Great hike of 5.3 miles. BUT beware of the cut-thru off the Hogback trail- see below. We started at the Merry-Go-Round parking lot. We headed in the direction of the Old Zoo first. This trail is not a marked trail in the park. You have to follow the trail in this app. After we saw the Hollywood sign and Griffith Observatory- we headed along this trail, which is consistent with the the Hogback trail, UNTIL we got to the point the app indicated to leave the fireroad/ Hogback trail and traverse down a not well travelled trail. Very steep, and after you get to the point you are under the electric tower- you have to use a ladder. Ladder is ok, except we had a dog. We had to carry him down the ~40 steps of ladder.

Dog and kids friendly trail will breathtaking view of LA. We started by parking at 3200 Canyon Drive off the dirt road and walked towards the trial. You can hike to the front or back of Hollywood sign via canyon trail . Front of Hollywood sign is about 5.6 miles out and back and the back of the sign is about 6.3 miles. There are other shorter trails that leads to the sign, but if you're a hiker and would like to hike longer distance then this is the perfect way. Bring enough water to keep yourself hydrated. Start hiking latest at 8 am during summer or it gets deadly hot. Either front or back of the sign, it's amazing regardless.
