Hollywood Cemetery Hightower Road Section (w/ Jewish burial area)

This section is located west of the intersection of Hightower and Hollywood Roads. The main entry point is a barely visible road from Hightower, near the top of the Tiered Section. This area is the least populated in Hollywood Cemetery

I used a 1938 aerial photo to make my trail map, shown below superimposed on a newer photo. The circular trail in the center indicates the top of the hill. I have walked all the trails indicated by the red lines; most are rough and overgrown, but can be identified in the winter months.

The yellow letters are the general areas identified in the directory of burials. The letters are loosely grouped in relation to the trails. I have not found any marked graves in the circle at the top of the hill.

This entire area is hilly and overgrown, and a thick carpet of leaves or English ivy hides debris, holes, rocks, fallen limbs, and other things that can do you harm. Several retaining walls and plot walls have collapsed. Be careful.

Two areas, M and N, are heavily thicketed and almost impassable.
