    If you ever feel lost in Los Angeles, this is the place to reconnect with the world. A really special and intimate way to reconnect!!!

    Th observatory at the top of the trail is worth a visit in its own right, but you're missing out on the experience you don't hike up the trail from the base. Feels a bit like gently storming a castle.

    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

    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!

    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.
