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 and the Santa Monica Mountains. There are many hiking trails in the area for all types of hikers.

Nice hike in the city!

Lots of horse poop on this trail and not a lot of shade. There’s also not a lot of parking.

such a wonderful hike with an amazing view

Steep and rocky, good idea to bring poles to take strain off the knees. Go earlier than 8/9 am before the crowds and bring a light sweater, hat and sunscreen. Great views 360 of LA and backside view of the Hollywood sign.

Enjoyed this trial with my dog. Pretty easy but loved the view at the top. Went in early feb so it wasn’t too cold or too hot.

Did this hike early in the morning. Great workout.

Short, but sweet. Came early and parked in the first lot to the right. Free parking. Ton of people walking/hiking with their dogs. The trail is off to the right, but if you miss it and keep going straight there is a map and it’ll direct you back. There is one entrance into the cave, but three exit points! Pretty cool.

Great hike with great views, obviously very popular so there are always a lot of people especially on the weekends. Definitely worth trying.

This an 8.26 mike hike, not a 7 mike hike. It also gets confusing when you get to the zoo area because you have to cross the parking lot and the grassy lawn to get the the crosswalk in order to get to the other part of the hike, which is where most of the horses go. We loved the first part but once you follow the side of the road then behind the Autry, it get boring.

Great view of Hollywood sign. I’m glad I’ve tried it.

Fun hike with my dog, the view at the top of the summit is beautiful!

Fun hike that everyone should do!

This is honestly an extremely under rated gem at Griffith. You can take the long way or the somewhat intense steep “stair” path up to enter this bio dome-shaped garden teeming with beautiful colors and geometries of all the exotic flora that have made their residence there. On the borders of the meandering trails weaving through the garden, breathtaking views of the lush valleys, open sky, and the city views on the other had us at loss for words as we felt like the curious Alice who had just stepped thorough the looking glass.

It is a good place to hike, normally we start at 5:30 am, this year january and february are not cold.

Steep but not too long. Wear good shoes and a hat......

Nice hike easy, dog friendly. Lot"s of people at dawn so pretty safe to hike at night. Amazing view of LA.

this hike was an absolutely wonderful way to spend a beautiful day took my little dog this time and he was a real trooper.I would rate this hike as moderate because we didn't stop at the observatory instead I decided to keep going to the summit of Mt Hollywood, not to be confused with Mt Lee which is where the Hollywood sign is.The 360 degree views are incredible, as is checking out the observator would be a great place to take friends from out of town,or your own staycation day trip and if you park on ferndell you won't have to pay 4 dollars an hour parking!Pack a lunch,water,and sun block.

So beautiful. I like it.

I started at Los Angeles live steamers, up Rattlesnake trail, then Condor trail to the park and up to Amir's Garden. I enjoyed the hike there and back. The destination is very pretty.
I was just a bit put off by dog owners not leashing their canine companions.
The lack of trail etiquette bothers me. Other than that it was a nice hike. Total trip out and back wad close to five miles.
