Hollywood Steps Circuit

Hollywood, California, United States
Hiking | 1.8 miles (4.4 miles away)
There are six sets of granite steps in Beachwood Canyon, below the Hollywood Sign. These historic landmarks were built in the 1920's when Hollywoodland was created, and they link high streets and low streets in the hills. This trail links them all together for a good cardio workout that takes about an hour. Go in the morning or evening to avoid the heat!

I went to this famous trail with two other friends. I was told that there might be celebrity sightings. Well, we did see quite a few good looking men and women, but no famous faces.

The last quarter mile, we came down to the mountain. The...
