    It's worth walking on this trail, super serene and different from the hectic hustle and bustle of downtown LA.

    Lots of different trails. Pick one and hike! Bring water though because there are no water fountains anywhere.

    Don't go on a holiday, very busy!

    Some trails -- everything is unmarked -- end with a fence. Please, park rangers, can't you put signage at the other end to say a trail is closed?

    If you go in the summer, BRING WATER! Like, WAY more than you think you'll need. I'm a seasoned hiker/athlete and the heat combined with virtually zero shade were too much for me!

  • Jeff W.

    Hike to the very top!

    It's possible to hike in the middle of LA! Griffith Park has over 56 miles of hiking and horseback riding trails that vary in elevation.

    Very nice and scenic parking can be a hassle excellent location for pictures

    Gorgeous views along w/ a great workout! Less people than at Runyon Canyon. Wear running shoes, trails can be slippery. Next to the zoo & golf course so it's a perfect spot for the whole family!

    Watch out this trail is a doozy because it has a high incline but very worth it because it'll work your butt muscles.

    Great trail for the pups but didn't see any water dishes along the way. Very sunny so wear sunscreen!

    Grab your hiking boots and make your way from the Los Angeles Zoo to the Griffith Observatory, made famous by “Rebel Without a Cause.” Stop at Trails Café for lunch.

    Much more convenient parking and less crowded than Runyon - similar type of trail but maybe slightly easier

    Walk your dog, exercise or have a picnic. Keep going uphill and you'll enjoy a fascinating view of Greater Los Angeles.
