Griffith Observatory via West Observatory Trail
This is an easy out and back trail to Griffith Observatory in Griffith Park.
This trail goes by Berlin Forest.
This is a highly-trafficked hike in Griffith Park, for obvious reasons: it's easily accessible, it's not that difficult, and the reward at the top is stunning views of the city.
Continue past the Observatory to the Berlin Gardens and some welcome shade). Or carry on for another mile and a half to Mt. Hollywood.
The hike up to the Observatory is a great one for kids. Just be sure to bring sun hats and water on hot days.
