Sunset Walk & Talk

Wed Jan 16, 2019
Various times
7 and up
Free

Each month the Griffith Observatory offers a sunset hike led by a park ranger and museum guide. The hike starts on the Observatory West Terrace, proceeds up the Charlie Turner trail to the Berlin Forest on the hill just north of the Observatory, and then returns to the West Terrace.

The distance covered is about half a mile over the course of an hour at a very moderate pace with stops along the way to discuss the highlights and history of Griffith Park, and objects visible in the evening sky. NOTE: The Charlie Turner trail is a moderately steep earthen trail and footwear appropriate for hiking is recommended.

The start time varies throughout the year.
