There are a few ways to make your way to the iconic Hollywood Sign in Griffith Park, but the most pleasant trail is Hollyridge Trail, which rounds out at 3.5 miles and climbs about 750 feet of elevation. The wide dirt trail offers views of the Hollywood sign long before you reach it, foreshadowing the important destination. As you near the summit, the road will change to pavement and you’ll see views of the Verdugo and San Gabriel Mountain ranges. Once atop Mount Lee, you’ll see the Hollywood sign from behind, and gaze upon lovely views of the city. Any visit to Los Angeles, especially from out of town or state, must include a visit to the Hollywood sign.
When you’re staying in Hollywood consider a stay at the fine Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. This elegant boutique hotel offers luxurious amenities and is close to all the popular attractions and restaurants. Be sure to drive an equally luxurious vehicle when tooling around the city like a SLK250 Roadster from Mercedes-Benz of Encino.
