Address: Fern Dell Nature Trail, Griffith Park, CA
A magical rainforest 2 1/2 miles east of the iconic Chinese Theater. One of the most tranquil nature walks in LA. Within the half-mile trail you’ll see a redwood tree, natural spring, crayfish, turtles, butterflies, and wide variety of lush plant life. Once you exit the trail, continue up to the picnic area, playground, restrooms, Griffith Observatory, or The Trails – a super charming cafe across the road; serving delicious pies, pastries, sandwiches, coffee, and more.
