What's more iconic in Hollywood than the Hollywood sign? Not even Oscar himself.
So let's go on a hike to the Hollywood sign, and as an added bonus we'll stop by the Bronson Caves, better known as the "Bat Caves" where the Batmobile is often seen racing out of in the 1960's TV show.
Keep in mind that while we'll be pretty close to the sign, it is fenced off, and surveilled by cameras so trespass at your own risk. The caves, however, are wide open and we'll be able to walk through them and explore to your hearts content.
Distance: 6.5 miles, round trip
Elevation Gain: 1098 feet
While this is considered a moderate hike, be advised that the hike up to the sign is on a consistent, mild incline. So while it doesn't seem bad at first, it will tire you quite a bit as we continue up. Be prepared to sweat. The trail is also mostly without shade so prepare yourself, dress appropriately and bring sun screen.
The forecast calls for weather in the mid 70's this Saturday so make sure you bring plenty of water.
Bring snacks to get you through the hike and some cash so we can grab some lunch and a celebratory cold beverage or two afterwards.
