A paved loop around the entire Hollywood Reservoir.

John McKinney

Overview

The trail is open 6:30-10am and 2-5pm daily, and 6:30am-7:30pm on weekends.

The portion of trail on the east side of the lake closed due to landslides in 2005 and depending on the current state of ongoing restoration efforts the trail may or may not now be open along that section.
Utilizing the Hollywood Lake Trail and Montlake Dr. this loop takes you around the Hollywood Reservoir on a path surrounded by thick vegetation.
Features: Lake — Views

Description

Beginning from the end of Lake Hollywood Dr., the run begins with the Lake Hollywood Trail as it heads south along the reservoir on a tree-covered, paved service road. After running for a little over 1 mile you'll cross over the reservoir's south side on the Mulholland Dam. From here you'll also be able to see the Hollywood Sign sitting on the hillside high above and you'll have views of downtown L.A. in the other direction.

Continue along the Lake Hollywood Trail as it winds around the east side of the reservoir. If the road undergoing repairs is passable you can follow the trail all the way to the reservoir gate on Tahoe Drive. At this point the Lake Hollywood Trail comes to an end and you can turn left here to follow Montlake Dr. to the west for 7/10 of a mile to complete the loop and reach the original trailhead.
