Hike Hollywood sign without a car?

I was wondering if it's possible to get to the trail head for the hike behind the Hollywood sign without a car? I'm staying in Hollywood and really want to do it.

Be careful if you are there after dark.

You can get kind of close by public transit but you'll still have a 15 minute walk from the place the bus drops you to the trailhead. The bus you'll be taking is the DASH BEACHWOOD which is not part of the standard Metro Bus/Metro Rail system so if you have a 'DAY PASS' on the Metro system, it isn't good on the DASH. But the fare on the DASH is only 50-cents so no worries. Here's the route of the DASH assuming a departure time of 8:09 a.m. It runs very often, though but check the schedule to be sure:

From: VINE ST/HOLLYWOOD BLVD NE corner Lv: 08:09AM

To: BEACHWOOD DR/WESTSHIRE DR SE corner Ar: 08:17AM

Pay $0.50

From the corner of Beachwood and Westshire, continue walking north on Beachwood Canyon Bl to the end of the road. Here's a map: http://mapq.st/1kF2Kz7 (The bus stop is at point "A" at the bottom of the map and the trailhead is at point "B" at the top.

Have fun. (Bring lots of water, wear a light-colored cap and sunglasses).

That's just Harvey. He won't bite. Besides, he only feeds at night and you'll only be hiking during the day.
