The Griffith Park Merry Go Round Parking Lot. From the I-5 North, take the Griffith Park exit. From the 134, go to I-5 South. From the I-5 South, take the Los Feliz Blvd West/ Griffith Park exit. Then travel north along Griffith Park Drive (Crystal Springs Dr.) until the sign for the Merry Go Round tells you to turn Left. Park in the Lot and meet at the parking lot entrance. Description: Come join us for a 4 mile, 500' elevation gain hike to Amir's Garden. Come learn about an enterprising Sierra Club member who (almost) single-handedly created a garden in Griffith Park. Along the way, we'll walk through the Old LA Zoo and gaze up at Bee's Rock.
Bring 1 liter of water, sturdy shoes, sunscreen/hat, and a snack. NOTE ON DIRECTIONS TO MEETING PLACE: Please do not attempt to enter the park at any other point other than those specified in the directions to the Meeting Point. There is intermittent construction in the park just south of the LA Zoo and the road to the Merry-Go-Round may be blocked from the north.
Lock all valuables in your car!
This is a Sierra Club hike. Hence, you'll have to sign a waiver!
