Address: 3160 Canyon Lake Dr, Hollywood, CA
Of all the Hollywood Sign viewing sites, this one might be the most popular. Located in Lake Hollywood Estates, this location offers a playground, dog-friendly open field, picnic tables, spacious observation area, and postcard views of Los Angeles.
Across from the observation area (upper dirt plateau), there’s a hidden hiking trail that leads you down to the lake / Hollywood Reservoir. Look for the two yellow Dead End signs – walk between them and go down the driveway (bottom row photos). You’ll find the trailhead to the right of the white wall.
While in the area, consider checking out another nearby Hollywood sign viewing area, via Deronda.
