    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.

    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!

    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.
