Definitely go hiking here to get the closest and clearest view of the Hollywood sign. You can either go around the reservoir or go uphill (I went uphill). The path starts off quiet lonely with not enough traffic and rails, separating view of the reservoir, but as you start ascending the hill, the view is worth it. You reach a gate and have to take right on Lake Tahoe Dr and then left uphill following the Hollywood sign. You will eventually reach a dirt road but you keep going, keep following the sign and you will get your closest, best view. Great place to take pictures. No proper placed to sit down and relax/picnic, except for may be shades of trees on the dirt road. Total hike from where uber dropped me off to the sign is about 4.5 miles. Totally worth it.

Great place to bike or walk. Not a lot to do other then that. Great views of the Hollywood sign and downtown LA if you're in the right spot. Several restrooms located along the trail as well

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 quiet nature. Loved it!

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 a short walk across the dam. Either way, it's well worth your time. It's even free! What's not to like? Great for solo walkers, photographers, couples or families. We saw all of these on our time there. At the entrance, there is a porta-potty and none other on the site.

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 apparently gets crowded with 2000+ people in weekend. The was the closest and clearest view of the Hollywood sign (much closer than Griffith) and a relax hiking destination. Super friendly ranger just happened to be on hand and was full of info. He pointed out some celebrity houses, explained history of the reservoir and some quirky stories, like when it was closed so that President Clinton could jog the trails.
