A great trail for a quick work out. Great 360 degree views of LA.

Slow climb up, quick run down. I went at sunrise, so it wasn’t as hot. No ocean views and the city views were nice. There weren’t as many bugs out right now.

Good trail. Perfect for running/biking. Some hard parts

Great time of year to go. It was just cool enough today and cooled a bit extra by the ocean air. A little tricky to find the right trailhead: once you go through the Los Liones gate you need to cross the drainage area to the left. Then it’s a very steep ascent but I enjoyed it! Views on the route back were great and we didn’t run into anyone on the way up. LOTS of poodle dog brush to watch out for on the way up though. That section was overgrown so either do a lot of dodging or wear long pants!

Very steep! Great workout, little trashy though.

It was easy.

I really enjoyed this hike. Great view from Glendale peak. There are some challenging hills on the way up. Be warned, there’s one section of the trail that gets very steep and gravely, I was worried about slipping. Bring extra sunscreen if you’re doing this on a hot day.

Great way to see the Hollywood sign. Super quick little hike. Great for people who don’t like to hike! Take water & sunscreen!

a lot of horse shit. especially in the beginning of the trail. a long walk by the road and it smells like gas.

so many places to relax, workout, or just stare out. includes a Japanese garden and hiking trails.

Good exercise. Not tons to see.

My favorite hike! I always end up at the observatory.. I rather go in the morning or subset time.

Make sure to do this early in the morning because there is no shade and it gets HOT. It’s a pretty solid incline the whole way. Can’t get crowded if you get here after 8am on a warm day. Bring lots of water and sunblock.
