I took the almost 2 hour hike, but stopped short of the Hollywood sign, instead turned where the trail led to the Observatory. Then circled around and the vistas opened up revealing the wonders of... more »
Being a VIP for a day, feeling like a world-renowned actor or actress and imagining yourself in a movie set. you can be all this when you're in front of the most famous sign in the world. Hollywood is synonymous with success, so if you feel yourself a person who contributes to it, you deserve a picture with the sign. To get there there are endless ways, transport and rented vehicles are not lacking. arm yourself with patience and natural water if you are exposed to the sun. you will need it.
Great place to view the Hollywood sign. There is effectively no place to park, street parking is almost nonexistent, the streets are very narrow and if you are lucky enough to find a place you'll probably end up pissing off a local resident. Once there you can walk up the service road all the way to the top, great views of LA.
Hollywood sign is a great adventure to get to if you want close up pictures. There is a YouTube video that shows you the best way to get to the sign and it’s very informative. I advise to go early morning so you get as many solo shots as you want. Bcuz after during the day it will be crowded with tourist.
Fun walk,but make sure you take enough water with you and keep in mind this is a long walk with not to many spot to stop and refresh. It will take the whole day,keep that in mind! If you bring dogs with you,make sure you bring enough water for them too,and keep them on the leash. When you get to the sign,it feels rewarding,the walk back down is not nearly as bad.
You have to check out the Hollywood sign when you're in LA. There are several places you can get great views or pics. There is a hike to a view point, you can also get a great view from Hollywood Blvd near the 101 fwy. There is also a hike that starts st the observatory. Remember in the summer to bring water if toy are hiking.
