The Best Hiking Trails to the Iconic Hollywood Sign

The Best Hiking Trails to the Iconic Hollywood Sign

NYC may have its Statue of Liberty, but in LA there’s no need for a huge and fancy statue to symbolize the city. It’s a HOLLYWOOD sign right up there on the side of the mountain. It’s a sight that’s one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world, and invariably every movie and TV show displays the sign to immediately tell people where the action is.

While it seems like a great view from below, you know what’s better? It’s if you can hike up to it so that you can take a selfie with that huge sign as your immediate background. There’s an easy way to get there, and there’s another hiking trail you can use if you want more of a challenge.

The Easy Trail

If you want to take things easy, it’s understandable. All you need to do is to take the Mount Hollywood trail to take you right to the sign. You start in Griffith Park, with 2 possible starting points in the area.

The starting point for the shorter trail starts at the parking lot of the Griffith Observatory. This hike is about 3 miles long, which is like a stroll in the park for most hikers. For newbies, it’s not all that bad either.

The other starting point is on a fire road intersecting N. Vermont Canyon Road. It’s only a little bit longer. You can find parking at both spots, but you may have to compete with other hikers especially if you come later in the day. You should come in early in the morning so parking is easier, plus you can enjoy a cooler hike.

The Charlie Turner Trailhead also has another starting point for the Mt. Hollywood trail. You can’t miss it, as you’ll see various signs that should point you the right direction.

Just remember, this is the easy trail with different starting points. It’ll be a little over 3 miles, and it should take you about 2 hours to hike. It’ll take you right next to the sign.

The Challenging Trail

If you’re really fit and itching to prove it, then this is the trail for you. This is the Canyon Drive trail, and you’ll end up behind the sign with this hike. What’s more, you get to see the awesome view of downtown LA as well as the San Fernando Valley.

It’s about 6½ miles long and you’ll need about 4 hours to complete the journey. Keep in mind that you’ll hike going up by about 1100 feet, so be prepared. Take lots of water with you, and make sure you have sunscreen.

Plenty of people start this trail at the wee hours of the morning. This gives you a cooler hike and at the end, the sunlight gives you a great view. But you may also want to try it at sunset too. The view is a lot more unique, and you get enchanting hues with your views of downtown LA and the San Fernando Valley.

Karlie Kloss Teaching Code to Teenage Girls

Karlie Kloss Teaching Code to Teenage Girls

If you’ve followed fashion over the last decade, then you’re familiar with the Karlie Kloss name. She’s the gorgeous model who’s actually been around for the last 11 years or so. She’s BFFs with the likes of Taylor Swift and Serena Williams. Her boyfriend is Joshua Kushner, who happens to be the younger brother of Ivanka Trump’s husband Jared Kushner.

So how can a fashion model suddenly teach doing to teens? Actually, it’s all because of the people she met while working in fashion.

Learning the Language

As a model, her work often had her meeting various Silicon Valley entrepreneurs at parties. It didn’t take her long to realize that these were the people whose technology was suddenly changing how society worked.

Karlie wanted to learn what they knew, so she learned. She went to a 2-week class at the Flatiron School, which is a renowned coding boot camp in lower Manhattan. That’s where she learned how to use the Ruby program to build web apps. It’s wasn’t all that hard for her, because prior to her modeling career she excelled as a student in subjects like math and science.

A year after that, she began her own coding scholarship program at the Flatiron School. This program grew to 50 camps in up to 25 cities. This summer, a thousand girls in those camps can learn various coding skills such as basic HTML/CSS, Ruby, and JavaScript. They can get into virtual reality programs, gaming platforms, and even artificial intelligence.

Networking and Connections

Part of her professional life as a model was meeting people from many other industries in various parts of the world. It just so happens that Karlie Kloss also met Kevin Systrom, who founded Instagram. Kloss was fascinated by how such a platform can touch the lives of hundreds of millions of people, and she wanted to understand that skill set and language. It was this meeting that gave her the nudge to go to the Flatiron School.

