Rainforest Trail @ Studio City

Start the New Years on the right path. Make a New Year's resolution with nature and us and you may be healthier and wiser with other like minded people. 

Yes, there is a trail and place called the rainforest hidden in the hills of Studio city. A place of high canopy trees, a running stream, and sounds of tranquility from the birds. One of several trails in the park, this trail boasts a spectacular view of the valley at the top. Along the way, you will encounter an abandoned car and cross several streams. Its a semi-moderate hike of 6 miles and 800 ft gain with a good amount of tree shade.

Rain postpones. Wilacre Park is located on the NW corner of Laurel Canyon and Fryman in Studio city. 3431 Fryman Rd Studio City, CA 91604. We will meet at the fire-road gate at 1PM. Bring water, sunscreen, and a snack.

The park has a limited amount of parking and it is for $5. Sometimes parking is free. I suggest free parking in the neighborhood on Laurel Terrace/ Sunshine Terrace  just North of Fryman on Laurel Cyn. (Next street light over) The neighborhood on Fryman has no parking. If your unsure about directions please use mapquest or googlemaps. Its only about a 3 block walk but isnt that why your coming?

 Rain or severe catastrophes cancel

    It was fun being part a big group and to start out the new year outdoors and traverse the Studio City hills. Hiking a mostly secluded trail that connects Wilacre to Mulholland Drive was awesome.

      True. But now I feel like catching up on chores that I missed due to holidays, family, and work. The rainforest trail is a really good one and there are at least 3 abandoned cars if you keep your eyes open. Enjoy!

  • Styllista S.

    Wow 69 people would be there....

    6 miles with 800 ft of elevation. I'd say the difficulty is moderately easy. However, given your shoulder problem I'd advise not to hike this. There is some crouching involved and steep dips and inclines.

    • Bay

      Ok. Will you do another event As such another time soon ?

      December 29, 2013

    • Regan

      I am sure there are other hikes, but it won't happen at this particular location for sometime.

      Sorry. I do not recommend bringing a dog on the hike.
