    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.

    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.

    Turn left at the bridge and take Henry's trail. It ends with a beautiful panorama of Glendale and Downtown.

    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!

    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.

    Fucking in the bushes is popular here, but always check for snakes first

    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!

    There's barely any shady spots, so wear sunglasses, sunscreen, and a sun hat!

    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!

  • Kat L.

    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!

    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

    Elise A. · September 10, 2012
  • Emily C.

    Park in Pecan Grove lot and walk to Zoo to avoid the traffic jams at the main lot.
