The Hollyridge Trail, perched on top of a hill at the end of Beachwood Canyon, has been a popular destination for Angelinos and tourists for many years. Throughout the ages, thousands have made the pilgramage to this iconic site, to soak up the rich history and culture of the sprawling suberb. Unfortunately, the city of Los Angeles has declared to close down the Hollyridge Trail, which will come into effect on April 18th, 2017.
Why is it Closing?
Sunset Ranch Hollywood Stables, a horse ranch in Beachwood Canyon, has sued the city of Los Angeles for impeding, and blocking access to their stables. Hikers must pass through a gate and hike onto the stable's driveway in order to access the Hollyridge Trail. Due to the constant blockade of the driveway caused by hikers and tourists, the Los Angeles Superior Court judge ordered the city to refrain from "precluding ingress or egress of vehicles relating to Sunset Ranch."
Though for now, the trail is scheduled to close, there are other ways to access the sign. Read about alternative routes here.
