Description

The Upper Beacon Trail begins at the northern-most edge of the 5-Points Junction and continues to the northeast. After some very gradual climbing and 2/10 of a mile of running along the ridge you'll reach the top of Beacon Hill. From here you'll have fantastic views of Elysian Park, Silverlake Reservoir, Glendale, the Los Angeles River, and downtown L.A.

Once you've enjoyed the views atop Beacon Hill you can turn around and follow the same route back to the 5-Points Junction.
