From the tops of the Hollywood Hills, LA

“Like so much in LA, if you look around enough, you see straight past all the uniformity to the wonder of it all.” ~Moby

Who knew one could hill hop Hollywood’s infamous backdrop? All the way from Lake Hollywood Drive to the Hollywood sign, you’ve got a 360 degree view over Los Angeles’s urban sprawl. The only body of water seen from this vantage point is the Reservoir. For the Pacific, you need to cruise further West.

If you’re keen to travel the trail, it is called Cahuenga Peak; added to Griffith Park as public land with help of donations by City of LA, Tiffany&Co, Foundation Aileen Getty, Hugh M. Hefner, State of California, Steven Spielberg, Lucasfilm Foundation, amongst many others.

Inspired by the words of LA resident Moby, here are some pictures taken from those hilltops.

  1. Hi Marina, I could never get tired of looking at this landscape. I am imagining the warm sand from the hills working its way into my running shoes… : )
    I’d love to be walking there. Beautiful vistas!
