Super sweet hike right in the middle of our gem, Griffith Park! Gorgeous views for the majority of this hike. It is full sun exposure so be diligent with coverage and sunscreen. Steep incline for the first .2mi portion gets the heart going and, but is literally the roughest bit of the entire hike. This seems to be a less crowded option for those gorgeous downtown skyline and observatory selfies. Once at the top it's no joke....nearly 360* view of all of Los Angeles. Dogs are allowed on this trail, HOWEVER...PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be respectful of others and other dog owners on the trail...LEASH YOUR DOG! It's wrong to assume that every dog out on a trail is happy go sociable and wants to play or meet your pup. Also wrong to assume that all people enjoy off-leash dogs running up to them. PLEASE for your dog's safety and the safety of others....respectfully KEEP YOUR DOG ON LEASH.

Did this hike a few backs. It was nice, nothing special, nothing too challenging. Started this trail from the bird sanctuary and headed up, and I was making my round trip and then I noticed a sharp, nice challenging decline trail cutting the trail in half, but worth the risk at the beginning and then tapered off towards the end. All in all, a nice hike, not very difficult but a good one to check mark, So, didn't take the long gradual decline route and took the shorter intense route but well worth it. Give it a shot, and mark if off.
