Los Angeles, California for Hiking the Hollywood Sign

We may not have spotted any celebrities on our L.A. trip, but we did get up close and personal with the Hollywood sign! I wanted to get a good picture of it and get some exercise on my trip. We picked the Canyon Blvd trail to do. It’s about 6.5 miles round trip and visits the Batman cave too – an old quarry used in one of the Batman TV shows. It was pretty hot on the trail and we were climbing the whole time so I was glad to have brought lots of water. It took us about three hours all told to get to the top and back. You can’t actually go right up to the sign, it’s guarded behind a fence, but we did get cool views of it coming up the trail and views down over the city from above the sign. Plus, all of L.A.’s sportiest people were out hiking and jogging, which made for some bonus views!