Her friendship with Serena Williams also includes sitting together on the board of Oath. This is the Verizon subsidiary that owns AOL, Yahoo, and other digital content brands.

Her beau’s career is also separate from the political industry in which Jared Kushner is a part of. Joshua is a venture capitalist, and he also helped found the health insurance start-up Oscar Health.

Kode with Klossy

Karlie Kloss isn’t just a model. She also runs Klossy, which is a philanthropic organization also involved with both fashion and multimedia. She runs this group out of her home in Lafayette Street in SoHo.

In 2015, she started Koding with Klossy as a coding camp for teenage girls. It’s to counterbalance the fact that most coding camps are predominantly peopled by boys and men. In such an all-girls environment, teenage girls tend to feel safer and more comfortable.

The results have been very encouraging. One camper had been accepted to Princeton University, where she will major in computer science. Another had completed a computer science internship at Microsoft, while another girl had just finished an internship at Viacom and will now pursue her activist goals with the help of coding.

In the end, it’s not farfetched to realize that pretty models and girls can learn how to code. The fact that some people judge due to gender is actually one of the first misconceptions that must be put to rest, sooner or later. Karlie Kloss is doing just that.

New Girlboss Platform to Challenge LinkedIn

New Girlboss Platform to Challenge LinkedIn

LinkedIn is perhaps the most widely acknowledged social networking platform for professionals. It has trounced its many rivals, but now it has to face the coming of Sophia Amoruso’s new Girlboss professional social-networking platform. Called the Girlboss Collective, it’s set to launch in January of 2019.

Leading Up to Girlboss Collective

Girlboss founder Sophia Amoruso previously established the online retailer Nasty Gal, before founding Girlboss as a career site customized for millennial women. It has recently received an additional $3.5 million cash investment during the latest funding round. This was started by Initialized Capital, which is the venture capital group led by Alexis Ohanian (who co-founded Reddit).

Based on the latest funding round in 2017, Girlboss is now worth $13.1 million. The idea of a professional Girlboss social network was borne from a closed Facebook group called “Girlboss Gang,” which has more than 5,600 members.

Why Target LinkedIn?

It’s somewhat hard to understand how a new social platform can dare to challenge an established colossus in the industry such as LinkedIn. This is widely considered as the social platform for professionals. Nothing else comes close.

But according to Sophia Amoruso, LinkedIn isn’t as current as it ought to be anymore. Amoruso views LinkedIn as a platform for a bygone traditional era which no longer exists. Supposedly, LinkedIn focuses too much on where people previously worked and went to school, while it overlooks the importance of showing more about a person’s character.

Girlboss Collective Features

The plan is to launch the Girlboss Collective as a paid professional social-networking platform. This platform will be established as a networking hub to serve primarily women, though it is open to serve the professional networking needs of both men and women.

It’s especially geared towards women, however, who may have careers that may not be considered particularly traditional. These women may work as freelancers instead of as employees for a single company. They may also have significant gaps in their work history, or they may be working several part-time jobs at once.

It is still in its testing phase, and at this time it is only for US users. Getting on it is by invitation only, and so far more than 15,000 users are on the Girlboss Collective waiting list.

Once you become a Girlboss Collective member, you can view up to 50 hours of Girlboss Rallies. These are the networking events that Girlboss hold in LA and NYC with various panels and keynote speakers on a wide variety of relevant topics. Subjects that have been covered include how you can create a viable business out of your part-time jobs and you can navigate the Boys Club (which can be difficult if you’re a woman).

The next Girlboss Rally is on November in NYC. The speakers scheduled to appear to include Zola founder and CEO Shan-Lyn Ma and Marah Lidey who is the co-founder and co-CEO of Shine. Other speakers include Arianna Huffington and Jennifer Hyman, who co-founded Rent the Runway.
