The reservoir has been a staple in my running routine for the last year. There are 2 nice points of incline so you'll get a light burn while running this loop. Advice: Skip the overcrowding during peak hours and go early in the morning as the sun rises.

It’s extremely crowded and a little chaotic, especially early in the day and at sunset.

Nice walk, trail along the reservoir but sidewalk outside fence gate is open. Great neighborhood.

Lovely suburban mostly flat decomposed granite wide trail around fenced in reservoir. However the area has lots of “stair streets” and I recommend adding them to the hike. Cove street stairs. Loma Vista street stairway goes up then down about 200 feet. Return via Earl street stairs enjoy the view of the Hollywood sign on a clear day and walk back to the reservoir. Enjoy! (I live in the hood and it was great to see the stairs in the area show up on the map too!)

Excellent place to bring your dog for a good walk and or walk. There is a dog park right next to it. Me and my fur buddies loved this place. Parking is in residential area, this wasn’t a problem for us. We found parking easily.

Moderately used by walkers and runners. Good views of the housing along the reservoir. Very warm with limited shade.

Beautiful day for a quick walk around the reservoir. It’s not the best but not the worst place for a walk/run in LA.

Very convenient and tons of parking along the road, but as a result, it's usually quite well-trafficked. Early mornings or weekend nights (when everyone is out at the bars) are very quiet here, though. But your average Monday evening? Expect a lot of foot traffic (groups of teens walking 5 people wide) and dogs yipping at your ankles because their owners are too distracted Facetiming a friend. Bonuses: bathrooms and water fountains.

Was looking for a flat place to run..the inclines are steeper than they look. Solid 2 mile loop though.
