During every visit to Los Angeles, you can't miss seeing the Hollywood sign. That is, of course, unless there is too much smog. LOL
Honestly, it is one of the most iconic signs in the world. We had heard of a lot of people taking the "hike" to the top of the mountain, and had always hoped to do it someday. We had the opportunity to visit Los Angeles recently, and we decided that since the weather was good, it was time to "take a hike"!
Where do you start?
There are several places people start the hike. Probably the best and easiest place to start the hike is at:
6000 Mulholland Hwy, Los Angeles, CA. Look for this sign and this door.
Entering here, you will have access to the public hiking path up the mountain. There are small green signs that guide you to where you are going - just keep an eye on them to ensure that you are headed the right direction. It's easy to get lost and go on the wrong path.
Along the route, you are able to get some great pictures of the sign - the views are amazing!
If you go, be sure to bring water (it's a long walk) and wear comfortable shoes. It was definitely an experience that we'll remember.
