Fire risk is HIGH in the Hollywood Hills. Fire fighters have been hard at work trying to contain a forrest fire near our famous Sign . Please be careful while hiking in the dry hillside and do not bring any open flames (cigarettes, camp fires, fireworks) into the park.
A reminder that trespassing to the Sign is illegal and you will be arrested. Please respect the rules set up by the city and respect that the land around the Sign is dedicated to the animals of Griffith Park. Thank you.
Hikes to the Hollywood Sign and viewpoints to the Hollywood Sign will be open Memorial Day weekend. The hikes hours are always the same as Griffith Park’s hours. Please bring plenty of water and remember trespassing to the Sign is always illegal.

El Nino brought a flurry of calls about when the hiking trails on are open or closed according to the weather. The hiking trails operate on the same hours and restrictions as Griffith Park. If Griffith Park is open, our hiking trails are open as well.
Smog declined in Southern California over the last year. That’s according to the South Coast Air Quality District, which said we had 10 fewer high ozone days during 2015’s peak smog season than the previous year. Ozone is the primary gas in smog and can damage lungs. In total, there were only 82 days when smog levels exceeded federal standards for clean air. That may sound bad, but it’s better…
The Hollywood Sign Shuttle is currently closed for the season. Please check back to find out when we’ll be reopening it again.
