Griffith Park’s best-known hike leads to the top of 1,625-foot Mt. Hollywood, the park’s premiere peak. Mt. Hollywood is not the mountain crowned by the historic Hollywood sign; however, the trail to it delivers great views of Mt. Lee and the bold HOLLYWOOD lettering across its summit. Mt. Hollywood can be hiked by way of several different trails but the route from Griffith Observatory is by far the most popular. On clear days the entire basin is spread out before you from the San Gabriel Mountains to the Pacific Ocean. Sometimes mounts San Gorgonio, Baldy and San Jacinto can be seen.
