This trail is worth getting to if you live nearby and don't have time to travel to a better single track. Seems a surprising place to find a fun little single track. Has interesting elements and nice scenery changes that keeps your interest in spots that are not as challenging. Mostly an easy relaxing single track with a few little kinks that get your attention. The scenery is beautiful and a little over grown inspots which makes it more fun to keep track of the trail. Lots of hikers and dogs so be careful and courteous so they don't throw us out. Probably quieter during the week days and safer too. Its nice and shaded so its a great escape when everywhere else is hot in the summer time. There are a few creekbed crossings, rope swings, views of houses, and a few moments that you forget you are in the middle of tons of homes. Overall a nice experience if you are not looking for a huge challenge that day.

Take Laurel canyon to Mulholland and go west on Mulholland, go about 1/2-3/4 mile and there will be a turn out/parking lot called Fryman Overlook--that will be on your right. Park there. Trail starts at the fire road gate. If you are not sure what you are doing, almost every hiker there knows these trails and seem happy to recommend routes and give advice. Go down the fire road and with in about 50 to 100 feet turn left and start going down the single track--just keep staying left as you descend and when you get to Deering cul de sac make another left and go about 50 feet to the fire road which leads to the Home of the Tree People. This trail continues up for a little while and if you continue it leads to Fryman Rd. At that point we turned around and went back the way we came. But I was told by other hikers that you can keep going and that the trails go forever.

Dead Man's Trail? It's called the Betty B. Dearing trail and it already has it's own post. The directions above are all wrong too.
