The Griffith Park has breath-taking views of LA, this has to be one of the best places to see aerial views of Los Angeles and vastness of LA. You can see Downtown LA, the new city, Hollywood Sign, and much more from here. You can take picture of Hollywood sign pictures from here, I had to queue to take the... More

It's vast, it's beautiful, there's activities for all ages like horse back-riding, mini train tracks, hiking trails, observatory, picnic area, a zoo and a great view of LA from the top! It is also free to go in unless you want to watch one of the shows at the observatory, go on a horse back riding tour, go to the... More

Not really wilderness... But hiking the paths there was enjoyable and energizing. We enjoyed the landscape and it's easy to see why there were so many folks there! Didn't do the zoo this time, just enjoyed the desert/mountain nature trails. We'll go back!

Griffith Park is a great place to visit because there is so much to do. You can hike in the hills, visit the Observatory, the zoo, golf, ride the merry-go-round- even see a concert at the Greek.

On the way to the observatory you can stop in a nice area of the park to relax, and enjoy a nice hike in the well said in others review: " One of the Greatest Urban Park if the World ". Also from the observatory you can hike other parts of the park, enjoying astonishing views of the city !!

Why wouldn't you go to one of the best hiking, viewing and walking parks in LA. You will probably recall about a zillion movies and tv shows that have used the park as a backdrop.

Griffith Park is massive. From the Observatory on a clear day you can see for miles around. A good hiking spot with many trails and chance to see some wildlife too - the odd coyote and mountain lion if you are lucky. Best of all its free!
