I could see it from several places including the third floor of the Hollywood and Highland Centre, some side streets off Hollywood Blvd and from the hop on hop off bus.

My 13 year old from Seattle thought it was amazing. Good location to see it is from the open air mall near the Dolby Theater.

We parked on Beachwood Drive and hiked up. Beware, there are parking restrictions in place so you need to park and walk. It took us around an hour, along with the rest of the world to summit. Great views. Great photo opps. A world of selfies going on at the top. It's popular. Recommended!

Hollywood sign is located at Hollywood hills, need Burbank. It is not accessible to the public, although you can get fairly close if you drive around and know your way or if you take a hike. It doesn't have any touristic facility on site, so appart from a good spot for taking a background picture, there is nothing else to... More

My wife and I started out hiking for the Hollywood sign but got a little lost and ended up at the observatory. It did not appear to us that you can hike all the way to the sign. You can get close, but not actually get to the sign. There are lots of trails and the views are spectacular!

Every year of the last three, when I visited LA I never neglected to hike at the Hollywood Sign.From the beginning, I wanted to reach the top of the hill, but I failed the first two tries because I couldn't find the right way. But the third try had success! The view was perfect!

We got over a hill, close by some houses on a road we think we didn't have permission to be anyway. However, the view was worth it!! We were so close to the sign, the pictures went just perfect!

I'm not one to do touristy things when traveling ... but this is something I couldn't resist! And I'm glad I didn't! Have fun on the trails! Take your time! Say hi to other hikers! Take pictures and help others take pictures of their group! Totally worth it!! The views are breathtaking! If you are from the east coast, like... More

If you're prepared for 3.5 miles up, do it!!! I found directions for parking on the internet. Bring water and go to the bathroom before arriving. Watch out for horse poop along the way. It's kind of cool because as we drive through LA, we can now say we were up above the sign!!

Winding single width road to get there with beautiful views. Definitely a nice view and a good picture taking spot.
