    For all those road runners out there, consider trail running here. It will train all the tiny stabilizer muscles in your lower legs that road running just won’t hit. Read more

    There's a great hike for out-of-town visitors. Starts near merry-go-round. 360 views of LA and Valley from the top, plus great views of Hollywood sign. But beware...a long uphill!

    You can pretty much do it all here: picnics, hiking, dog-walking, running or star gazing (at the observatory). Romantic tip: the city lights at night are gorgeous from up here.

    Travel Town is great for kids. My preschooler loved the old trains and getting inside them. The little train you can ride in was great too. Very cheap and worth your time especially with kids.

    If you are leaving the park after 10PM, don't use any other exit route except the road leading to Los Feliz, all gates close @10PM. But if like driving a dark, winding road, then check the routes.
