Hiked this trail this weekend. Rode Uber to the observatory parking lot. The trail was very crowded which is to be expected with a urban park like this. Took Uber forever to pick me up. Should have walked down to the Greek Theater to catch our Uber ride. I would consider doing more trails in this area in the future.
Easy hike. Will definitely do it again. Parking sucks on the weekends.
Pretty easy- but amazing views
I'm a beginner and this was an easy hike. The trail is wide and I saw a couple of families with toddlers in strollers. The view is amazing! I can keep going back with my nine year old.
I took the one L.
First off if you're planning to park and hike up through the Canyon Rd. side- get there early or you'll get stuck trying to find parking. Trail is well maintained and can get congested at times during peak times especially during the weekend. It's a good work out going up along with coming down. Bring some water with you as someone mentioned earlier shade is minimal, and that goes particularly for those folks who brings dogs and kids. You'll enjoy it.
This is actually a great hike. I came up from Bronson canyon to the Hollywood sign. Your hike may originate elsewhere. It's a nice scenic climb and visibility was great in March. Amazing thing that this bit of wilderness is so close to LA.
There are many trails here and many places to start them but my favorite so far has been starting from the observatory and heading over the bridge and going up the mountain through the dirt steps and up to Dante's view before heading to the top of mount Hollywood, I've actually hiked up this mountain and down and around to mount lee where the actual Hollywood sign is along with l.a.'s communication tower, it's a beautiful sight with beautiful trails but it saddens me to see just how polluted my city now is.
There's at least twelve trails near and around the Griffith Observatory structure. What's pretty cool if you finished hiking just in time when Griffith Observatory opens. Then you can go inside to cool off, have a cold drink of water and clean restrooms at your convenience. The Observatory is free and they do have many presentations and exhibits all educational. The movie shows will require a fee. But to hike any trails and park is free. If you're not from LA, hiking any of the twelve trails become exciting because of the most famous sign in the world "Hollywood" is visible in all of the trails. These trails are clearly defined and wide. Before going to Runyon Canyon, everybody planning to do any of the Mount Hollywood Trail should start at Griffith Observatory. Afterwards do Runyon Canyon and you'll see the difference. Griffith Observatory is better overall... :)
Another awesome evening hike. I think Griffith park has the best (that I've done) views of Los Angeles and its surroundings at night. There are many trails, so do know your way around, best to go with a group
this is a really busy trail with alot of trash & graffiti every where. but its a nice easy short hike for good sights of the L.A. area
