Trojan Hike: Hollywood Peak (Amir's Garden)

  • pin Griffith Park Golf Shop 4730 Crystal Springs Dr Los Angeles, California 90027 (map)

This will be an out-and-back hike up to Hollywood Peak. We will pass through the beautiful oasis of Amir’s Garden on our way to and from the peak. This garden is a refreshing spot to stop and get out of the sun. At the peak you will get 360-degree views and see the Griffith Observatory, downtown Los Angeles, the valleys, the Hollywood Sign, and (if clear enough) Catalina Island!

PLEASE be prepared with plenty of water and if you are doing the full hike, please bring a snack or light meal. Also, please do not litter on the trail. There is almost no tree coverage, so please wear a hat and sunscreen.

PARKING: There is plenty of parking at the upper lot at the golf course (across the street from the clubhouse). PLEASE arrive on time. We will begin to meet in this upper lot 15 minutes prior to departure. Fight On!
