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.

Decent incline most of the way, lots of sun, great view at the top. Took me about 2.5 hours round trip.

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 :)

PROS: Easy to park, wide packed dirt trails, satisfying view when you get there, and good moderate exercise. Nice shady green park areas at the start/end. CONS: No shade and it can get really hot so take plenty or water and wear sunscreen. DON’T TAKE YOUR DOG IN THE HEAT.

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.

It’s great hike with kids.

Great for practicing 5ks!

You don’t need a reservation to hike. Park where the map takes you and hike.

Hi, I am planning to take this hike soon. I see people are commenting you need a reservation to hike. How can I make a reservation?

Since 2001 I have walked this lake. It’s a nature led love letter to the original community Easy breezy to walk. Northwest corner is home to many tents and self made homes. There are plenty of street vendors with drinks, fresh fruit, bacon wrapped hot dogs and elote! Bring a blanket.

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.

There is no shade slight breeze here and there you can view the Hollywood sign from either front or back depending how far you want to go trail is wide enough and sometimes you get to see people riding horses

A good walk if you like investigating haunted areas of town. Best time to go would be mid day or twilight, do not get caught in this park once the sun has set. The building (the McArthur) adjacent to the park on s Park View st has been in many films and tv so that’s cool. Also check out the spooky angels at the top of the building.

Easy trail and route, many connecting points so it’s easy to get off track. You can go to see the Hollywood from both front and if you decide to go an additional mile, you can see it from the back.

Trail is closed today 06/20/20. You need to make reservations.

Did Mount Chapel, as well. It's a Saturday, so lower trail was crowded and, no lie, about 70-75% of people were not wearing masks. This felt like a great workout. Adding the Mount Chapel route gives you the experience of a narrow, rocky and somewhat overgrown stretch. It feels off the beaten path and is definitely less crowded until it connects to the road leading up to the Hollywood sign. I saw horses and there is horse poo, but that doesn't bother me. Face coverings are mandatory in L.A. County (and the state). You're required to wear one when you're out of your home and interacting with people you don't live with — even outdoors. If no one is around, keep it in your pocket in case other humans appear. For runners, put one on when passing. The idea with cloth masks is to stop the virus from getting out, not in.

Great trail. A little close to 7 miles rndtp. STRETCH those calves for the first incline. Dirt path so only children that can walk or placed in a backpack (not ideal for a jogger/stroller). In terms of getting there follow GPS to Brush Canyon Trail (off Franklin and Canyon). If you follow the directions under the tab ¨Getting There¨, just be aware that Beachwood Drive is the same exit as Gower. Also, Beachwood Drive will take you through a neighborhood, and park after Belden Drive. You will walk a short distance and see the SaddleRanch gate, that is the path to go on. Sometimes gate is closed, so I recommend taking the Brush Canyon Trail route.

Overgrown of homeless, like the other guy said drugs and metal health issues. If u live around the area might be an ok walk rather than staying at home but definitely not worth visiting.

Great trails for beginners and family friendly. Can't wait to go again!

Excellent views. All up hill on the way, but on the way back makes for an easy hike.
