This trail begins at the Griffith Park Visitor Center and heads up a gravel fire road and follows a wide single track that climb and drop down a number of steep ridges. The trail intersects and follows an asphalt road that leads to the very top of Griffith Park, right above the Hollywood sign.
Great change of intensity and awesome views!!
The trail is not marked very well so make sure your phone is fully charged and use the trail app. We got somewhat lost. We took the trail up to Mmt Hollywood and then to the Observatory. Out total trek was 8.6.
Great hike! I'd say upper moderate range. This map of the trail is outdated and leads you to fenced off trails under construction and shortcuts that take you off the trail and are unnecessary. Please update the map.
Those that say this is easy must not have done the full 8.7 mile trail. This was one of the most difficult hikes- very steep inclines. Took us about 4 hours to complete, and you get right behind the sign. Awesome views the entire way. Very little shade so bring a good sun hat. I was proud of myself for finishing the whole thing- my apple watch registered 22,000 steps!
Great trail to hike for all ages. The inclines will get you but the views are totally worth it. Bring lots of water and note that there are not many places to go to the bathroom along the trail. There is not much shade so bring sunscreen. This trail is heavily trafficked so it is best to do on a weekday. The views are amazing. Make sure to do the Bronson trail first - check out the bat caves!
Awesome hike! I've been here 3 times
Great hike! World recommend going early in the morning because later in the day it gets very hot and the trail is not shaded
I love this touristy trail! Great in the early morning.
A great half day hike to one of the most famous landmarks in the world. There is a decent amount of uphill gain and the trial is primality in direct sunlight for the entirety of the trail. Make sure you bring plenty of water and watch out for rattlesnakes in the summer time.
it's easy but it's a nice little workout.. I've seen people go 2x or 3x up and down to get an extreme workout.. i like it... always clean
