We decided to go here on the spur of the moment. The drive up the mountain to the observatory at the top is pretty. The park gets really crowded as it gets closer to sundown and it can be hard to find a parking spot near the top, so be prepared to walk. Once you get there, however, the view... More

Home to a family of dears and a pride of wolves, just up from the Greek Theatre and down the hill from Griffith Observatory. A great place to park and walk up the hill to the observatory if you don't mind a bit of a hike

We decided last minute to trek up to the top and we are certainly glad that we did! We walked the whole perimeter and we were able to see some breath taking views

If you're up for a good hike, the 3 mile trek to the Hollywood Sign is worth every effort!!! Do some research to locate the entrance, take a backpack with water & snacks, and go early. You really can get into nature in the middle of LA! The Batman Cave is supposed to be off this same path, but we... More

I went here on a Sunday afternoon it was a great experience and fantastic views over the city. The walkways through Griffith Park are great. However, I thought you could get a good picture of the Hollywood sign from Griffith Park but it is still quite a distance away. So try not make that mistake if you are looking to... More

The proper area is great and you get some incredible views. Please take the time to go. You can walk to the Hollywood Sign from here but please don't try. Nor can you drive across to collect the fools in your party who decide to persevere, so they have to walk back all by themselves!

You have to walk in because bikes and cars cannot go in. History history so many movies shot here, John Wayne, batman series and original Star Trek. All that aside it's beautiful with the caves and mountains. Loved the view of the Hollywood sign. If you can don't miss out on this spot. By far one of my fav's!!!!!

Best views in town! Great during the day and in the night. It is better to go there during a week days than on weekend when the crowd is huge and parking limited.
