H O L L Y W O O D H I K E



How can one visit California and not hike to the Hollywood sign?! I have always dreamed of doing this. However, I was a little hesitant beforehand because I did not know what to expect. I had read online about parking on Beachwood Drive and taking the trail to the sign from there because it would be a much shorter route. By the time we got to Beachwood Drive, I had no idea where the route even started and soon later gave up that idea. Instead, we headed over to the main entrance of the trail (where the tourists who do not know what they are doing go..aka me). Little did I know we would be hiking uphill for 4.5 miles to get to the sign. Thankfully, there was a half way point with a stunning view of Hollywood that we rested at for a minute and snapped some pictures. Now I know why most locals we talked to had not done the hike. Nonetheless, it was such a rewarding experience with an incredible view of LA. I would definitely do it all over again, but maybe take the shorter route next time haha ;) So, for anyone going to Cali and planning on hiking to the sign, I recommend doing some research ahead of time and taking the trail from Beachwood Drive.
Happy Friday, you guys!
