Start the New Year with Amir

  • Griffith Park - Merry Go Round Parking Lot 1

  • Celebrate the start of a New Year with a cool hike to Amir's Garden. This is a 4 mile round trip 500 feet gain hike through Griffith Park to an Oasis built by a Sierra Club member.

    Meet at Noon (for those who want to sleep in a bit or watch the Rose Parade) by the bent tree trunk at the entrance to the first Merry Go Round parking lot.

    Bring comfortable shoes, hat, 1 liter of water, snacks to share.

    This hike is relatively easy, until we get to the stairs that lead to Amir's Garden. Then it's a short uphill trek similar to going up 10 office building stories. We will take our time on this segment of the hike. The return is all flat or downhill. 

    Rain or Fire Cancels 

    Bathrooms near the Trailhead. Please don't wait until you get to the Garden.
