Hiked from the Griffith Park Observatory to the Hollywood Sign. It was a gradual ascend/descend. Great for beginners. My only advise is BRING WATER LOTS OF WATER. The day got hot and this trail has NO shade. I was schocked at how many inexperienced hikers were out there with pets and no water or too little. I shared 1.5 liters of water with fellow hikers due to lack of planning on their end.
Finally got a chance to say I've been their instead of just driving by nice hike awesome views all the way to the famous Hollywood sign had a good workout
Great hike, but not one I would do again during the warmer months. For me personally I would of enjoyed this hike Oct to Feb. Stroller and dog friendly, very wide trail, fun for large groups to walk side by side to socialize.
it's actually about 6.2 miles if you start by the pony rides and back (passing by the golf academy), which is my favorite way to do it. Bring water, there's not much shade on the trail so start early. The views are great (clear day you can see Catalina). The water at the Joe Klass faucet is helpful but worse tasting than the one at Dante's peak so bring enough to get you there. Great hike.
