muy bien

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.

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!

Great trail!

The paved route is a moderate for beginners due to the incline. The steep dirt trails work the legs and definitely get your lungs working. Would suggest a buildup to the harder routes. Hopefully I’ll have more time soon to make it to the top of the ridge. All in all a very good trail with the park at the bottom to crash on afterwards

very nice place!

Great workout. Nice views. Well maintained.

A bit crowded on the weekend. I went in September and it was a bit hot. But still a decent hike.

This is a great place to run or hike. Today i did the trail to the flag and passed that to the pavement road and took it back towards the bench to my starting point, not sure why my recording went crazy after my start point but although i can do 25 miles it wasn't that,i think more like between 10 to 15.. either way i run this trail often and recommend people to pick up after you dogs and take the bag with you.. lol

Es una ruta excellente porque puedes escojer por la tierra(muy dificil) o el cemento (mas lejos) pero ambas son un super ejercisio.

I did this as a cool down from the Hollywood sign hike. Don't really like the fences that are up, but I get it. Also was just too flat for me. This hike is good for a nice easy walk. Saw a couple deer while I was here.

Ducks and swans in the lake. Bird melodies. Pedal boat rentals. Finding parking on the weekend can be difficult.

Great hike take dirt road (if experienced ) straight up .. Amazing views of San Fernando. Valley and Santa Clarita Valley Along the ridge line . A lot of trails to choose from Especially once you are at the top . .

awesome brings me back to my love days

Not happy that the lake is on the opposite side of the trail which in turn gives a not so good view of the lake. Lots of traffic on two way street, with lots of cars going pretty fast... therefore I wouldn’t recommend any young impulsive children on this easy trail. Don’t want to discredit the location and beauty of being around the holly wood lake. This is just not what I was expecting. We went to franklin after which was amazing and perfect for my lil ones.

Very beautiful hiking for beginners, more walk than hike. Amazing view. You can see clearly Hollywood sign

This trail should not be listed for mountain biking, or at least rated as a black diamond for biking (definitely not a blue). There is a sign that says no mountain biking along the trail as well, and the entry to the Hogback trail is essentially unmarked and is not maintained. I had to go off trail to avoid the no MTB section and missed the Hogback trail entry twice.

this hike is not as tough as I thought but it was foggy so we didn't get a very good view

Nice view...

Really nice , i try 2 times before to go all the way to the top but today i made it to the flag , amazing views , i will do it again ..

boy we found a shortcut that has a lot of overgrowth but it's very steep and it cuts off almost a mile of the trip to mount Hollywood Peak

Steep incline, pretty tough hike but definitely worth it. View is amazing from the top and just be careful when coming back down!

This is my favorite trail in Griffith Park but I start this down by the pony rides/train ride. It makes the hike longer and more of a workout. Park down by the horses and walk across the street to the start of the hike, you can’t miss it. It will join up with other trails but eventually ends at Mt. Hollywood Summit which has amazing views of downtown LA and the observatory. If you take the hike from this starting point you don’t get the best views of the Hollywood sign.
