Awesome trails. Bring plenty of water for the dessert heat. Almost no shade the entire trail, so you'll wanna bring plenty of sunblock and a hat.

The thing I like about the Griffith Observatory trail and connecting trails is you can choose to take the more vertical shortcuts rather than walk around the loop. I feel some burn in my butt cheeks. Then if I feel lazy afterwards, I can just walk the trail.

It's super dog-friendly as well, though almost all dogs I've encountered have been off leash. That said, I haven't had issues.
