About the Hike

   While Los Angeles has a reputation for congested highways, it also has the most parkspace within city limits.  Seth is going to take the group on an exploration of Griffith Park, starting at the Carousel and ending at the abandoned zoo.

   Seth will take you on a tour of the east side of Griffith Park. (About 5 miles) The group will visit some great spots in the park like Beacon Hill, Bee Rock, and Old Zoo Picnic Area.  Meet at the large parking area near the carousel. The 96 Bus has a stop near there too, so those mass transit folks can get to the trail pretty easily as well.


 Lunch Option

   After the hike, enjoy a picnic lunch at the abandoned zoo with Seth, and festival founders Josh and Joel.

Lunch is provided by
