Ah yes, a view of the famous Hollywood Sign completely backwards with a 360 panoramic view of LA, Burbank, Hollywood, and beyond! There is simply so much hiking to do in the Los Angeles area, it is overwhelming. Place like Runyon and Temescal Canyons are among some of the most popular, but I like the view at the top of Mt. Lee! “Peaceful” & “LA” do not often fall into the same sentence; but this would be the exception to the rule.
Hiking to this view is the hard part, but there is a paved road accessible within Griffith Park that you can only walk up the back side of Mt. Lee tothe top. Many people locally and on Los Angeles Tours can get great views facing the Hollywood Sign, but should never attempt to hike up the front of Mt. Lee. I see people getting in trouble with the Police monthly; not to mention it is treacherous terrain. So get out there and take a hike!
