How to Get There From the south side of Griffith Park, head north on Canyon Drive from Franklin Avenue. Once the road enters Griffith Park, it’s stopped by a locked gate at the trailhead. Park in the small lot at
the trailhead, along the street, or in the spillo
ver lot just south of the trailhead. Detailed driving directions »
Trail Condition Good. Most of the trail is on well-maintained and well-traveled fire road, with a bit of distance on paved road, too. However, there is very little signage along the way, and none of the junctions are marked – so make sure you study up before you hit the trail.
