This is a new route by Seth.
Starts at the Ranger Station (Same as usual with plenty of parking and bathrooms).
Heads up: a decent climb (sometimes tough) for the first 3.4 miles or so till you get to the scenic point atop Hollywood Peak. Then the route heads to the trails in the northern part of the park. There are a few more climbs along the way but for the most part very runnable.
A little “point of interest” (that is kinda neat): at approximately 8.38 miles, there’s another little climb and if you look down the valley on your left, you can see some of condors in the LA Zoo Condor Recovery Program. If they’re spreading their wings, they’re huge and won’t miss them!
He’ll mark it with a small bird symbol 😉
