Route to Hollywood Sign about to Get Longer

Los Angeles soon will block the shortest hike to the Hollywood sign. For tourists wanting to get to the Hollywood sign and back in a reasonable amount of time, this is virtually a death sentence for their dreams.

The Beachwood Canyon route, as its come to be known, has been a popular tourist destination for years to the disdain of residents. The city, however, only barely listened to their complaints. It took a local business, Sunset Ranch Hollywood Stables, to sue for the city to finally take action.

The Hollywood sign will still be accessible, but tourists will have to take longer, more difficult paths to reach it.
