What you'll do
Reasons to do this hike: 1: You won’t just see the Hollywood Sign, you will see the front, back, side and TOP of the Hollywood Sign. 2: No one takes better pictures of people with the sign. (See Instagram: @hikethehollywoodsign) 3: Shortly after our hike, I will send you a link to download all of the pictures I take with my DSLR at no additional charge. Guests often say this, alone, is worth the cost of admission. (Note: I take A LOT of photos.) 4: Ziggy. Is there a better reviewed dog on AirBnB? (We think not.) 5: Free parking, wifi, restrooms and a place to store your stuff. (These things don’t exist in the park, but they exist at my house, which is where our hike begin & ends.) 6: This is the ONLY sign hike on AirBnB that starts in the original Hollywoodland neighborhood. (Because that's where I live.) 7: This is the ONLY sign hike on AirBnB that doesn’t call itself “#1.” (We think that's lame.) 8: According to one of our guest’s four kids (see reviews) this hike is BETTER than the VIP tour at Universal Studios (not to mention more affordable). 9: THE VIEW FROM THE TOP AT NIGHT: It’s romantic (guests have gotten engaged up there)…it's INSPIRING (life decisions have been made)...AND it's an experience I GUARANTEE you'll never forget. Note: I'm not a tour company. Ziggy and I have and will continue to host EVERY hike personally until I finish writing my book

SO, YOU WANT TO SEE THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN...Well, my dog, Ziggy & I can not only see it from EVERY room in our house -- we live so close to it, we've hiked to, above & around it under EVERY conceivable condition. Which is how I know THE BEST way to experience the Hollywood Sign (& L.A.) is from ABOVE at NIGHT. Sure, it's great during the day, but, at night, it's akin to a religious experience. AND when you hike with Ziggy & me, you are 100% guaranteed to find your way back in the dark. ***This little adventure of ours tends to SELL OUT (often weeks in advance) and seeing as the sun only sets once a day, I am unable to approve requests for special times/dates. So, book before the dates you want are gone. (Note: I schedule hikes 2 months in advance.). Follow @hikethehollywoodsign on IG for updates on our schedule and other hike news.
Bottled Water Hiking uphill has been known to cause thirst.
Pictures: I LOVE photographing people: taking group photos, posing couples and families like they're the cast of a hit TV…
Parking, wi-fi, etc. With my house as base camp, drivers will have parking and ride sharers not only won't have to carry…
Flashlights These -- plus Ziggy, our fearless canine companion -- will help us find our way back in the dark.

Where you'll be
The hike begins at my house approximately one hour before sunset, which gives us enough light to take pictures with the sign before it gets dark. (Sunset times vary, so click my calendar to see the times for this month. ) It will be dark by the time we reach the top, but that's by design, because I think you'll agree it's the best way to see the city lights. The path is well-maintained and mostly paved -- a great hike for beginners.
