I have been living in LA for 10 years now and I have always wanted to go up to the back of the Hollywood sign. I’ve gone hiking on the Hollywood sign trail, but never knew how to find my way to get to the top.
It was a long journey, but it was so worth it. Making it to the very top of the mountain and overseeing our beautiful city was something I will never forget.
I found this step by step guide that was so helpful and I wanted to share it with you guys in case you decide to take this route and a few tips that I think would be helpful (that I did not think of prior to coming here)

• Parking on Beachwood Drive is crazy, you can’t park on Weekends or Holidays close to the beginning of the trail so you have to park about 5-7 blocks down and let’s face it, who wants to hike up to the beginning of the hiking trail?? NOT ME! So next time I am going to Uber up here.. LOL
• Bring lots of water with you, that’s a must and make sure to bring snacks, Samantha and I were starving by the time we reached the top of the mountain (we got lucky that we didn’t faint haha)
Going up to the top of the mountain and coming back down took us about an hour each way (we don’t exercise much so we had to take a few breaks here and there :p)
