Hollywood Hills Hiking Tour in Los Angeles

Hollywood Hills Hiking Tour in Los Angeles

Follow a guide on a 2.5-hour hiking trip in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles, during which you'll enjoy spectacular views of the nearby mountain ranges, the Hollywood sign and Griffith Park Observatory. If you're looking for a little taste of nature during your visit to the concrete jungle of Los Angeles, this hiking excursion is just the ticket.
Start your hike in front of The Greek Theatre in Griffith Park at either 10am, 3pm or 4:30pm, the timing of which will depend on the time of day and month of the year you've selected for your visit. Please arrive 15 minutes before your start time. Then begin your trip along a trail overlooking the L.A. neighborhood of Los Feliz, a historic area adjacent to Griffith Park that's home to numerous celebrities such as Hollywood power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
Climb into the foothills on your hike, your view getting even more spectacular the higher you climb. As you ascend you're likely to see great views of L.A. areas such as Hollywood, the Sunset Strip, Century City, downtown Los Angeles, Silver Lake and the San Fernando Valley. You'll also be able to spot Forest Lawn Memorial Park, a cemetery known as the final resting place of icons like Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor.
Continue your hike by walking up to Mount Hollywood, the home of the world-famous Hollywood sign. Discover details about the sign's origins and history from your guide before continuing on to Griffith Park Observatory nearby. For those that choose the sunset walk, you'll head to a dramatic overlook with top-notch views of both the Hollywood sign and Griffith Park Observatory. Make sure to bring your camera for poster-worthy sunset shots, as you take in the setting sun and the glowing lights of Los Angeles down below. Finish your hike back at your departure point after 2.5 hours.

Our guide, JS was great! He was very knowledgable and provided historical information that was very interesting. He kept us at a good pace and frequently asked if the pace was ok, if there was anything else we wanted to know, etc. Great job, JS!

This tour was AWESOME! Salo was a great guide - personable and informative. The hike was a highlight for my daughter and I during our 2-day visit to LA. On our mid-week tour, it was just us and Salo. We enjoyed the hiking, the beautiful views, the history lessons, and the movie clips. Time and $ well spent!

Solo was an outstanding guide - very informative, personable, and knowledgable about the area. He tailors the hiking experience to that day's group. Make sure to wear closed toed shoes with good grip due to loose gravel. Water and granola bars provided. The tour even includes guided commentary inside the Griffith Observatory. This hike was the highlight of our LA vacation!

This was an amazing tour with a fantastic, friendly and knowledgeable host - I think his name was Sal. The views were incredible and Sal had some really interesting stories about the local area. He even gave me a lift back into town afterwards! Brilliant experience

A highlight of the LA experience! Incredible vistas, interesting history, spectacular sunset and even some astronomy at the observatory. Salo did a great job with the stories and insights that made this a truly memorable tour. If you are up for some exercise, this tour should not be missed.

Really interesting and enjoyable hike. The guide was excellent - very friendly and knowledgeable and interesting and fun. Would definitely recommend this tour. Would suggest wearing shoes that have some grip though as some of the tracks were a little steep and slippy.
