Located off Mulholland Drive in the Hollywood Hills, this park is especially loved by dog-lovers since they can hike with their dogs without a leash.

Took the intermediate-level trail to top of canyon, on recommendation of one of the servers at Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel restaurant. I had 70 degree temp and cloudless sky, so weather was definitely cooperating. Entrance to trail is short walk from hotel, then trail begins. If you don't want dirt and rock trail, you can take the paved trail, which I... More

It's free and it offers breathtaking views of LA. What more could you ask for? It was a great workout and wonderful experience.

Parking can be a little tricky but once you arrive at the trail it's beautiful. We went on a Saturday morning and it was busy but it was no problem. We stopped and thoroughly enjoyed the scenery along the way. The last part of the trail was very challenging as you literally had to use your hands to climb up... More

This is a very popular spot for hiking. I would recommend getting out there no later than 10am. You'll want to be done with your hike before the heat of the day begins. Parking can be tough so that's another reason to get there early.

The park is very easy to spot and directions are clear. There are many trails to choose from and all of them offer panoramic views of downtown LA and surrounding areas.

We hiked this park as a family the day after Christmas. It was a beautiful southern California day. The terrain is easily managed by hikers of all ages. It was a tad crowded but not to the point of distraction. You get some really fun views of the greater Los Angles area including the downtown skyline with the glimmering Pacific... More

You have to go a bit outside the city to make it there and parking can be a bit of an issue especially on a busy day (like Christmas holidays) but the views are totally worth it. The hikes we took were pretty easy but the park is so big that you can find a great number of hikes from... More

We had a great time hiking here. Be prepared for an actual hike, though, at times without a paved road (i.e., it’s not just a flat walking trail). The views are worth it!

It's a lovely hike but if you don't have a dog with you I think the fun factor drops by about 50%. Parking is super difficult but once you manage that just enter from anyway you can and just walk. It's a hilly hike so not sure why few people said it's a cake walk. It's one of the few... More
