took my Doberman puppy up -- his first big hike. It kicked his butt. No bathrooms, no water. No shade. Wide area to hike -- a road really. Great views of the LA smog. ;-)
