Lots of creepy old abandoned cages and confines to see. The stairs leading up to Amir's Garden is a great way to get in a quick cardio workout.

Ugh. Started from travel town and hiked along the trail next to the road through Griffith. Was fine for a while. Then you are dumped out in parking lot mess and tons of people. The last half of the hike you are hiking down the stupid horse trail not 5 feet away from the roaring freeway. Don't do the loop. Go back through the park and stay away from the freeway, unless you like breathing gas fumes. The zoo is cool is a depressing graffiti way. Why do I still live in this city?
