if you take the stairs it's pretty steep but it knocks off a lot of distance some pretty good views from up top also

Short hike, but there's a stair option to the right near the beginning of the trail which is pretty steep and a great leg workout. Took about 20-30 min to get to the garden using the stair route. Nice shaded area at the top with benches, a couple picnic tables and even a water fountain.

I hiked this with my mom, girlfriend, and 3 dogs all ranging in different sizes. We went on a hot day, I believe it was 98 degrees outside. 2 of the dogs were fine, but one of them did not drink water the whole time so I was getting nervous about her, she's fine though. The hike was all uphill and in the sun the whole time, but when we got to the top it was so beautiful. There was even drinking stations for horses. There were different levels in the garden. I'm unsure if there is a trail that leads down from the levels of the garden but we ended up walking down a water run off thinking it was a trail. This hike is a great beginners hike for people who are trying to get back into it.

Great little hike. One big hill and the rest might as well be flat. Cute little garden with great views and lots of little nooks and crannies to explore.

One part is super steep but the payoff is worth it. The garden is beautiful.

Nice payoff for a short hike. Great for trail running or a good workout, the first few hundred feet are super steep.

Open fire-road type trail with a "secret garden" in the side of the hill.

Always a win especially in spring after rains and in early fall with warm clear views.

This was a great workout. The stairs are a good climb and then I ran down the dirt road to the bottom and did it about 4-5 times. It was a good think to do after work. And the sprinklers came on and it cooled me down!!

Busy during the weekends, very light during the week. I use this trail for a starting point, it leads to all trails in Griffith Park. Would love to be able to run to the top one day:)

Ah I love this hike! I wouldn't really say it's a hike until you get to the rocky part and the rope but the only bad thing about this place is the walk before getting to the trail. The trail itself is beautiful, little rivers and nice trees. The waterfall is so beautiful! You can actually climb the side of it but that's a risk because it's extremely slippery. Not a fall you can swim in but it is too beautiful to not see. I love this hike!

This place was so pretty! It's not long but it sure works out your butt! Haha it is really nice up there with the benches and the trees and sometimes you can see horses.
