There 's a lot of spots where you can see the view of downtown LA . Take a nice drive here to see the sunset. There's a hidden swing located on top of the hill near Angel's point.

The road was a little rough (BIG potholes), though some parts of the park had better roads than other parts. The overlook offers a fantastic view, though -- it's worth the ride. Just keep your eyes on the road while you're getting to the parking...More

This is a good park -- easy trail with some shady spots and good views. Like all the parks in L.A., there's lots of people walking their dogs here. There's water for dogs at the top.
