Owner description: Perched atop Mount Lee, this global symbol of Hollywood glamour measures 450 feet in length with mammoth white letters, each standing 45 feet high, spelling out the name of the city. There is no access to The Hollywood Sign as it sits on restricted property however; there are several scenic view points which provide great photo opportunities . 1) Hollywood and Highland. Farther away but easy , especially if you are already in Hollywood. 2) The Griffith Observatory. Take the Metro Red Line at Hollywood and Highland to the Griffith Observatory stop. From here board the DASH Observatory shuttle operating 7 days a week ( beginning 3/21/17) to the front lawn of The Griffith Observatory for views of The Hollywood Sign. 3) The Sign is best viewed from the interior of Griffith Park. Trail signs will guide you to these sites. Please stay on the designated trails and enjoy the great views of The Hollywood Sign !

You've seen it in movies so why not experience the real thing. We drove up Mulholland Drive and stopped along the way and took a great photo. We hear you cannot get very close as you could in the past. Can't be missed. You can see the sign from many areas in LA, like Dodger Stadium. We took our photo right near Ron Howards home. Was really cool.

This is something most of us have seen all of our lives in movies etc. We were to driven up on Mullholland Dr to view the sign. Our driver stopped just below where Wilt Chamberlain used to live to take the picture. I liked it!

This is nice to see live, from the streets below in Hollywood you'll find a lot of spots from streets to take a good picture. There is also a hike trail starting at a parking lot at the end of N Beachwood Drv, which brings you in 30mins or so to the top and behind the sign. Make sure your camera can do panorama pics to get all on the foto. It's worth but was totally crowded on saturday morning at 10am.

This is a great hike, it's not that it's challenging but it definitely gives you a different and unique view during your hike or run. Come in comfortable clothes. If you can go during "business hours" it wont be as packed as it is after 5pm

Our tour driver made a stop for us near the Hollywood sign during our day trip around LA which included Hollywood and Beverley Hills.

We took a couple of snaps and added our name to those who have already visited LA and the Hollywood sign.

Normally see this on the TV screen and so it made a bit of change seeing it in person.
