HOW THE HELL DO I HIKE THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN?

HOW THE HELL DO I HIKE THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN?

GPS.jpg

Let's start by heading to the intersection of FRANKLIN AVENUE and NORTH BEACHWOOD DRIVE. As a guide you can punch in 6150 MULHOLLAND HWY, LOS ANGELES, CA, 90068 into your GPS. I have found that I lose all service while heading to the Hollywood Hike so I have to rely on my alternate guide which you will see below

Please keep in mind on WEEKENDS (Saturday and Sunday) as well as on HOLIDAYS you cannot park up at the entrance of the hike SO I suggest if you plan to go then find street parking on BEACHWOOD DRIVE and uber to 6150 MULHOLLAND HWY to begin the hike

Once you turn onto NORTH BEACHWOOD DRIVE (there is only one direction to turn the other way is a dead end) you will continue to head up BEACHWOOD until you reach LEDGEWOOD DRIVE...

 Once you reach LEDGEWOOD DRIVE you will TAKE A LEFT.

 At this intersection take a slight left then quick right up Ledgewood Drive.

TAKE A SLIGHT LEFT TOWARDS THE LEDGEWOOD & RODGERTON SIGNS AND A QUICK RIGHT CONTINUING ON LEDGEWOOD DRIVE... PASS HEATHER DRIVE AND CONTINUE STRAIGHT...

 You will see this path but pass it and keep going!

I know this looks intimidating but I PROMISE you are going the right way! Be respectful of the private properties and stay on the PATH! Do NOT wonder off into people's driveways or yards

 You will see this to your LEFT but to your RIGHT you will want to continue towards this little gate ----->>>>>>

 This is a great photo spot but I PROMISE IT GETS BETTER!!!! KEEP GOING!!! Or if you are with someone who can't really hike just take pics here and leave! I have done that before!

WHEN YOU REACH THE SPLIT ON THE TRAIL... 

 YOU CAN GO LEFT OR RIGHT.... CONTINUE TO THE LEFT TO GO BEHIND THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN. It is my understanding the path to the right leads back to Griffith Observatory or to a different entrance

 Break in the Road: GO LEFT to get behind the HOLLYWOOD SIGN!

LITERALLY KEEP FOLLOWING THE PATH TO THE TOP! 

WE MADE IT TO THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN!!!! 

HAPPY HIKING FIT FRIENDS!
