Faith will lead this flat, easy 3.2 mile loop hike around scenic Lake Hollywood. Flanked by a classic California mix of oak, pine, eucalyptus, agave and sage trees, and circled by a paved pedestrian trail, this is one of the city’s great mountain walking spots which also includes views of the Hollywood sign. For more information, check out this article from the Los Angeles times: articles.latimes.com/2013/may/25
Bring water and snacks. Sorry NO DOGS are allowed on this hike. Rain within 24 hours prior to hike cancels.
