15 Jul , 2022  

Night hiking is the best way to avoid the hot summer sun or to unwind after a day’s work. It’s even better if you can catch a sunset view above Los Angeles. Lucky for us, there are plenty of accessible and relatively quick easy options located in Griffith Park.

Here are 4 of the best night hikes in Griffith Park from longest to shortest.

1. Observatory Trails Peak hike | 3 miles

I highly recommend that you first explore a trail during the day so you’re familiar with the path before trying it out at dusk. After sunset, visibility is pretty low and so bring a flashlight or at the very least use the one on your phone.

Lastly, be aware aware your surroundings and hike at your own risk. You’ll likely encounter other hikers and it’s not unheard of to spot coyotes in the park.
