Details

The Hollywood Sign is in Griffith Park above Los Angeles.

The trail will be about 15 miles as the crow flies...

Allow for about 6 hours 'n change...

There may be sudden and frequent stops for print making along the way...

The trail has quite a bit of up hill. However, good trail or tennis shoes will be fine.

Wear a hat. Without cloud cover; there isn't much shade.

Bring about 4 quarts of water and something to chew on...

We'll stop at Mt. Hollywood where there is a nice view over looking the Griffith Observatory.

From there, we will continue on to Mt. Lee & the Hollywood Sign.

After, we will walk down the Easter Trail for prints & a full view of the sign.

From the sign vantage point; we'll go to the Bat Cave that was used in the original Batman Series.

After the Bat Cave, we will press on to the observatory for a brief visit.
