Perhaps the most famous, immensely popular and the most celebrated cultural icon of the Hollywood century is the Hollywood sign. Situated upon the Mount Lee of the Hollywood Hills, it was built to promote and advertise the development and progress of real estate business. Being a bearer of national heritage of American cinema, it is safeguarded by authorities and has been used as an official appearance for establishing movie culture in the movies since decades.
The sign underwent the facing of severities of weather and damage, and therefore has been restored to render permanency of grandeur and perfectness of condition for years to come. Its usage in films requires charge for being licensed. However, the publicity of the sign remains an elite grandeur for Hollywood and a cinematic fascination for the international tourists.

Amazing to see! It is a little smaller than you would originally think, so if you haven’t seen it... don’t get your hopes up! However it is really cool and there are a few places where you will get a great view of it and no.1 being Lake Hollywood Park! You can drive up to the location and it’s the best view you will get of the sign! It’s also a great view of LA at night time.
It's a nice trekking to get there. You can't actually go to the sign but you can get really close to it. You can take pictures with a front view of it. I recommend to do the trekking and also visit Griffith Park. The view of the city is amazing. There are no restrooms and it can get really hot. It's very dry and all the trail is dusty.
The hike is challenging but doable. I definitely enjoyed the time I had there. The sites are so beautiful! It's a great experience for anyone to have.
Seeing the sign from below is cool, but hiking right up to it is really neat. I used to live in Los Angeles for four years and it's never hiked up to it. Recently I was visiting here and decided to hike up from the observatory with a friend. The hike was beautiful and being right behind the sign was a really cool experience. It takes about 1:30 to hike there and another 1:30 to hike back. It's not too difficult, but be sure to bring lots of water. There is one drinking fountain about halfway through the hike.
I went on a nice hike up to the back and front of the sign. What a great feeling of achievement, and the views made the climb well worth it. So many people coming for their workout. I won't ever try to ride my bike up and especially not down a mountain. They had skills for sure. There were so many memorable things about this experience.
