  • Great place to hike, walk, relax. Breathtaking views! Adjacent to the city and valley, can walk or run from one to the other. Great place for an awesome time with family and friends, including young children! Imbibe in the beauty of nature. Good place for dog-walking. Cool old ruins, must have some interesting history here.
  • I did this hike by myself. It was challenging for me, but I made it to the top. The trail path is a little beaten, should be well kept since it busy all the time. I love the display as your walking into the entrance, they have snacks and water where you pay a dollar for each item. This would never exist in N.Y. I loved it. I took the wrong hike, for the Hollywood sign. I'm glad I didn't, Iran out of water and headed down. Definitely worth it.
