Great hike for most people, if it's hot take your time and seek out shade when you can.
Ranges from Hard core to light trails
This is a fairly easy hike. However, there is a constant flow of direct sunlight so sunscreen it up and brink a big bottle of cool water
It can be easy to get lost. Take map or GPS.
Very peaceful and pretty view. Opportunities for off road hiking ;)
Great way to start your day. Early mornings are my fave.
Along the trails you'll find numerous stunning views of DTLA, the Hollywood sign, and the ocean. Take your time and enjoy the hike.
Great, easy hike. I recommend the left trail.
Too crowded! People everywhere
It's worth walking on this trail, super serene and different from the hectic hustle and bustle of downtown LA.
The skyline it is amazing🌃🌌🌆
Nice park great for hiking and beautiful views. There's a tennis court and golfing a theater and observatory. Family fun!
Lots of different trails. Pick one and hike! Bring water though because there are no water fountains anywhere.
Good views of the hooky wood sign and testle coil is fun to watch
Such a good hike!! Once you get to the top, the view of the city is amazing. You can see the Hollywood sign as well
Quick and strict with the parking tickets
Check out the sun clock its amazing how accurate it is!
Fucking in the bushes is popular here, but always check for snakes first
Great place to hike and get out of the LA MADNESS for a few!
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!
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!
Great trail to bring visitors on!
I love the different "levels" in difficulty in the hiking paths
Beautiful views and plenty of trails.
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!
Great in the morning before it's to hot
It's a great place to go and exercise, especially all the way to the top.
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.
If you want to get a great workout while taking in breathtaking views of Downtown LA, this is the spot for you.
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.
Park in Pecan Grove lot and walk to Zoo to avoid the traffic jams at the main lot.
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!
