Park on Vermont Ave. just north of Los Feliz Blvd. (exit 141A off the I-5). Head east on Los Feliz Blvd. and north up the second side street, unmarked, which is Berendo St. Berendo ends one block up at the Los Feliz Heights Steps, marked with a placard, on your left. The stairs will lead you to Bonvue Ave. Follow Bonvue uphill to the next set of stairs distinguishable from the street by the tile mosaic of orange trees along its south-facing wall. After this set of about 300 steps, briefly interrupted by a cul-de-sac, head uphill on Glendower Ave. veering right at the fork. Wind up and back down the hill, pass the Ennis House on your right, take a left at the intersection with Bonvue Ave. to continue downhill on Glendower. Turn right on Vermont and head south several blocks. Take a right on Hollywood Blvd. from Vermont, and head one block east onto Barnsdall Art Park where you’ll take a short jog up Olive Hill on an unmarked concrete staircase to Hollyhock House. Dog-friendly, except for the Hollyhock House tour.
