People tend to check in during these times:
Less trafficked than Runyan Canyon. Lots of that typically LA shrubbery.
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.
great hiking and views of the city when you get highre up
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.
Best hiking area and trails. Lots of fresh air and sun. Great way to get a tan. Totally recommend hiking there, especially if you hike alone, very safe!
Turn left at the bridge and take Henry's trail. It ends with a beautiful panorama of Glendale and Downtown.
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!
Great hike for a view of the city. Bring tennis shoes, dont hike in flip flops and wedges people
There's barely any shady spots, so wear sunglasses, sunscreen, and a sun hat!
It's Spring in Griffith Park and there are plenty of areas to hike. Go off trail for the better areas. Watch for wildlife, rattlesnakes, coyotes. Carry a stick, if necessary.
Skip the trails and climb the rocks up. Listen intently for rattlesnakes. They sound like...a rattle.
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?
Hike to the very top!
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!
I love the different "levels" in difficulty in the hiking paths
Great trail for the pups but didn't see any water dishes along the way. Very sunny so wear sunscreen!
Great in the morning before it's to hot
It is a little bit hot to walk thru, but it worths! Great view of the city.
A Nice place to come and get Way from the fans [sorry I need space too]
Dante's Garden has amazing views, clear or overcast skies. Good stop for dogs. Water nearby.
Park on Fern Dell or the lot just north, look for the trail heading northeast about 30 mins up to the observatory. Great hike! Bring water.
Much more convenient parking and less crowded than Runyon - similar type of trail but maybe slightly easier
Park in Pecan Grove lot and walk to Zoo to avoid the traffic jams at the main lot.
Get up there before 10am or you may have problems finding parking
Shorts and thick socks are your best friend on this hike to the Hollywood sign
First time there. It was awesome!
Go for a run with Orpha after work today!
