Explore the Lake Hollywood Trail

Lake Hollywood Trail

The Lake Hollywood Trail is a scenic loop just outside of LA that is perfect for runners, walkers, cyclists, and those from all skill levels.

The Lake Hollywood Trail features beautiful wildflowers in the spring and is wheelchair accessible. A majority of the trail is paved, but approximately .6 miles is on dirt. Some of the trail is shaded, but bring sun protection regardless - especially in the summer. Dogs are not allowed on this trail.

Easy Hike

An easy, low energy hike. Would do it again just for the bridge.

Very Nice

Very nice easy hike.

Easy Chat With A Friend Hike

Who knew Hollywood had a lake?? Beautiful. Although untouchable. The ugly chain link fence kinda sucks. But the bridge and views are great. The trail is also good for kids to ride along on bikes or scooters. PS. The decorative dog heads on the dam make for a very strange highlight. Lol enjoy!
