Hike Historic Griffith Park with Casey Schreiner
Join Casey Schreiner, founder of Modern Hiker and author of “Discovering Griffith Park” — the first in-depth guidebook for the park — on a guided hike from Fern Dell to the summit of Mount Hollywood. Learn why Griffith Park is the greatest city park in the country and meet other experts along the way!
The hike will be about 5 miles from Fern Dell to Mount Hollywood, and is rated Moderate Difficulty. We will be on the wide fire roads but there are some steep sections of trail. Please note that the guided portion of the hike ends at Charlie Turner Trailhead. From here, you can join additional programming at the Griffith Observatory, take the DASH or Parkline to other parts of the park, or walk down to the Greek Theatre or back toward Trails Cafe and Fern Dell on your own. Be sure to wear hiking shoes or athletic shoes with good traction, and bring water, snacks, sunscreen, and sunglasses or hat.
