I wanted to see the Hollywood sign and read that this would be a good place to go to see it - we headed there after dinner on May 13th - what a nightmare - the traffic was HORRIBLE and the people directing traffic seemed to have no control or idea what they were doing . . . there was... More

We were taken here by our driver on our LA Tour for a phot opportunity - it is a good spot to take pictures of the Hollywood sign. We went into the observatory and spent more time than we ever anticipated. You could easily spend half a day here. You do not have to be into astrology at all, it's... More

We had a great hike up from adjacent the Greek Theatre to high up in Griffith Park. The hike was challenging, but the views over LA and the Valley were fantastic. There is plenty of parking and restrooms at the bottom. A great walk.

I hiked for about 10km up and down to the Hollywood sign. Well i didn't actually get all the way to the sign, i decided the beautiful view and the great nature around me was just worth more than 9 giant white letters.

The trails are steep and long. These trails are for hikers. They are dirt trails over hills. At the start of the trail they have nice bathrooms. No food or drinks near by you have to go back toward the residential neighborhood. Not very much parking and in some places you have to pay the meter for 4 hrs.
