Our 12-year old daughter wanted to go here because she found it on Pinterest. I am so grateful to her for suggesting it - what a beautiful place, far from the hustle and bustle of LA, but with gorgeous views of the Hollywood sign and...More

This is a wonderful walk and an amazing view. Up the windy road from the city only a mile or two, it feels like you are in a different world. Go most of the way around the reservoir (can't make a full circle) or just...More

Only went here as our teenage son wanted to see the FaZe house where professional gamers live. It is right next to the reservoir. Glad he made us make the trip. This is a hidden gem. We were the only ones there mid week but...More

Really enjoyed this hike today. It's about 2.0 miles, no cars to contend with, and lots of scenery to enjoy and reflect on. No hills, so perfect for all ages and abilities.

We really like this walk. In the fall & winter it's pleasant any time of day, in hot weather you'd best avoid the high sun times. Great exercise, pleasant environment, you can push a baby stroller here, it's never crowded, the reservoir is behind a...More

Historic Hollywood reservoir is fantastic for a walk. Need private transport to get you there, but it's a terrific hiking venue. No facilities, so take sustenance and water.

We visited as a part of our Hollywood tour to view the sign. The unexpected benefit was a wonderful overlook of this oasis. While I had seen the sign from many different areas, there was no way I would have ever know about this location....More
