Griffith Park is one of the largest urban parks in all of North America, and the second-largest city park in California. The area is famous for its Hollywood sign and Griffith Observatory, and for its spectacular views of downtown Los Angeles. There are many hiking trails in the area for all types of hikers.

This was a great trail but not easy. The first 2 miles on the east side of the trail is really nice but after that the 1600+ elevation gain was pretty steep at times -- I wouldn't recommend it for small children or beginning hikers. I noticed a lot of the 5 star rating were by hikers that went out and back but didn't do the full 6.8 full Loop.

Very interesting hike! Good workout!

Great trails up and down the mountain! I love Griffith Observatory so this one was a real treat. The hike isn't too demanding and is mostly flat on the way to the top. Would have liked some tree covering on the trail, because it was so hot the day I hiked, but it was still worth it. Highly reccomend this hike to anyone who's never been to Griffith Park/Observatory, and to any one (like me) who's new to LA. Don't forget to bring sunscreen!

Love the trails and views... wish we didn't have so much pollution so we can see the city line
