Not only is this the shortest, steepest, most rugged, and most fun route to the Hollywood sign, but this trail also takes you to one of L.A.’s most famous coniferous celebrities—the Wisdom Tree. This small pine, supposedly planted from a fast food-giveaway sapling in the 1980s and a lone survivor of a 2007 wildfire, is now home to hundreds of handwritten wishes and prayers from local hikers.
