    I couldn't make it after all. At 6:30 I was stuck in the streets of Hollywood. There were police cars blocking several streets and traffic was chaotic. Hope you're having a great time at Amir Garden.

    Is this hike for beginner?

    1 · July 30, 2014

    • Lee Z.

      Yes and no. It is fairly easy to get to the steps, but the 200 plus steps are tough. If you wish you can go up the fire road and avoid the steps. Novice Beginners probably should not come.

      1 · July 30, 2014

  • Rimona

    Hi Scott. Do we carry the food with us, or do we eat whenn we return??

    July 30, 2014

      Yes....just like going to Mt. Hollywood...we take our food with us and eat at Amir's.
