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 !!

More botox, tatoos and fake boobs on this trail than at Hooters. The views are great and the so are the vistas ;-). Some of the hills are a good workout. Be patient... this isnt the wilderness. Its a good reminder of what most people dislike about LA. Watch out you dont trip over the Selfie Eroticus.

Beautiful views and challenging, but not a killer. Some treacherous stairs along the way.

Don't park where it says not to. You will absolutely be towed!! Be patient. A legit spot will turn up.

I did this as a warm up the day before I did a Tough Mudder race and it was warm, dusty, exposed to sun for most of run, but I loved the views, yes even if it was of the city as well as the Hollywood sign. The people out there were all very friendly and ranged from your average runner to families of 7 out and about enjoying the sunshine. Few options out there on starting points making this an almost endless playground year round.

Great hike with beautiful views of the city, but always a lot of traffic on the trails. Definitely fun to do once, but wouldn't make this part of my routine.
