Griffith’s Glow – Weekend Sherpa
Griffith J. Griffith believed that people gained an enlightened perspective on life when looking at the skies. So true! Especially when you gaze upon a glorious LA sunset from Griffith Observatory, that generous star buff’s gift to the city he loved. For a short path to enlightenment, take a late-afternoon walk up the 1.5-mile round-trip East Trail to the observatory. You’ll revel in the glow of the fading sun and the emerging city lights far below as you stroll a path that’s suitable for all ages and fitness levels. After you park, walk to Vista del Valle and look for a shaded picnic bench and a sign that reads “Boy Scout Trail”—it’s easy to spot the wide path from there.
