You can go up from Los Feliz boulevard and turn onto Griffith Park Drive. Park and walk up into the canyon. Keep driving up and you'll reach the Observatory. This place has so many hidden treasures including a hidden garden that will knock your socks off!

Hiked through Griffith Park to the observatory - what a hike! Dusty and uphill. Would have been much nicer if we had planned for it. Would have loved to visit the Greek Theatre but did not have time, beautiful spot though.

Stop by the ranger station and get your map…there's 50+ miles of hiking in Griffith Park! We did the Bee Hike behind the old zoo cages. It was really nice and nobody was there! We were really surprised about how nice the park is and the hiking!

Griffith Park is a great place for people of all ages. The adults love the views and the beautiful scenery and the kids love to play and see the trains. The train ride was.the biggest hit with my toddler grandson. It was a very relaxing, fun day for all.

Not only are the grounds wonderful, but the Observatory has some of the best views of the city. The Planetarium has entertaining/informative shows, the museum is first class. But that view!!!

Invigorating and fun trail for locals and visitors. A top then LA place to visit. The best way is to arrive as early as possible to get a good parking spot near to the trail starting point.

Great park, went early and parked at the bottom and hiked up to the observatory. We hiked with the kids and would advise caution as they were slipping all over the place on our way down the hill. I had to help a woman who fell over as the sandy soil was very slippery. Otherwise a lovely way to spend... More

Was an awesome trip to the park with my girlfriend. We intended to just see the observatory but decided to hike around for a while and it was totally worth it! Really awesome place to get outdoors close to the city combined with awesome views of the city and mountains.

Although the path to the Griffith Park is not easy for runners - a lot of hills - when you reach the top you will realize the efforts is valid. This is best skyline of LA.
