Descent moderate hike. Pretty steep incline, but short distance to the top. The vistas near the "wisdom tree" at the top are pretty nice, especially on a clear day. The optional additional walk over to the Hollywood sign is ok--not a must do.

It's a great hike with amazing scenic views of both dtla and the valley. Quite steep in several areas. My friend and I completed this hike in about 3 hours, actually sticking to the zig zagging map they have here. Steep drop offs but I'll definitely return

Wonderful hike with fantastic views. The trail is rather steep, so watch your footing on the loose rock and soil; soak in the views. Start early to avoid the crowds; plenty of photo ops with The Wisdom Tree.

Awesome! The Wisdom Tree was very peaceful and calm. The way down from the tree was a little steep and rocky but it was fun :-)

Steep climb to the top. It only took me about 25 minutes. The wisdom tree is beautiful, and an automatic awesome photo. The best part was the box full of wishes :)

Would say this is a better hike than the holyridge trail. Initial hike from the parking spot to the top is somewhat steep. Word of precaution to those who might do this during the evening and at night time- bring a flashlight, since you can easily slip off the side of the trail. Once you get to the top, awesome views of the L.A. and the valley area. Also fun reading some the stories that people leave behind up there. Happy hiking

Steep hike up, but it's not too long and the view and Wisdom Tree are worth it! I did it at sunrise, which I would highly recommend. Great to see the city at that time. Just be careful on the way up, because the trail is rocky.

An excellent hike very steep and it takes 30 minutes to reach the top and play a visit to wisdom tree. Excellent 360 degrees views from San Fernando valley and LA. It's not a busy hiking trails and just local hikes with their dogs. From the top you can see the back of the Hollywood sign. Also u can visit the famous landmark just from the top and following the trail till you reach the pavement road and then you are exactly there. Have fun, take entry of water and some food. 3 hours average doing the whole thing till the Hollywood sign
