It’s a new year, and a new us. We survived the pandemic. We continue to operate safe, fun, family-friendly tours for visitors, and now that the state is fully reopened, we’d like to be the first to welcome you back to California. Come visit us this summer, and kick off your first post-pandemic family vacation or 4th of July in LA on our latest, greatest tour: our OFFICIAL HOLLYWOOD SIGN HIKE EXPRESS TOUR!!

Wait, you think. Can’t I already hike to the Hollywood Sign with Bikes and Hikes LA? Don’t you have a Hollywood Sign Hike already? Don’t you email me at least once a week, inviting me to take the best tours in LA? (Guilty. But come on, how cute are our emails? And how fun are our LA tours?! And if you haven’t subscribed to our email list already- what are you even doing? Subscribe here.) Anyway, all of the above is correct- we DO have an Official Hollywood Sign Hike, you CAN book a Hollywood Sign Hike Tour with us, and we WILL send you all kinds of fun updates regularly about what’s going on at Bikes and Hikes LA.

And we’d love to hear from you, too! Drop us a line with ideas, questions, and cool photos from your LA tours!

Back to the subject at hand. We LOVE our Official Hollywood Sign Hike Tour so much, that we created a newer, hotter, faster version of it – introducing our newest outdoor LA tour, the Official Hollywood Sign Express Hike! This Hollywood Sign Hike is an abridged, express version of our popular Official Hollywood Sign Hike, shortened to a 1.5 hour tour. This tour is perfect for the go-getters, goal setters, early risers, and bucket listers in your group. We created this tour for guests with packed itineraries and big days planned, who want to knock out a hike to the Hollywood Sign, and head right to brunch/the pool/whatever other fabulous things you have on your agenda for your visit to Los Angeles. This hike tour allows you to take in all of the sights and highlights of our Hollywood Sign Hike, including panoramic views on Los Angeles, unbeatable instagram opportunities, good exercise, and an iconic lifetime opportunity to take in the Hollywood Sign and all of its glory. Read on to discover why you should book our Hollywood Sign Express Hike this summer!


The main reason we created the Hollywood Sign Express Hike is so you can take in all of the best parts of our OFFICIAL Hollywood Sign Hike in a shortened, quicker version of our OG tour. You can schedule your day around a quick walking tour up to the Hollywood Sign, grab some pictures in front of the sign and behind the sign, hear our local guides’ epic tales of local, iconic Hollywood History, and then wrap up your tour at the base of the Hollywood Sign, and go about your day. It’s a 1.5 hour, 2.5 mile walk- boom. Easy. Simple. Official. Express.

You’ll jump start your day…with an invigorating walk!

Don’t be fooled by the name! Even though the Official Hollywood Sign Hike Express Hike is a quick, easy version of our Hollywood Sign Hike, you’ll take in a great little workout on this express Hollywood Hike Tour. The hike is an easy to moderate one, which kicks off on a flat path, and leads you up a mostly paved road up behind the Hollywood Sign. You’ll take in a couple thousand steps, and burn some calories as you stroll up the hill. We encourage hikers of all ages and fitness levels to book this tour- you’ll be ready for a big lunch or brunch afterwards!
