  • Beautiful park off the beaten path. You get there through lower Coldwater Canyon onto Beverly Dr, and if you keep on going you come out on mullholland and Coldwater Canyon. Huge pond to walk around. I...  more »
  • The narrow road going through that Hollywood sign and is surrounded by woods, quite a luxury residential area. It is a quiet place not so much through the many cars.

  • Good choice for those who want a bit of pastoral beauty, ideal to relax, close your eyes and forget the world for a few minutes. Easy access, clean, signaled safe.

  • Parking can be tricky. You may find spots near the entrance to some trails. However there is a huge one all the way to the north of the canyon near the school. Nice park. For hiking trails I'd recommend the lower canyon as the paths are wider and clearly marked. Better views. Upper canyon has narrow unmarked path. Careful as some path can lead to people's homes but clearly marked no trespassing. There is a road called duck/turtle pond which is in middle of the park really nice to see.
  • It's a vigorous hike up hastain trail. Views are good and on winter mornings cool breezes help refresh you on the way. It can get busy and chatty tho, so not always a place to find solitude.
  • Awesome spot to get away from the city vibe. Very peaceful and tranquil
  • Best up-and-down hike in LA, but get it while you can. Word is that the developer who owns a slice of the area has won his case to turn some of the hillsides into mega McMansions. Sign of the times.
  • The park is booby-trapped with ways to steal your money and appears to be designed for issuing traffic violations wherever possible. After reading these reviews, I thought I could avoid a ticket by stopping at stop signs fully and driving very slowly (to the point where I had several cars tailgating me). But they still dinged me on the parking lot with an $70 ticket, saying that I parked "outside a designated area", even though there were other cars parked right next to me in the same area and there were no signs delineating where the area started and stopped!!! If you think you can avoid a ticket, you are probably wrong, so if you want to visit, know that it will probably cost you at least $70 to do so. It seems to be a racket for bureaucrats to steal your money. I haven't gotten anything in the mail yet, and hope that I don't. But now I have to worry about whether the camera considered my stops "complete stops" when I was 5 feet away from the line rather than 1, or whether I hit 16 mph at one point and have to stress out over potentially owing hundreds of dollars for simply going to enjoy myself in nature. What if my bumper is ahead of the line by 1 foot? How about 1 inch? 1 millimeter? If my car was registered with an address in the rich part of town, would I still have to pay? One has to wonder about the answer to that question because this ticketing policy really discourages visitors -- could they be trying to get the park "to themselves"? Whether it's stupidity or corruption, it's sad that our tax money is going to something like this, rather than solving the real problems that America is facing.
