I had to come back to one of my favorite trails for a quick hike on National Trails Day [6.6.15] — the Wisdom Tree in Hollywood. I do this one so much so I am not going to do a full write up. From the car (I was in the first spot) to the tree, it took me 22 mins to hike the 0.92 miles. Elevation gain: 538 ft. I only hiked to the tree and back down; I did not go to Cahuenga Peak or the Hollywood sign this time, but I did get to climb up the tree this time since it was fairly empty up there… and got sap all over my legs. -_-

Was the elevation gradual or a steep incline? ?
Hi Glen, the trails gains mostly in the first part of the trail which goes straight up to the tree. The entire trail is about 3 miles (there and back) but to just the tree is about three quarters of a mile and gains about 600 ft or so. You basically climb straight up to the tree and the trail to the hollywood sign is the easy flat part.
What time of day did you go? Ah so from a rating of 1 to 10 how would you rate it? How many times have you done it?
Glad you got out for national trails day!
