the hollywood sign If you’re one of the few non-natives who actually stick around Los Angeles when Holiday Season hits, and you want to try to work off some of that Thanksgiving turkey, you might want to join up on a ranger-led hike to the Hollywood Sign in Griffith Park.

On the mornings of November 27th and 28th from 8 to 11AM, Ranger Ernie Ybarra will lead groups on a moderate 4-6 mile hike to the giant wooden letters. It’s actually illegal to get right up next to the Hollywood sign, and this trek will lead hikers to a spot above the sign itself. However, Ranger Ybarra assures me that the view from the top “is one of the most beautiful views in the world.”

A quiet, tryptophane-filled Los Angeles viewed through cool morning air? Sounds pretty amazing to me!

Meet up at the Griffith Park Visitor Center at 8AM. More information below:

4730 Crystal Springs Drive, Los Angeles
