You cant actually get close to this sign so don't be fooled by the tours that say they do. Closest you get is about 1km away on another hill

I think we were one of the last groups that could access the sign from Griffith Park.It is becoming a liability and they are closing access. It is one of the most iconic parts of America. The sheer number of tourists from anywhere and everywhere that want to see it gives one pause at our country's place in the world.... More

Well, we planned our day to do easy hike to the Hollywood sign. The easiest and the fastest way is from beachwood drive address 3400 N Beachwood drive, 90068 it goes through the Sunset ranch where you can take a horse and go on a horse ride as well. The hike to the sign is easy and about 3.5 miles... More

The Hollywood Sign is an icon and it was cool to finally see it in real life!! We went to the observatory to view it - there are probably better views and if we had had more time in town, we may have done some of the hikes nearby.

Well not knowing the area we parked by the observatory and started walking, you cant get to the sign that way, well you can but its a LONG way........... Research on Google first as there is a youtube video on how to get to the sign using the local roads because the locals dont want you to get there through... More

Bronson Park is a great park for kids and the hiking trails above it are great. There's also the "bat cave" which is really cool, and has a view of the Hollywood sign in the distance... BUT for those trying to get cose to the sign, it is a 5.4 mile round trip from the parking lot. It was nice,... More

I would not recommend this to many people. If you are looking for an incredible view, I would go to a good vantage point for viewing so that you can also look out upon the city. However, seeing the sign itself is good enough from ground level.

There are several great places to view the Hollywood sign. We especially liked seeing it from Griffith Observatory and Hollywood Blvd.

It's one thing to see it in movies, but a whole other thing to be up close... It's so "Hollywood".....you really feel like you've arrived!

You can't go to Los Angeles and not hike up to the Hollywood sign! A little tough for elderly, but doable. Make sure to follow signs where you can and cannot go. Police will ticket you!
