    Hiking up to Cahuenga Peak via the Burbank Peak Trail is a quick and easy adventure that reveals some beautifully scenic views of the Los Angeles cityscape.

    Route Description for Cahuenga Peak via Burbank Peak Trail

    If you’ve already experienced the iconic Hollywood Sign and want a shorter hiking route in the hills surrounding L.A., then the Cahuenga Peak via Burbank Peak Trail is a great option to explore. Here, you will be able to make your way up to the Wisdom Tree, a lone pine that served atop Burbank Peak during a devastating fire in 2009.

    Setting out from the trailhead, you will make your way to the northeast along Wonder View Drive for a short distance, keeping right to continue along a trail leading up to Burbanks Peak. After taking in the scenic views from beside the Wisdom Tree, you will continue on to the northeast.

    Here, you will quickly arrive at the summit of Cahuenga Peak, where you can take in some even more incredible views overlooking Los Angeles. A short walk further to the east will also bring you to the iconic Hollywood Sign if you wish to visit it. After taking in the views, simply backtrack along the same trail to return to your starting point.
