Overview

Perched atop Mount Lee, this global symbol of Hollywood glamour measures 450 feet in length with mammoth white letters, each standing 45 feet high, spelling out the name of the city. There is no access to The Hollywood Sign as it sits on restricted property however; there are several scenic view points which provide great photo opportunities . 1) Hollywood and Highland. Farther away but easy , especially if you are already in Hollywood. 2) The Griffith Observatory. Take the Metro Red Line at Hollywood and Highland to the Griffith Observatory stop. From here board the DASH Observatory shuttle operating 7 days a week ( beginning 3/21/17) to the front lawn of The Griffith Observatory for views of The Hollywood Sign. 3) The Sign is best viewed from the interior of Griffith Park. Trail signs will guide you to these sites. Please stay on the designated trails and enjoy the great views of The Hollywood Sign !

We went on a Monday, and the observatory was closed which means there was no place to park except down a long winding road that you pay $8 for on the roadside only to take a long trek back uphill. If you cannot park close...More

Just wanted to advise that the closest way to get to the sign on a car is to drive to the Lake Hollywood Park. There is parking on both sides of the road and the view is great for the picture opportunity. Remember, there is...More

Of course if you go to Cali you must go see the sign. We drove on our own to the Hollywood sign. Driving to the sign is a bit of a zig zag drive. We went just a little before sunset where it’s not to...More

I visited the Griffith Observatory with some friends I made from a G Adventures tours. The view of the Hollywood sign is very good from the Griffith Observatory. However it is smaller than it appears in media. What fun to actually see it!

The Hollywood sign is beloved by Los Angeleans - it is pure silly fun. Glorious! Go to the Griffith Park Observatory, either walking up the road there or driving. From the top you can gaze at the Hollywood sign to your heart's content.

It is much smaller than it is portrayed. You can only see it from a distance. Hollywood is dirty with lots of closed shops and vagrants.

We saw the sign twice during our trip. Once from Hollywood and Highland - although very far off in the distance and second from Griffiths Observatiry. Much better view! Must see if you visit Hollywood!

Ask the locals how to go really up close. There's a little street between private villas that really takes you there. It's amazing.

From Madame Tussauds at Hollywood/ Highland. Go up the external stairs, perhaps you will be allowed to get to Level 5.

Hi, sorry for the late reply, Well, I don't think it's possible to get to the sign without the hike. The option I did was to park the car down the mountain and then on foot up to the sign. It's a 40min hike up and it's nice... More
