Beautiful walk up to the observatory. Took our 14 yo boxer and she did great. Coming downhill is a bit rough on the knees. Beautiful greenery and stream in the park after all this rain!

This is definitely a beautiful Trail. The Trail Head Starts at Los Feliz and FernDell. You'll see the Trail head sign. Even though all the Trails head up to the Observatory. I highly recommend walking along the Ferndell sign. There are some beautiful views. This Trail is 3.5 miles round trip.

If you want to walk less you can park closer up to the trail and make it 2 miles. So depends on how much walking you want to do. Beautiful views, free parking, although you can't park before or after Sunset on FernDell. didn't check restrictions in the parking lots.

Enjoy.
