Fitness Trainer Terri West will lead this moderate hike through Fryman Canyon, a short, 3.3 mile loop in Studio City. Centrally located, with easy access from Hollywood and Studio City, the Fryman Canyon trail is on a fire road with plenty of spur trails to vista points and benches, and access to the Tree Peoples’ Coldwater Canyon pavilion. While it is an urban trail, it’s not too crowded on the trail.
– Distance: Just under 3.5 miles.
– Elevation Gain: 463 feet
– Time: An easy 90 minutes.
– Trail Condition: Excellent. Well-maintained fire road for the majority of the trail, with clear signs and landmarks. The use-trails that parallel the fire road are not marked or maintained, but are heavily traveled and easy to spot.
Bring water, snacks.
Dogs on leash are welcome.
Rain cancels (within 24 hours of event cancels).
Directions: From the Valley, head south on Laurel Canyon Blvd. from Studio City. 0.8 miles south of Ventura Blvd., turn right onto Fryman Road. The parking area is immediately visible. From the south, at Laurel Canyon (Crescent Heights) and Sunset in West Hollywood, head north on Laurel Canyon. Take a left onto Fryman Road and park in the lot.
Parking is $3 to $5. An unattended Iron Ranger is available to pay for parking but I’m not sure if it’s been updated to accept credit/debit cards. Cash and check are options.
