  • Beautiful, quiet wilderness in the dead center of the third largest city in the US. Amazing. Leash free dog park is why I go but i notice a lot of people working out and hiking here. The trails are not difficult (no hand holds required) but are steep and perilous. Fantastic views of Los Angeles and Hollywood on a clear day all the way out to Catalina Is
  • This Park is Epic with something for everyone. Kids and Sun Tanners have a grassy spot. Dogs have areas where they can run and fetch. The hikes are amazing (some very steep and difficult) that reward you with amazing views. You feel like you're outside of Los Angeles Metro when you visit this park. It's only when you see gorgeous panoramic views of the skyline that you're reminded you're in a huge city.
  • Great hike, moderate difficulty. Always very busy and lots of people watching. Cool views of LA when you reach the top. Pet friendly, lots of off leash dogs.
  • The scene is beautiful but parking is horrible. I am a tourist and there was no parking in the vacant lot because it was full. People were parking long the side of the road leading to the canyon. I saw everyone was doing the same so I parked. Came back 15 later I received a ticket for 95 dollars. apparently there were signs and between those signs you can park also depending on where the arrows are pointing too and I was just outside of that. Very confusing if you are a tourist not for california. You cannot get there either by public transportation. Too far. My advice wait until there is parking in the lot which will be a while and don't risk parking your car on the side of the road because the signs are to confusing. You have been warned.
  • Great place to go for a hike, with 3 main trails to choose from depending on your level of fitness. Parking however... That's a whole different challenge. Oh and watch out for dog poop, not everyone picks up after their dogs. Lots of dogs too.
