This place is fantastic since you get to see the whole of LA smog permitting. We didn't have the time to hike or bike through the park so had to drive which was a shame. Will definitely bike through this park later. The grounds of the park are very nice.

We need we wanted to do a hike but weren't sure where to go. We decided to go straight for the good stuff and took an uber to the Caheunga Peak trail head and started from there. It was no easy hike, mostly uphill on steep rocks and uneven ground. Once we got to the top by the wisdom tree... More

A very pretty park with a lot to offer. Stop into the Visitor Center to find out what is going on. We were there at a time when a special bike race was in progress.

We spent a couple of hours here hiking but will definitely be back to hike the trail that starts at the observatory car park to the summit of Mount Hollywood. We took some great photos just before sunset and then at night from the observatory. Make sure you are wearing good walking shoes, bring water and a jacket (if going... More

If you want panoramic views of Los Angeles and a great view of the Hollywood sign, go to Griffith Park. Absolutely stunning.

We have taken our children there many times. They first started out on the walking ponies then graduated to the trotters. Now we are taking our grandchildren! ! What fun. We have shown then pictures of their mother riding the same (Almost) ponies. Everything is the same. From there they ride the miniature train which is next door. From there... More

I had family come in from out of town, I decided to take them to the Griffith Park and the Observatory. It was a wonderful day for a picnic and walking. My family was thrilled to see such a wonderful large park with so much to do and so many trails.

I've hiked a couple of different trails here -- it's a good spot for some exercise that leads to the beautiful observatory and fantastic view of Los Angeles. I believe there are 6 trails? It's an uphill climb, and you should wear appropriate shoes. I saw a girl wearing high-heeled boots and struggling -- that is just silly. This is... More

It was our first trip to L.A. and we went to a LOT of tourist attractions. The Griffith Park and Observatory were by far the most impressive. I'd definitely return here again. It was clean, beautifully landscaped, safe, and offered some of the best photo opportunities. For hikers, there are a lot of trails that you can take and I'm... More
