Why locals recommend it
A super simple hike that’s flat and easy for everyone, but it still gives you a cool view. You can see the Hollywood sign from many spots. It’s also fun to look at the Mulholland Dam, which was built in the ’20s and has beautiful arches with all these bear heads on them. There are a lot of trees but it still gets pretty sunny, so wear your sunscreen.
