Hollywood sign hike

  • Griffith Observatory

    2800 E Observatory Ave, Los Angeles, CA (map)

    34.119293 -118.300468

  • I did this cool hike taking me to this LA treasure a year and a half ago.  So I'll be  working purely

    from memory to get to the sign and a trail map the Organizer at the time recently gave me. 



    Where: DON'T MEET AT THE Griffith Observatory-- meet at the north end of the parking lot of the griffith observatory at the George Harrison Tree. Right there you will see a street sign the says charlie turner trailhead and Mount hollywood trail.

    What to bring: Water, snack, HIKING SHOES, Hat, dress for weather, sunblock and a camera to get that great shot with the sign behind you.

    Hike Level: Advanced beginner, 4 out of 10, 

    Distance: 6 miles roundtrip, 1000 feet gain and loss, walking on trails and roads.

    Hike time: ~3 1/4 hours 

    Hike description at the time I did this activity: Ok first we will walk on roads til we get to the felix's garden trailhead. We will go up Felix's Garden trail and up to the captian's Roost. Then we will take a trail up to mount Hollywood. we will rest and enjoy the view for a minute or two. From there we will take a road for a while and past mount Taco, Mount bell, and baby bell. If the group wants a challenge we will go up the mounts. then we will take a small one man trail passing Mount chapel til we get to a road. Then we will take the road to the front of the sign

    There we will rest, take a group picture, and have our snacks.

    Then we will take easy roads back to the observatory

    Dogs ok but must be on leash at all times.

    If you bring a guest you must stay with them and are responsible for their safety

      Nikki, I'm having folks update their RSVP status so this should help accommodate people on the waiting list as long as they still want to go. Lori Bloom is recorded as the last one on the waiting list. I will not take any others. Therefore, will close any new people wanting to RSVP.

    Robert and Lori checked the train sad to report schedule doesn't workout. Maybe later in the Summer and Fall I go all the time urban hiking using public transportation, relaxing, good for environment, fun for kids well just plain fun. Guess for this trip it's the car.
