Balade sympa qui parvient jusqu'au pied de la mythique inscription. Par une journée de grosse chaleur, nous avons un peu souffert pour monter (bon, on a commencé à marcher à 10h du matin, notre avion s'était posé la veille à 23h... ça peut expliquer un peu de fatigue). Les rangers avaient mis à disposition des fûts d'eau fraîche à mi-parcours. Le trail lui même n'est pas forcément très intéressant mais offre des vues sympa sur LA.

the hike was pretty easy but some of the off trails end up dead ends so you have to be careful also it's hard to get across the stream in some places and we didn't see any birds it's supposed to be a refuge but there's plenty of water and the lake is big

I love this trail.. If your looking for a challenge on hills and a hard workout THIS IS THE PLACE

We took the trail from the north entrance of TCyn (Braude Park), and didn’t how long it was. There was so much mist that we couldn’t see 20 feet in front of us. We finally reached a place to get out of the trail and thanks to a nearby sign .08 mile to hub, we were able to find our way out of the park. Lovely, but long hike. Brings lots of water, hat, and snacks.

I love the hike ,because it was hike friendly.

Lovely day today!

this was a real easy walk more than a hike but the fence around the lake took some of the ambience out of play but still a fun time

Nice hike great view...

Pretty nice hike and it’s far enough removed from the city that you get a small taste of escape.

A there and back again trail. No shade, great views, perfect for runners and mountain bikers, though the latter should look out for cracks in the road here and there.

Nice hike bit steep if you aren't used to hiking. Probably not for kids.

Water refill station at Dantes view about halfway up

Super easy very flat partially in a neighborhood nice to take your dog on a walk.

Hiked this trail in late June, starting around 11:30 am. It was hot but there was a breeze, bring plenty of water. During the week there weren’t too many people hiking so it didn’t feel overly crowded. There are plenty of places for scenic look outs. I hiked to the top and got behind the Hollywood Sign and also hiked to get in front of it as well.

Great hike. For beginners it will be challenging. Uphill mostly. Might be challenging for small kids. Great hike for moderate hikers. Great practice for backpacking.

Nice short trail perfect for the evening before sunset. It's fully exposed, but well maintained even after the fire. Beautiful views of the Getty & into Santa Monica. Hike around rush hour to enjoy a laugh at the shmucks sitting in traffic!

Easy, pleasant neighborhood hike.

Really nice trail. From the parking lot, after approx 2 miles you can decide if to go left (see the sign from the front, bottom of the sign, or you can go right and you over the mountain, so you see the sign from the top. Totally suggested! Good for kids too, I suggest over 6 and with some trail experience

Great hike.
Stated 8:am Saturday since only 64F & overcast. Went counter clockwise. First 1.3 mi very steep and think difficult to run down if went clockwise. Like to get elevation gain over with in beginning. Picnic tables around mid point. Last 4 mi ish in mostly tree canopy. Trail perfect for running down hill. Lots of friendly women and men on trail. Trail out of Brentwood. Moderate traffic on Saturday. No snakes or lions.
BEWARE of hidden no parking signs.

I'm laying here after hiking and I don't know if it's the sun or just taking the more challenging parts of trail but I'm tired... lol This is a nice hike. What I like about it is that it is challenging enough to hike/run without being disappointed that there were no ocean views because of the haze. There is no shade so be sure to stay hydrated or hike closer to sunset. This trail is dog-friendly so be on the lookout since some people some don't pick up after their dogs.

The fire road trail is wide and paved in a way that is versatile enough to hike/bike ride and have your dog off-leash. On this particular day it was kind of hazy so I didn't get the clearest views of the ocean but I read that in a clear day you can see to Catalina. Always be aware that not only are there lizards and snakes but also dog poop to watch for. Also know that some of the mountain bikers come down hill quickly so be alert.

This was my first time but I found out about it because I wanted a trail that was close enough that I could take the dog with he visits. I like that there is a parking lot but also adequate street parking. Respect the neighborhood and when you visit we shouldn't have to worry about permits when the lot is full.

With nice views, a versatile trail and being another gem on the west side I can say that I would recommend this trail for those looking for a little bit of a challenge. Stay hydrated.

Main thing is about this trail is the views and the park.

I would not try running on this trail since its concrete all the way up.

Avoid the crowds and get there early. I started at 5:30am Saturday and had the trail all to myself. The first mile is a good incline, after that it evens out. Be careful not stepping on horse poop.

Mostly a bike trail

Fun fire roads for easy mountain biking.

Great place to get any level of hike and great views at each point.. There's a flag at one point and it's about 3.5 miles you can pass that and catch the pavement road to make it easier coming down.. By doing that you'll get a double treat cause you'll come back to a bench..

Short but very steep hike! Great work out, definitely feel the burn! Parking is a pain and lots of people. If you don’t mind parking far from the trail and crowds (I don’t mind) this is great option. Forever my favorite hiking trail!
