Hollywood Sign Hike Via Cahuenga Peak
I wanted to hike to the Hollywood sign, and heard this was the most scenic route there. I wasn't disappointed, there were lovely views along the way, from start to finish. From the trailhead at the top of Wonder View Drive you can look down over Universal Studios, and further along the trail you have 360 degree views that include Hollywood, Burbank, Los Angeles, Griffith Park, the Griffith Observatory, Hollywood Reservoir, and more before eventually reaching the sign itself. A good short hike, worth adding to your "to do" list while visiting LA, or a nice side trip for locals.
Hollywood Sign Hike
Hollywood sign from lake Hollywood. The Wonderview trail This trip starts with a rather steep trail to the ridge line. At the top take a right and walk to the area behind the Hollywood sign. Great views of universal studios, Disney on the valley side. You can see all the way to the Palisades and the Pacific on the South side. I stopped the tracker at the sign. My stats don't include the return trip.

Hollywood sign via the a Wisdom Tree and Cahuenga Peak
Nice steep route to the Hollywood sign past Burbank and Cahuenga Peaks. Great little training hike we did during cooler weather periods as the trail is quite exposed. Dog-friendly, but rocky with some steep sections and drops to the right and left. Park on Lake Hollywood Road and walk up Wonderview Drive past the yellow steel gate to the trailhead.
