    Nice, not too challenging hike from the observatory to a great viewpoint of all of LA, the Hollywood sign, and down to the observatory. You can continue hiking up a more challenging trail to get an even better view. On a really clear day, you can see the ocean and islands! We often try to get to the top around sunset, so that we can see all the city lights on the way down.

    A tour of Griffith Park in the hills above Los Angeles is especially exciting when done on horseback. This is a great stop for animal-lovers on a tour of California's coast.

    at 3pm we were able to get a nice hike in without the sun burning us alive, and also since we live in so.cal a nice breeze was hitting us as we climb up a short cut route. That route felt like an endless stair master, my legs were like jello for about 2 days!
    Btw, careful coming down it does get quite slippery so walk closer to the ground to avoid any crazy blood spill - i, was the unfortunate few fell just standing still too!

    Also going up you will see a latter, looks intriguing from down under but trust me the view up is pretty much the view you get coming down the mountain, the difference is when your coming down those shaky ladder it does get your heart going so be CAREFUL!

    You can rent horses here for a nice ride. In Burbank. The LA Zoo, Greek Theater, Griffith Park Observatory are here too. This is a nicer part of Hollywood, the Hollywood Hills/ Los Feliz area, Burbank.

    I've been coming to Griffith Park for many, many years now. I am still discovering new wonders each and every time. It's a great place to hike, run, hang out with the family, people watch, play golf, picnic, and photograph LA life. The vistas from the top of the hills are gorgeous and second to none. Yes, LA is a big city and we do have a lot of craziness to deal with on a daily basis. So why not come here once in a while to unwind and just soak in the view?

    Beautiful Los Angeles city views along the Griffith Park trails. See the Hollywood sign and Griffith Observatory! Long, wide, challenging trails. Free parking was found along the roadways near the entrance of the park. Proper footwear recommended. Get family and friends together for a nice hike up historic Griffith Park!

    Also check out the biking routes in the park.

    Griffith Park has so many wonderful things stored inside it: the observatory, which is an absolute must at night; great hiking trails; the LA Zoo; the new Autry Farmer's Market; and even a few restaurants hidden in there. I love taking a tennis ball to the park and throwing it around with friends, and even acting like a little kid by climbing trees. Proof that Runyon isn't the be all-end all of hiking areas in LA!

    This is one of my favourite spots in LA for escaping the oppressive smog cloaking the city. Drive up, park the car and have a picnic, followed by a stroll up to the observatory. A rare green oasis in a city otherwise dominated by freeways and honking car horns.

    Launched with a gift of land from Colonel Griffith to L.A. in 1896, Griffith Park now sprawls across 4,310 acres in the Los Feliz area, with 53 miles of trails through sage scrub, oak, and woodland forest. The park should look familiar as it has appeared in films such as Rebel Without a Cause and Back to the Future, and it’s the site of the hilltop Griffith Observatory, with a 300-seat planetarium. The Greek Theatre hosts outdoor concerts, and the park’s highest point, Mount Hollywood, delivers sweeping views of the valley.

    You can hike up to the Griffith Observatory or see the Hollywood sign. Having a final destination in your hike adds the fun of reaching it. Great park to hike alone, as a couple, or with a group.

    Great place to hike! This is the place to go if you want to get in a good workout while having a conversation with friends. If you like exploring, there are a lot of hiking trails here that have yet to be discovered. And once you get to the top, the view is breathtaking!

    We hiked a bit through Griffith Park right at sunset and it was spectacular. The light in California is so bright and golden and being there right when it was at it's most beautiful was amazing. The park was stunning to walk through and I would happily visit again.

    Great park with everything you could ask for - tons of hiking, playgrounds, picnic areas, horses, pony rides, trains, a museum, the LA zoo... Too much to do, too little time.

    The short Fern Dell trail is beautiful. Check it out if you've never been. As a resident of LA, Griffith Park and the Observatory are some of my favorite places to visit.

    LA's own Central Park - I absolutely LOVE it. This is a great place for anyone! I usually enter the park from the Burbank side off of the 134 at Victory or off of Los Feliz Blvd. near Western. There are thousands of acres for your outdoor pleasure. Tons of cyclists and runners. This may be one of the very best areas for long distance training, without the hassle of tons of street lights, stop lights and traffic.

    Pony rides, carousel, choo choo train, golf course, LA Zoo, Autry Museum, Observatory, Farmers Market, TONS of hiking at any elevation you wish, Trails (great place to grab a bite to eat), tons of lawn space to picnic, bbq and relax.

    We often see coyotes and deer on the golf course.

    This is an amazing place - not to be missed.

    Plenty of parking - everywhere and it's free!

    They do tend to have a lot of construction going on in various different areas of the park and often after dark, expect a delay while driving in/out at times.

    MOVIE SPOT! The merry go round is where they've filmed many scenes from lots of films, including FACE OFF (Nicholas Cage) and BEAUTIFUL (Minnie Driver). GREAT place to wander around, have a picnic or BBQ with friends. There are hiking trails and lots of trees for shade. There is a little kiosk where you can buy drinks, sandwiches etc.

Description

These four public courses are located inside of the city's largest park, and each course comes complete with its own distinctive challenges. The Harding course is more scenic and has considerably more natural hazards including trees and water. The Wilson course requires longer drives but not as much accuracy in the approach to the greens. All courses are very reasonably priced. Amenities include a clubhouse, locker rooms, electric carts, club rentals, a snack bar and a driving range.
