HIKING TO THE SIGN
Your Hollywood trip won’t be complete without a hike up to the iconic sign itself. Griffith Park offers visitors winding, nature hiking trails along with an unbeatable view of the City of Angels down below. Set out early in the morning to beat the heat as we get into the summer months and choose from multiple trails with varying intensity levels. For shorter hikes, choose Hollyridge and Burbank Peak at around 3.5 miles each. Making an afternoon of it? Go the longer route with Brush Canyon Trail or via Innsdale Drive. While you’re unauthorized to get up directly next to the sign—not to mention it's incredibly steep—these trails still serve incredible sights at different angles of the sign. At the end of the hike, you can look out over a warm, breezy vista, take in the cityscape, and on an especially clear day, look out onto the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean.
