Great trail for an early morning hike. Will get crowded after 9am, so if you plan to hike this trail plan accordingly!

This trail is open today. It was busy, too. It's a fine, long walk. Some of the trails nearby are closed, Cahuenga Peak, Wisdom Tree, etc..

Great trail, easily marked and super wide, so you can keep social distancing. Although, if you want to see the Hollywood sign from the top, you need to get off this trail and take your left at the top. There are signs to guide you. I went at the end of the day, it totally worth it! Great view of the city!

No shade so I recommend going in the evening to see all the city lights! Pretty much an incline all the way to the top, but it was worth the views! There were also a LOT of frogs.

As a LA native I never really paid much attention to the Hollywood sign and seen this hike as a tourist attraction. However, it was definitely a worthwhile hike! The first mile or so is uphill and can be very tiring for those who are still new to hiking. I took the hiking route that takes you behind the sign, and then went back around to the front. Make sure to bring a lot of water. The path is pretty obvious so you won’t get lost. There were a lot of small flies when my group went and they can be very pesky.

Good for a quick run or walk.

Tons of homeless encampments along the river in the bushes. Use the buddy system. Plenty of parking.

Did this hike for my birthday last week. It’s been on my bucket list for a while. It was actually pretty busy. Not much shade and didn’t get as close as I hoped, but cool experience! Glad I did it!

Cute little park in Korea Town. The land was originally owned by Spain. It’s an easy loop to walk and heavily shaded. I really like it because it’s a great place to come grab some sunshine and perhaps a picnic. Most people had on masks and we’re doing a fair job of socially distancing. One couple did not have their dog on a leash and really should have because it’s required and he was not obedient. I tired quickly of listening to them call his name.

The faster you fly through it, the nicer it seems. Bonus points if you ride at the edge of the lake ;)

Starting from Whilshire Coming from Korea Town (western) Towards Alvarado. You’ll find yourself a downhill entrance, goal is to blast down the steep hill with a Good bike and avoid going straight into the lake. You’ll be making a left curve turn at the end of the drop. You’ll then race down the edge of the lake and turn sharp left for a hidden tunnel! Any road after that is a Bonus route.

I actually went from brush canyon to Hollywood sign which was an extra two miles. Nice workout

Hiked this trail today around 9:30am. Walked up to the trail to the back of the Hollywood sign and then walked to the trail in front of the Hollywood sign. Avoid the trail that leads to the back of the sign because you can barely see the sign. Take the trail to the front of the sign. You will love the view it’s so beautiful. You get the skyline and Hollywood sign view. Plus you can see the houses in the hills and have a little picnic on the dirt with the Hollywood sign behind you. This trail is a good trail to walk, jog, or run. The view is so pretty.

Love this little loop. It’s right down the street from me, a very convenient midday break from the [home] office these days. Paved the entire way and a very gentle walk, and dog and kid friendly—my little nieces absolutely love this spot. There are benches and tables scattered throughout to sit and enjoy the lake, or have an afternoon picnic. A great place to soak in some greenery, with a stunning view of the DTLA cityscape skyline.

May 15/2020 The trail is OPEN! So yes, go. It was hot out and dry. Bring lots of water. If going with a dog, bring a dish and it’s own water. No source on the trail. This is rated as moderate, but it’s easy. We went the extra “mile” (or so) up to the Hollywood sign. Total time at a slow pace was 3 hrs. Just long enough to stop and smell the flowers

It has since reopened due to COVID-19. Please wear a Mask and practice social distancing.

My favorite spot in the city. A true diamond in the rough. Extremely well kept, kid friendly, a perfect place for a picnic or meditation sesh.

Great way to pass an afternoon! Super easy. Would recommend.
