Be inspired to take it higher.

I've been to Temescal, Los Liones, Murphy Ranch and others in the area. I never really knew how they all connected but I always appreciated that each trail offered its own difficulty, views, history and charm. On this occasion I was looking for Rustic Canyon Loop trail and once again I found myself everywhere but where I intended to be.

I arrived at the trail and found that the parking was $12 or a sign that I believe said $3 per hour. Either use exact cash or make sure you have your card with you. Before heading up the trail I knew to expect beautiful views because the skies were clear and I was already somewhat familiar with other trails in the area. I saw horses from the park as I was heading up.

There are certain parts of the trail that are dog friendly but beyond Inspiration Point there are signs posted that warn of Mountain Lions. There are lizards all over the place and I was told that there was a rattlesnake so I was definitely on alert. The grade is a gradual climb to Inspiration Point not too difficult but it checks the box for view. You will be inspired from that point because you'll see the panoramic beauty of downtown LA, Santa Monica, the Palisades, Malibu the ocean and the grounds that make up Will Rogers State Park. It's really beautiful out there.

After leaving Inspiration Point I was inspired to go higher so after speaking to another gentleman I finally found a sign that said Rustic Canyon. I've tried to get there on different occasions but I could never find it while using my GPS. Long review short I went up another 2 miles or so. The path is pretty easy to follow and they do a great job of marking the direction so you stay the course.

I will definitely return here and make sure I have a fully charged phone and downloaded map so that that I can go deeper into the trail and see things that I haven't from the other trails that are a part of this park. I suggest this to those that want to find themselves getting lost in the view, the history and the challenge of going to different paths. Let Inspiration Point and Will Rodgers (Rogers) land inspire you to continue dreaming and climbing to reach another level in life.

NOT FOR BABIES/TODDLERS! We meant to take Innsdale Dr but ended up here (my fault). It has a very steep and narrow incline - super difficult babywearing a 2 yr old and 3 month old. I was also 3 months postpartum and it was a big workout for me - had to stop regularly on the way up. Still giving it 5 stars because it’s an intense workout and the view is great. We didn’t attempt to go over to the sign because of the kids, recommend Innsdale drive trailhead if you want to see the sign really well.

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

Great easy trail! Some area shaded well even in hot days. I personally love it. Don’t care much about dogs poop, it’s not the street. Animal faces part of the nature! Flowers all over!

I do this hike on a regular basis. Its great for people of all fitness levels. You can park free on Ferndell till sunset. Weekends will be very busy. For a longer hike and awesome views, continue past the Observatory to Mt. Hollywood.

Beautiful trail and not too busy! 5 stars for the trail and Vista; I'm knocking one star off because the trail has minimal signage and there are lots of diverging trails along the route. Once you're familiar with it, it's easy enough, but I definitely had to check my location a few times to make sure I was on the right track. Also, like any other trail in SoCal, there are rattlesnakes around, so keep an eye/ear out and be extra careful if you have a dog or child with you.

Love love love this trail

Took the stairs up to the garden and continued up the mountain. Bit foggy morning but still great views.

Great hike!!

Another trail that I've been doing since I was a kid. My dad would bring us every weekend because we live so close to Griffith park. On your way back down when you pass the Captains roost stay on the same trail you came up and it will be a 3 mile hike. Get here super early I suggest 5:00am because it gets really crowded. You have to pay for parking after 10:00am. $4 an hour!

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

An iconic L.A. hike you need to do at least once.

As a hike, this trail probably only merits three stars: a short, fairly easy path up a wide track, to views you can more easily getting driving up. What really makes this fun (especially if you're with an outgoing Golden retriever) are all the people you meet from all around the world. Ferndell, as the name implies, is a nice, shady dell, and seeing the Observatory get bigger as you get closer is fun.

Will definitely do this again!

Pay to park. Cash only! Surprise

Took a wrong turn along the way and came there after dark but a fun trail overall

Great hike! Love the views and the workout.

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.

I love starting here for the Hollywood sign hike because of the steep start. Definitely worth it.

Great views. 90%incline all the way to the sign. Your legs are gonna feel it for a couple days after. Great hike for fitness. Run on the way down.

Nice and easy hike up to and behind the Hollywood sign. Trail is more of a smooth dirt road and the presence of tire tracks indicates this. Went in January and it wasn't crowded and the temps were very 'normal', not too hot and not too cool. Sunset on the way back down was amazing!

quick and easy and yet so beautiful. one of my favorite secret gardens in LA.

wide trail. mod to heavy traffic. dog friendly. kid friendly

I enjoyed my hike, it was simple and not difficult on my knees. It has great views of LA, The Getty Center and you can get a glimpse of homes in Bel Air. The hike is clear but you can see the plant life regrowing from last years fires. Oh and this location is great for sunset!!!! I'm going back to see it soon.
