"OK everyone please be advised that there are three parking lots in the Merry-Go-Round area. Get there a little early and cruise all three parking lots if you're not sure where you are going, we'll find you if you get lost, no worries. " On Los Feliz, going east past Vermont you get to the stop light for Crystal Springs Rd.....turn left (north). You are now entering Griffith Park. Drive about 2 miles to the intersection where the Ranger Station is. You will see many signs....some with arrows pointing to the Merry Go Round. At this intersection you will turn left and go up the hill toward the Merry Go Round. Drive through the first parking lot (Parking Lot #1) and keep going to the next parking lot (Parking Lot #2), and we are there at the north end where the steps are located.
The Hike's Duration is approximately 2.5 hours with a possible Distance of 5-6 miles.
WEAR HIKING or TRAIL walking Shoes please. Bring water, walking sticks if needed, an extra pair of socks, aspirin, a friendly attitude and some niceness but most of all ... bring a LOT of Common Sense and patience for your fellow hikers, OK?
