June & July hiking schedule

Griffith Park - Summer is officially here and with it comes warm weather that is perfect for hiking! Ranger Ernie will be leading 6 different hikes in June and July and 3 will be night hikes!

The first hike will be a nocturnal adventure on Friday, June 24 starting at 7pm at the Ranger Station (4730 Crystal Spring Drive, Los Angeles 90027). The evening hike will be a 2-hour trek through Griffith Park. Pack your water, snacks and, since it'll be night time escapade, remember to bring a jacket and flashlight. Two more evening hikes will be available on Friday, July 15 and Friday, July 29. Same time and same starting place (Ranger Station).

Day hikes will also be offered on 3 Saturdays; June 25, July 16 and July 30. These 2-hour excursions are ideal for beginner hikers but are open to everyone. The hiking voyages will begin at 8am at the Griffith Observatory parking lot (2800 E. Observatory Road, Los Angeles 90027) and will be a 2-hour trek through Griffith Park.

Those planning to participate should dress accordingly and bring drinking water and snacks. For more information about any of the hikes, contact Ranger Ernie Ybarra at (323) 644-6661 or by e-mail at
