Cool urban peak
Lots of people up here on a misty spring weekend. Great view of the Hollywood sign, marginally so for everything else. Have always wanted to go back for clearer views... judging from comments here, seems like that'd be right after a rain.
Quick evening stroll thru Griffith Park, tagging this on the way to watch a nice sunset. With Nicole and Mike.
Ran up easy before some intervals around the observatory and then went over and hammered out Cahuenga and Mt Lee up to the HOLLYWOOD sign.
with Cahuenga and Lee
I took the trail from the Griffith Observatory. It was a hot day! I enjoyed the views of the cities down below.
Up from Fern Dell Drive to the observatory and then on up to the summit. Nice pleasant hike with my favorite companion. Views were mostly good this nice spring morning.
Hiked with Caren, Andrea, and my youngest niece, Hanna. From the observatory after climbing up a steep use trail and hopping the fence from the Fern Dale parking lot. Found the correct route on the return.
Mid-week workout: took Hollyridge trail to Mulholland, then went over Chapel and Bell before finishing in the dark on Hollywood. Spectacular views of city lights. Ran back down.
Zipped up to the top from the Observatory. Great view of the smog. The mountains are really beautiful, it's just too bad they are shrouded in such a thick haze.
Nice day this time of year.
Hiked in the afternoon after morning rains which made for an exceptionally clear view and few people. Who knew LA could be beautiful???
I used to live near the Rose Bowl, but never took the time to hike this mountain. Well finally, we flew into Orange County and drove up to the Observatory. We hiked the road up to the top and then took the steep trail down. Lots of people and of course great views of downtown LA.
Did the Tourist Walk up to get the Hollywood picture
Made Ryan go on this hike with me to tag a few LPC peaks on our way home. He admitted afterwards it was good fun. Trip Report
Was looking to kill some time while in LA, also traversed over to Mt. Lee and Cahuenga Peak. http://www.willhiteweb.com/california_climbing/los_angeles/mount_lee_hollywood_sign_054.htm
Love to run to from travel town to the observatory and back.
This is a great hike! It was a short one, I ran up most of the way, but the views on the way up and at the top were amazing. Felt like I was flying over LA in a blimp
I remember liking this hike a lot at the time. This is one urban hike you do not want to miss if you live around here or are from out of town. Who would want to miss the iconic Hollywood sign anyhow?!?...lol
