Overview
For the Mount Hollywood Hike we’ll meet you at the Greek Theater. You’ll then hike through the Bird Sanctuary and up into the Hollywood Hills as we tell you about the first inhabitants of Los Angeles, the Tongva. As we climb the hills you’ll see LA spread below you, so it’s a great way to get an understanding of how the city developed and how the different areas connect with each other. From the summit of Mount Hollywood you can see almost the whole of Los Angeles.

After that we’ll follow the trails down, stopping at some of the best spots to get those Instagram shots of the Hollywood Sign, to the Griffith Observatory. We’ll finish your Mount Hollywood Hike by giving you a quick tour of the Observatory, before leaving you to enjoy this fantastic free museum.
