Ascent Trip Report

My first time in Griffith Park. Beautiful day and amazing views. I can see why my buddy who lives nearby runs these trails all the time. Lots of people near the observatory and Hollywood sign of course, but otherwise not too crowded which is to be expected on a Wednesday. Wouldn't want to be here on the weekend. A good warm up for the bigger hike I would take on the next day.

I parked in one of the spaces across the street from The Greek Theater. They are free as long as there is no event happening. Walked south on Vermont Canyon Road, turned right on Vista del Valle, then immediately turned right and headed up the Boy Scout Trail to start my hike.
