While in Hollywood, taking in the Hollywood sign is a must.

Hiking a trail is one great way to get outdoors, enjoy the weather and get close to the sign. An easy trail, which is great for beginners is the Mt. Hollywood Trail. The hike is a 3 mile loop that starts at the parking lot at Griffith Observatory. While at the Griffith Observatory, stop inside and check out the planetarium and great views of the city.
