Fern Dell Trail
2150 Fern Dell Drive
This scenic and shady walk on the edge of Griffith Park starts on the west side of Fern Dell Drive, near the intersection with Black Oak Drive. You follow a man-made creek replete with shade loving vegetation. After a short interval (about a quarter of a mile), the path crosses under Fern Dell Drive and soon after you exit the garden. From here you can continue for a short hike (about a mile) uphill to Griffith Observatory. If you are braced for the continuous mile going uphill, this is actually great low-stress way to access the observatory. There are two branches of this trail up the ravine, making it feel like more like a loop.
