The routes below are ranked from easy to difficult. The Mt Hollywood Trail, the Brush Canyon Trail, and the Cahuenga Peak Trail offer choices for intrepid seekers, stragglers, dreamers, beginners, children, and the moderately well-conditioned.

Authorized hiking trails are open the same hours as Griffith Park, from Sunrise to Sunset, 365 days a year.  While enjoying hiking, please stay on authorized trails. Please beware of the extreme fire danger on the trails, parts of which are still recovering after a devastating wildfire in 2007. Trespassing is illegal. A LAPD officer is stationed near the Sign, which is protected by a fence and security cameras 24/7.
