Offered great views of the Hollywood sign without having to fight crowds or share a trail with hikers and bikers. Easy to follow paved path was nice as an out of towner ... no worries about taking a wrong turn. Did the loop twice and even though it was 90+ there was enough shade to make it tolerable.

I took my electric bike for a nice workout and found the trail to be very easy. Not too crowded in this Sunday morning from 8 to 9. Be careful of the parking spots because i saw two tickets were given within 5 minutes for the poor souls who didn't read the signs carefully. You can see the Hollywood sign from the dam. The air was fresh because it is early. I spotted 3 to 4 deers. Watch out for the one with the sharp antler. He was hanging out on the road very close to some hikers. There were no fence between him and the hiking crowd. He seem to be more scared of us though.

This is less of a trail, and more of an asphalt road shut down to cars. Most of the path is enclosed by chain link fence, and lots of locked gates.

Mullholland dam is the most scenic part of the circuit, though you get a sense that more of the trails were once open to the public, but are now closed off. :/

Great for cyclists, with its level and even loop.

Love this trail. Ran track-wise from north end, felt downhill the whole way AND no dogs allowed, this is what running in heaven must be like!

Easy. Can't access the water. Mostly recommended for running.
