The Hollyridge trail head which leads to the Hollywood Sign will be closed for five weeks beginning Tuesday.

Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge says the city has decided to replace the trail's old T-bar gate with a more secure barrier.

The change is being made to prevent trespassers from entering the trail head at night.

Once the new gate is installed, the trail head will be open from dawn to dusk.
