  • I love to jog these trails and play tennis over at the beautiful courts. We're really lucky to have this great resource in the middle of our city! - James
  • It's not just a view - panoramic LA city and Hollywood sign. They have a really mild hike and great exhibitions in the observatory. You can enjoy both day & night! Free parking! Great LA sightseeing!

  • Vista Del Valle Drive is a road on the southeast corner that is now closed to motor vehicles. This is a fantastic bike route that leads to a lookout to LA, Santa Monica and even the ocean on clear day
  • There's a great hike for out-of-town visitors. Starts near merry-go-round. 360 views of LA and Valley from the top, plus great views of Hollywood sign. But beware...a long uphill!
  • Come early for better parking
  • Hikes are amazing. Bring the dogs, plenty of water, and good shoes.
  • As LAs largest historical monument, it represents the untamed qualities of the West--canyons, river plains, caves, low-lying slopes--and it provides the 1 thing hard to come by in most cities, space.
  • "Take nothing but photographs...leave nothing but footprints"
  • Did you know? In 1882, Colonel Griffith J. Griffith purchased Griffith Park for use as an ostrich farm. He later gave the city 3000 acres, after supposedly seeing the ghost of the lands first owner.
  • Find the Batcave
  • Leave the city behind and explore the dusty terrain! Plenty of hiking trails, seek out the old zoo grounds, marvel at the Hollywood sign, discover the stars and city view at the Griffith Observatory.
  • Find a trail and walk up a mountain. There are some amazing views of DTLA.
  • Bucket list- CHECK!
