The park has a series of trails that branch off a main trail. The views overlook Burbank and LA and are gorgeous. The trails are moderate to difficult, at least they are for me because they are steep in some areas.

Went midday during beginning of June. Overlook Burbank. It was smoggy. Maybe in the morning Or golden hour I would have liked it more. After doing Devils Chair, Paradise Falls, Vasquez Rocks, Hollywood Sign...simply didn't have that overwhelming feeling of accomplishments as other trails. Maybe water fall, back of hollywood sign, or a nice cool cave I'd feel more connected. At any rate it's ok

Great workout with beautiful views at the top! The majority of the trail is full sun exposure so bring plenty of water and sunscreen. Lots of parking in the lot. Wear good shoes as there are a lot of places with loose gravel. I didn't have an issue with this, but the guy ahead of me took a tumble and slid down a ways.

I try to do this hike 2-3 times a week for training. The view at the top is spectacular.

Loved this hike. It is very close to Hollywood/LA. Started the hike from the parking lot at the bottom entrance to Wildwood Canyon - right across from the golf course. Took the dirt trail about 100 yards past the entrance and from there it pretty much goes straight uphill all the way to the towers at the top. The views are sensational. The trails are hard pack and sometimes loose dirt, so beware of sliding. I used hiking poles coming down, but I saw very few people doing so. Take lots of water. And suntan lotion. You are exposed to the sun the whole way. No place to hide. At the top there is a bench by the first tower. I recommend walking behind the tower and going over to the next tower or two. The view just keeps getting better, and there are more benches.
