Similar to Runyon, this is a pretty easy hike it’s just long. But it takes you right behind the Hollywood sign, which is pretty cool. I recommend you do it at least once. But beware of the horse poop.

That's right, you can hike the Hollywood Sign and almost get close enough to touch it. This is one of my favorite hikes in Los Angeles for a number of reasons. One, it's the Hollywood Sign, and the view behind it looking out across Los Angeles is one of my favorite views (and photos) in the city. Furthermore, it's a really fun, pleasant hike, especially with others, plus provides access to a number of other trails in Griffith Park, which boasts more than 50 miles of trails. The most direct path to the Hollywood Sign used to be at the end of North Beachwood Drive. However, the city has been forced to reroute hikers. While there are a number of different Griffith Park trails that eventually wind their way to the Hollywood Sign, I'd recommend parking as close to Griffith Park Observatory as possible, and taking the trail near the parking lot that leads away from the observatory. The Los Angeles Times recently explained that Hollywood Sign hike here, or, for an alternate route, follow the Modern Hiker's instructions for the Canyon Drive hiking route to the Hollywood Sign.

The corner of South Windsor Blvd. and West 5th Street will give you perfect ‘gram-worthy views.

Can’t say you’ve been to LA until you’ve seen the Hollywood Sign. Griffith Observatory has a nice view of it although it’s a bit distant hence the sign’s smaller. Otherwise, 3000 Canyon Lake Drive is also a good spot. You could always do the actual hike up to the back of the sign as well. (More info can be found here.) Even better yet, take a helicopter tour!
