there's a knoll ...

... on a direct vector between the observatory and the hollywood sign. it's a rock outcrop that can be reached off the (closed to vehicles) Griffith Observatory road. the knoll is about a 20 minute hike from the cross-roads at the base of the observatory, and IMO one of — if not THE best — place to shoot both sunrises and moonrises.

during the shuttle endeavors fly-by, this knoll presented at least four opportunities, two of them over the observatory, one over the Hollywood sign, and one over downtown LA.

other good places to catch sun/moon rises is atop mt. hollywood, taking the trail the OP describes, or from Mt. Lee, behind the Hollywood sign. the park is open from 05:00 and closes at 22:00. take a headlamp and have some fun.
