Griffith Park Hike & Potluck Dinner at the Top – Friday @ 6:00 PM

August 20, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm


What to expect:

A full moon Friday night hike with a potluck dinner at the top. The distance is approximately four to six miles roundtrip. The elevation gain is about eight hundred feet. This isn’t recommended for beginners or people out of shape. This is a moderate hike. If you get separated from us, call the Ranger Station at (323) 913-4688. Please tell the hike leader if you leave early. That way we know you are safe. We will be joining the Los Angeles Hiking Group. Some people in that group might be wearing skams. People are welcome to share information and encourage others to take off their skams in a kind and considerate way. Everyone must be treated with dignity and respect.


What to bring:

Shoes or hiking boots with good traction and water. If you bring a flashlight, red, green, and blue lights are preferred. All lights can be used if they are kept away from people’s eyes. Feel free to bring your favorite food item, dish, or drink to share with the group.



We meet at the “Park Ranger Headquarters” / “Griffith Park Visitor Center” sign. The cross streets are Crystal Springs Dr. and Fire Rd. It is across the street from the merry-go-round and tennis courts. There’s a stop sign at the intersection. GPS apps like google maps or apple maps may not be precise. Click the “Google Map” link below for reference. We will wait approximately 15 minutes and leave at 6:15 PM to meet the Los Angeles Hiking Group at 6:30 PM at the merry go-round-parking lot 2. There is free parking in the back parking lot. Rain cancels this event.


Please review our “Donate” page.
