Use google maps to access from 5 or 101. 5-10 minutes from either, beautiful local houses on the way up, tight roads, parking at the park entrances. About 3 miles around the lake, low traffic, very peaceful and quiet walk or run.

Great way to spend an afternoon near the Hollywood sign. Pleasant and easily accessible. You can also let your dogs run free here though I saw that they had to be on a leash.

This is a small park up in the hills. The park itself is flat and provides a great view of the Hollywood sign. If you are looking for a better pic, walk up the road that goes above the park - there are a few places that are even better to take a pic - but no parking up there!... More

I take all my friends and family members who visit from out of town to this park. Best view of the Hollywood sign, plus a great place for a nice picnic and drive through the hills. On weekends--especially in the summer--parking can be a challenge, but otherwise you can usually find a space or if you're willing to walk a... More

We really thought this was the best place to see the Hollywood sign. Great Pics. There is a sign on one of the side streets that says "no access" to Hollywood sign, but just ignore it.....I think that's how they cut down on traffic through the neighborhood!

Super cool drive to this park through small and winding streets. Arriving, you'll get some good views on the Hollywood sign and LA. Don't expect any more of this place than just that, but it has to be part of your LA-experience ;-P

This has to be the best photo opportunity for the Hollywood sign. The streets may give your passengers motion sickness as they twist and turn all the way up and all the way down. There is a good deal of parking as it seems not many people know of or don't want to venture that far off the beaten path.

I am an Angeleno and routinely walk around the Lake Hollywood reservoir. I believe this is one of the hidden gems of LA! It's just over 3 miles around, and you enjoy the views of the Hollywood Sign and hills, downtown Hollywood and beyond, a gorgeous reservoir/lake, and wildlife. The dam was commissioned by William Mulhulland, a water pioneer in... More

It must be rather difficult to live up here. First, the roads are very steep and winding. Second, there are tourists and photo takers around all day. It has a great view of both the Hollywood sign and downtown LA skyline (and smog). When we visited it was too hot for any dogs to be playing in the dog park... More
