    Must see in LA

    Take the Hollyridge trail to the top and survey Los Angeles from above the the immense, multi-story HOLLYWOOD letters. Consider how strange and wonderful this city is.

    Ok this is just something you have to do once in your life. It took about 45 minutes to hike up to this fuckin thing. Bring water.

    While you cannot get close enough to touch the sign, you can still get pretty close – hike the Hollyridge Trail to see the sign from above, and if the weather is clear the views are amazing.

    The best way to see the Hollywood Sign is to hike to it.

    Few people know that after an ill-advised experiment involving a jetpack, I had to replace the "y" in "Hollywood." You will likely be unable to verify this information. Like I said, few people know.

  • Van N.

    Taking a picture with Hollywood sign is a must do in LA. The best place to take a picture with hollywood sign is Canyon Lake Dr. That's the closest location you can get to the sign by car.

    Haunted by the ghost of Peg Entwistle, a young starlet who leaped to her death from the top of the H on September 16, 1932.

    To reach there and get a good view for photo let your GPS go to " sunset ranch hollywood"

    Seems that it's impossible to get on Mt Lee Dr by car. Tried several roads but every time was barred with a barrier. So be ready to hike at some point ;)

    While the sign’s grounds are barred from public access, you can still get great angles for photos. From Franklin go N on Beachwood; turn L at Ledgewood. Right at the 3-way intersection onto Deronda.

    Don't hike after sunset. You will probably get lost on the trails. If you do get lost don't panic, just trying find a trail that goes down the canyon.

    If you want to go behind the Hollywood sign make a hard left at the first fork in the road and then make a right at the next fork.

    Be sure to visit the "W"! It's one of the best letters to see there!!!

    This is probably not the correct 'Hollywood Sign' check-in...but let's change that. Enjoy.

    Film crews often up here (this photo Gary Hayes took during a California Tourism ad). Ignore "road closed" signs (public access) & have a sticky beak as LA goes about making magic under the sign!

    There is a trail that leads to the back of sign. See online

    Located near the offices of the consulting producer on our Vietnam war-era movie FREEDOM DEAL, which we just wrapped in Cambodia, the Hollywood sign is a must see - be respectful of neighbors though! Read more

    The Hollywood Sign, for me, is a steady reminder that I live in a city full of magic and possibility. There’s something thrilling about seeing its bright white letters pop out from the foothills. Read more · August 20, 2012

    Bring sunscreen! Also print out a map to help guide you to the front or the back of the sign. The trails are not marked in this area.

    Angelenos love a good hike, so why not one with a timeless photo op! Important note: climbing on the sign itself is illegal. So enjoy the great outdoors, take some photos but stay out of trouble.
