The hike is on the Charlie Turner Trail and goes to the top of Mount Hollywood. We meet at the trailhead which is at the far end of the Griffith Park Observatory parking area.
Starting at the Charlie Turner trailhead, this hike is 2.5 miles with an elevation change of about 1000 feet. The views are great. On a clear day, you can see Catalina Island. Great views of the high rise buildings in downtown, Century City, Westwood and the Miracle Mile. Parking is adjacent to the trailhead. The parking lot is used by visitors to the Griffith Park Observatory. Get there early to ensure close parking. Parking is available on the roads leading to the parking lot but the walk to the trailhead will all be uphill! There is no fee for parking or to enter the park.
