Thank you TripAdvisor friends. Your tips led us to the best view of the sign!! It was fun driving through the hills of Hollywood. We didn't have to hike and didn't want to.

No big deal.. It kinda in the middle of a neighborhood so it's a pain.. Narrow streets and lots of traffic.. Not a must do! Put it on the back burner..

We were able to get really close to the sign using the address we found on this website: http://www.pachd.com/free-images/hollywood-sign.html. Driving through the neighborhoods in the hills (instead of coming back the way we came, we continued up the hill and set the GPS to take us down to Hollowood Blvd) was a delight. The roads are very narrow at some... More

It's a world famous icon, so it's worth a look...but it's just a sign. Take photos from different angles and then move on. There's more exciting things to see here.

My wife and I recently hiked up to the Hollywood Sign from the west and it was amazing. Be warned the trail from the west is considered the toughest trail to get there but the shortest. The trail starts with a short hike thru a private neighborhood and then up the a mountain that overlooks universal city and a reservoir.... More

The sign that is so famous I bet they know about in space. Can be seen from just about anywhere in LA. Big white letters. Great reference point. Great to see it in the flesh. If you can get there, do it.

I did this hike with my daughter on a hot day. Definitely glad I brought a bottle of water with me! The climb was not that easy, but the views are outstanding. You can't actually get close enough to touch the sign, but you can get close enough to enjoy the view.

It is hard to get to. We were told by our tour guide in 2007 that people are not allowed to get too close to the sign because of the people who jumped off the sign in the past. My tour bus drove through a residential neighborhood to get close to the sign. I also got a view of it... More

We are a family of 4 (parents and two teens) - everyone loved this hike. We took the 6.5 mile Canyon Blvd hike, which takes in the Batman cave from the 60s show. There is a link from the official Hollywood Sign website which gives great directions. On this route we hiked up to behind the sign (I think this... More
