It took us 10 miles to get to the front of the Hollywood sign. Great photos taking opportunity. But there are a couple of turning points you really meed to ask the locals to avoid getting side tracked. Some of the trails lead to Griffith observatory and some loop around to somewhere else. In addition this map actually leads to the back side of Hollywood sign unless you know at the last stretch- one or two miles also- to turn left so that you get to the front of the Hollywood sign and take a great photo. We started at the Merry go round trail head at 7:20 am and finished it at 11am

Crazy hot! Super long. Extremely steep. Definitely gotta be prepared for an intense hike to complete the trail.
