we visited here twice, as part of our 6 hour LA City Tour and again at the end of a hike up to see the sign. Interesting place, free entry with the usual expensive gift shop and restaurant

Griffith Park is a great place to hike. The Mt. Hollywood hiking trail was moderately challenging and provided incredible views of the Hollywood hills. The trail culminates with two nice vantage points for photo ops with the Hollywood Sign. Very clean trail.

You can hike on a path, or up to the Observatory (for a great view of the Hollywood sign and the surrounding hills). It's a vast, beautiful park with many different trails...and a carousel!
