I love this place. My normal routine is to start from the bottom, Fuller Ave. There is a lil detour before it really starts. I jump right and straight to an incline. And then up the long stairs....I stay on my right all the time. If your starting from the bottom....the hollywood sign is to your right. Once i reach the top (theres a bench, plus bunch of people taking pics) i turn around and go back down. I run all the way down and go back up again.

I do 3 laps.

Nail this baby again , 2 laps around .. If you go up via the 3 hills , stairs , or pavement you're guaranteed a good work out .. Just be careful when running and don't run ppl over that are taking selfies ...

Nice hike with a great view of downtown and the hollywood sign. Defiantly kid friendly, however too crowed in my opinion. Watch out for land mines.

We're new to LA from NY and new to hiking. This is a nice trail for beginners. Great views of the city. Parking is a bit tricky though.

It's short , but the best value of this trail is on the intense uphills from the pavement up . Close to LA . Excellent work out depending on how hard you go ! Go hard or go home !!
