Went on the clearest day of the week and could see all the eay to the beaches. Beautiful, free parking, and nice place to get oictures of the Hollywood sign.
Wonderful place , worth the hassle of driving, looking for parking and the crowd! The views are breathtaking , pictures cannot substitute the experience . Love the Sochi Planetarium and Leonard Nimoy was not only comical but historically informative.

We picked up the trail and instantly felt transported by the beautiful trees and the fresh air! We followed the trail past the restrooms to the right, all the way to the top to... More
This was a bucket list of mine. Saw Rebel Without A Cause and dreamed about one day visiting. Have to say it was so much more. The views are spectacular and a wonderful way of seeing all of LA. We attended the planetarium lecture on the planets and we were riveted. My four year was mesmerised as the graphics were... More
