After attempting to visit the hollywood sign we saw that the sunset trails were closed. But the park had a member if staff thee to assist and give us information of Griffith park. I wasn't too convicted by this park, but decided to give it a go. Parking was a case of finding a spot and dumping your vehicle, which... More

A very pleasant place to spend an evening watching the sun fade behind the hills. Be sure to pack a picnic and enjoy it on one of the benches available. Restrooms on-site outdoors as you approach the area after the carpark. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes because it can be quite a long walk from where you park your... More

The route we originally wanted to take was closed by the park so we headed up to near the observatory, parked on the road and headed up the many routes around Griffith park. The paths are dirt tracks, appropriate footwear is required. Great views can be seen of the LA basin and surrounding districts. There were many people on the... More

My ultimate LA experience, hikes, smell of local flora, views. Go by dawn, join the mexicans with their dine-ours in the park, contemplate on yourself, ths carzy town or your latest draft-that-will-be-blockbuster-soon. After that you go west-hollywood for drinks and food.

It's a short although some curves to get to the top. Once there it's nice to park and just walk around. Lots of trees for shade & bring a picnic lunch to enjoy. Lots of history and nice views day or night.

We started out at breakfast on the golf course thanks to a TripAdvisor review! Thank you... the food was great and so was the service. Then we took in a really nice short hike (Fern Dell) half way up to the Observatory. Maybe we'll make it to the top next time. The hike was along a babbling creek with shade...... More

What a fantastic place to overview Los Angeles. And the Hollywood Sign as well. The Mega-Metro at your feeds. Easy to access, very clean.

Th carpark at the top by the Observatory is a great location to photograph LA from a good vantage point, or the Hollywood sign. There are also walking tracks to get closer to the sign if desired. There is good parking and lots of rest rooms.... plus its free. Recommended for the views or to give the kids some fresh... More

You have to start early in the morning while it is not hot and there are not many people out there. Wear sneakers, bring water bottle and camera. Beautiful views of LA.

Although there is a severe drought and the park isn't probably at it's finest, Griffith Park is a lovely place to get away from the craziness of L.A. We visited the park on a few occasions and enjoyed the expansive and peaceful atmosphere. The L.A. Zoo is there but we were somewhat disappointed with that aspect. If you'd like a... More
