On a very hot day, we managed to find our way by foot, after parking at the top of Beachwood Drive. Although a tough climb, the views are very rewarding. Don't miss it!

For anyone growing up dreaming of making it in Hollywood-seeing the sign in person is a thrill. I never had that dream, but I have always thought everything was glitz and glamour in Hollywood. The sign can be seen from the freeway, city streets and neighborhoods. The best way to get a good view of the sign is from Griffith... More

It can be difficult to get to the best view points but it's certainly worth the effort. It's a simple photo opportunity really but one worth taking, you'd regret it if you didnt.

From a distance, the Hollywood sign is exciting for the first 3 seconds you see it. After that, it's basically just another billboard. However, if you're in good shape I definitely recommend taking the hike through Griffith Park and seeing it up close! We began at Burbank Peak to see the Wisdom Tree, and then went across to Mount Lee... More

The sign is located so far on the mountain, that you can hardly see it. No matter how close we tried to get to it, it was still very far and nothing impressive

You can view it from the tourist overlook or hike around the hill to the top and see behind the sign. I hiked this area every day while I stayed and it's a nice iconic piece of history not everyone is fortunate to see.

We drove up the the hill through a residential area and ended up at a little vista point area where we were able to see the valley and the Hollywood sign. Everyone there was trying to get their photo with the sign in the background. We enjoyed seeing the sign and best of all it was free!!!

You came to LA. You've got to to it! The easy trails are well maintained. It will be crowed, probably hot. There will be a long wait at the only restroom. Parking is lousy. You won't get close enough to sit in the sign, but the other selfies you record on the way up will be special memories.
