A little appreciation post for my favorite place in the world, home sweet home.
There are tons of different hikes in California, most of which I hope to write about and visit while I’m home. I know I’ve complained about this before, but Florida had absolutely zero “hikes,” the kind that take you up steep hills, down others, across valleys, etc. So I’m taking FULL advantage of hiking while I’m home.
The first hike we got too, and my favorite, was that of the famous “Hollywood Sign” hike. I’ve done this hike multiple times but each time is different and without failure, once I hit the top, I realize how beautiful Los Angeles is and how lucky I am to call this city home.
With that, I would like to highlight a specific route on the hike, where you are able get the best view of the sign for the best photo ops.
- Type into GPS Lake Hollywood Park (3160 North Canyon Dr.) and park here!
- Walk up the hill on Mulholland Drive, follow the road through the residential area.
- You’ll end up on Mt. Lee Summit, walk around the “wall” and follow the dirt path up.
- Along the dirt path you’ll vier up and to the left to get that picture perfect view.
- From here you can continue hiking to get to the top of the mountain and the view from behind the sign.
Of course, most directions will tell you to park towards the Griffith Observatory and hike starting there. This hike is much, much longer and only takes you to the very top (behind the sign). But it’s still a great hike as well!
Hope you’ll give it a try if you get the chance!
