I liked driving to the Observatory, parking and walking up a nice wide trail to the Hollywood sign. Not sure how far it is but definitely more than a mile. Great views of LA. There is a "Beware of Snakes" sign at the base of the trail but I didn't encounter any.

I have been t L.A. many times. This was my first visit to Griffith Park. The planetarium is well worth a visit.

Great park in LA... head up to the top for great views! Take your camera or a bottle of wine for sunset.

Griffith Park is Los Angeles's answer to the large city park and it doesn't disappoint and contains more than the casual observer would expect, the Bronson Caves (where the old Batman Bat cave was) is a fun side hike, as well as the observatory, horse rides, children's locomotive and houses concert venues, a Western Museum and the LA Zoo.

Definitely do some research or stop by the ranger station to make sure you don't miss any of the hikes, views or local secrets.

Walking from Hollywood up to Griffith observatory was well worth effort to see the amazing panoramic views of Los Angeles.
