“Very cool place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

Very cool place but only serves vegetarian/vegan food. Good for some but I want some sausage in my sausage gravy!

“Great place for a snack or breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Located just into the Griffith Park on Fern Dell Drive, this little eatery only offers alfresco dining. The pies are the best thing on the menu, either savory or sweet, and the location is second to none for a green and leafy bite in central LA.

“We make a point of going to The Trails.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

When visiting Los Angeles, we stay in the Silver Lake area, and we make it a point to go to Griffith Park at least a couple times per visit. You'll find The Trails just inside the park near the Fern Dell Drive entrance off Los Feliz Blvd. It's a small venue with great food and a very pleasant tree-shaded outdoor area where you can enjoy a cup of Stumptown coffee, read a paper, chat with family or friends, people watch, or relax after a hike or a visit to the Observatory. I've had their Ranger's Pie, Avocado Sandwich, Eggs-in-a-Basket, and a variety of baked goods (pies, scones, cookies, etc) and have yet to find anything that hasn't been fresh and tasty. Sometimes we've walked up to the order window and had our orders ready in minutes. Other times we've stood in the order line for 20 minutes and then waited another 20 minutes for our order, so here's my suggestion. Drive by and check it out. If the line is long, keep driving and come back later. By the way, it's cash only at The Trails.
