We’ll continue North down from Dante’s Peak along the back of the park to get to a road that will give us a nice view of the Hollywood Sign from afar. We’ll finish off with one last up hill back to the parking lot.

MY FRIEND SAID I CAN DO THIS HIKE, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT, RIGHT?
We take your safety quite seriously, and would not like for you to attend a hike you’re not ready for.  You know your body and hiking experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiker, please read our hike details page as the hike may not suite your experience level. We have a better experience if every hike has hikers of the intended level.
