Come join the Team for a hike to the historic Hollywood Sign! The Hollywood Sign is Los Angeles' most iconic symbol, not to mention the most famous sign in the world. Originally erected in 1923 and then rebuilt in 1979, each letter is 50-feet high and 30-feet wide and the full sign spans 450-feet across the 1,675-foot summit of Mount Lee, overlooking the entire LA basin. Located within Griffith Park, an urban wilderness right in the heart of Hollywood, this strenuous, 5-mile hike will lead you to an overlook just above and behind the sign.
Two very cool things here: 1) The awesome hike to the Hollywood Sign and 2) The bat cave used in the 1960s TV Batman show! Stupidly exciting, and two great ways to enjoy this little park.
A medium steep 2.5 hour hike. (about 4 miles). Bring water, sunscreen and your camera. Parking is free but there is a small lot, so first come first serve. Let’s try to carpool.
