If you keep driving up Beachwood Drive in search of the Hollywood Sign, eventually you'll hit a dead end at Sunset Ranch Hollywood's cluster of horse stables. The ranch offers a variety of daily trail rides through Griffith Park. Pricier and longer rides include meals or a trek to the top of the park or Mt. Lee, but even the basic one-hour ride lets you snag a close-up look at the Hollywood Sign along with sweeping views of the hills and L.A. cityscape below.
Whether by foot or car, there's no wrong way to see the Hollywood Sign—except for trespassing onto the area in front of the sign itself. But if you don't feel like hiking or navigating windy Hollywood Hills streets, consider embarking on a Hollywood Sign tour. Most L.A. attraction-spanning itineraries include a stop at the Hollywood icon, but if you're specifically looking for a Hollywood Sign tour, consider one of these options.
