WalkingGreat!

Great trail for a semi-long hike. Mostly flat. You don’t need hardcore hiking shoes. Beautiful views.

Beautiful views. Keep your dogs on the leash because we saw a couple coyotes. It started to get crowded around 8 am. There are a lot of different trails and we got off our trail a couple of times.

Nice uphill workout, wear sturdy shoes. Lots of people and discarded masks and water bottles on the trails :( I saw a coyote who didn’t seem interested in me at all.

An awesome hike. A few trails that were tricky to find.. once we made our own. Ha! Great views of the Hollywood sign, downtown, mountains sprawling.. a stunning warm February day. Be careful on Hogback- a bit steep and slippery on the way down.

Went this morning (1/12/21) at around 8:30am. Not many people. Good mix of uphill, flat, and downhill. The hogback is always great with amazing views! Because of all the uphill moments i would recommend wearing hiking shoes if you have them. Not necessary but definitely will come in handy especially on the steep incline of the hogback trail.

HikingGreat!

Busy, but beautiful views most of the way. Definitely recommend starting at the merry go round. That is where it’s easiest to begin and end the loop. Started around the Greek via another trail and it was a climb up. Great way to go too, but not as direct.

I spent nearly 7 hours today exploring a good chunk of land, it was well maintained even in the roughest parts. Good trail for both long and short distance.

It was great hike! It was moderate not easy but not hard either. We took a few bad turns and had to re route again but just pay close attention

HikingGreat!

I hiked this trail twice in December. It’s great. I recommend to go see the sunrise at Griffith Observatory it’s amazing. I saw coyotes at 6:45 am, awesome. Then you do this hike. You can follow the main path or switch directions and try a more « adventurous » path, which is really cool.

Best hike in Griffith for sure. The view from the top is expansive - go at sunset. You can start the trail from the old zoo/merry go round or the Greek or the observatory. Recommend the Greek entrance as it’s in the sun for most of the time whereas the merry go round side you’ll be shaded if going at sunset.
