So many hikes to choose from. I enjoy the Amir's Garden hike trail. There are easy to hard levels of hikes to choose from too. Beautiful views and untouched greenery. You will enjoy with friends and family. Lots of parking too.

A drive or walk, the view is beautiful, get a break from city life and just sit here and mediate or relax with mother nature at her best!

First Date? Family outings? Fitness kick? This place is perfect! Hiking trails, or the observatory or both? Either way you cant go wrong here. Just make sure to bring a coat if your coming during winter, and be prepared to walk a lot. But definitely an LA Must!

We had a good time and the park has many things to do I guess we were looking for something more like the parks in the east. It is nice but mainly a driving park you can't walk to it from anywhere.

Griffith Park is a great scenic drive up to and through with breathtaking panoramic views. Do keep your eyes on the road while driving and look out for the other guy! Stop along the road at designated locations, bring a bag lunch and enjoy a cozy romantic picnic. This is one of the Free attractions that provides great vantage points... More

I took my 2 year old recently to ride the ponies. She loves it. They also have a train for the kids to ride. It's very cute and cheap. $3 for a pony ride. $2.50 to ride the train. The zoo, observatory, The Gene Autry museum and a bunch of hiking trails and picnic areas all around.

Hike up during the peak day hours but was an amazing view to see down the entire city despite the hard walk up

We went there just before Christmas and it was quite impossible to reach. The road up to the observatory had a lot of traffic and people were parking their cars on the road and walking. That was not a possibility because I had a young child and old parents. We left the car when we finally achieved the top while... More

Wow! This was amazing! Check it out! The building was open and there is more to do than meets the eye, because so much is actually underground. I went during the day time, and want to come back at night!!!

I live directly below Griffith Park observatory and for the last year have had the great pleasure of getting to know the area. Having lived in Los Angeles for nearly 30 years, I really hadn't spent much time in this area before moving here and had only been to the observatory once. Don't miss going to the observatory at night!... More
