Easy walk. Nice view of the Hollywood sign.

Brief by nice view of the lake once you get to the bridge. Not much shade but a decent loop around.

This trail was a little overgrown in some areas. We started the trail clockwise and we came across a very steep uphill for the first 1.5 miles or so. This would be extremely hard for a small child or an elderly person to hike. Once we made it to the top the views were absolutely beautiful. The rest of the loop trail coming down was fairly easy. If you want a great workout, this trail is for you!

Was a nice easy trail! Started off with a flat walk around the lake. Great view! After the bridge is where the real hiking starts. Overall nice and easy :)

This was a good light workout ... beautiful views .

It's a long hike that requires lots of water and sunglasses or a hat. The first half was on a wide fire road, but most of the last half included a very long decline which I could feel in my shoes and legs. The decline is shaded and narrow so we had to go off to the side very often to keep a distance among those passing us. It felt good to see the ocean and put my feet in the ocean at the beach. We parked near the trailhead and took an Uber back. The restroom midway was closed.

Short, direct, low traffic route to Parker Mesa Overlook. Steep in places and overgrown in most, but the trail was easy to follow, just wear pants! Chose to make it a 5 mile loop by going down the long way around the more relaxed and heavily trafficked trails.

The smell when you arrive near the Hollywood Drive entrance is very bad. The walk seems sterile because the “lake” where I believe they are cleaning sewage, is gated. There’s only one good view and that’s where you are crossing the dam. That view is the only thing that kept it from being terrible. We like unpaved hikes with variation, views, water access and/or views. The view of the Hollywood sign was exquisite though. The best and closest view I’ve experienced. Very little shade.

The app shows this is for biking but there are signs saying NoBikes. Wasted trip.

We went clockwise and - like other reviews mention - the first ~ 1.8 miles is quite steep in certain areas and a little overgrown, but all-in-all a nice challenge and definitely a good way to get some cardio in. It took us about 35 minutes to complete the parker mesa - rabbit hole leg and ~1hr to do the leisurely descent down East Topanga Road and the Los Lioness trail. The view at the top is totally worth it. Definitely wear appropriate shoes if you go clockwise.

Great for practicing 5ks!

Fun easy trail for beginners. Partial shade along the trail with plenty of lizards to keep you company. Hiking shoes recommended.

Not much of a hike and more of a walk. Great if you wanna get a run or walk in the morning. No pets allowed. Watch out for the angry Karen’s that will pick a fight with you if you are caught with your dog on this walk.

Beautiful views and nice trail. I’d recommend going clock wise . The first 1/3 of the hike is overgrown and steep

Last segment of trail was over grown so unfortunately what was a loop trail adventure ended up being a point to point.

Trail isn’t as hard to follow as some other previous reviews have noted but it’s definitely “rustic” - pretty overgrown at points and LOTS of poison oak lining the trail. Pants are a must. All that said, it’s a really fun and interesting hike if you’re feeling adventurous and don’t mind ducking some plants and bugs. Very few people on the trail and it definitely feels remote. Some incredible views too. We did the canyon first and it was definitely nice to have the fire road and no overgrowth as the finish to the hike.

Took this trail all the way down to Sunset and then back up. Stopped at Gelsons in the Palisades to refuel on snacks and water. beautiful views. Pretty empty trail except for the portion that's closest to Temescal Park. Most of it is a fire road with options for side trails that go up and down the hills adjacent to the fire road. The side trails are a little overgrown but passable and they add a little extra challenge if you want it. Free parking at the top of Reseda Blvd and plenty of it.

Make it to the top the view is worth it. If you decide to do it go clockwise.
