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.

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

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.

The hike was excellent and the sunset version is a must. It was much more than expected and is not a basic walk in the park, so being in somewhat decent shape is a must. Our guide Solo was the absolute best and had no problem adjusting the pace. We definitely recommend this for others if you enjoy good scenery and a little physical activity.
