National Trails Day is Coming to Griffith Park

On May 25, 2018

In recognition of National Trails Day, Friends of Griffith Park along with LA Rec and Parks is hosting a restoration project. We’ll be using natural vegetation as a deterrent to illegal trails that are cropping up throughout Griffith Park. We’re planting toyon, putting up fencing and moving brush to help in these efforts. For this restoration on June 2nd, we recommend that all volunteers wear hats, sunscreen, long pants and shoes with good tread. We’ll provide water but bring your own container.

According to National Trails website, events are held across the country to help promote awareness of the wide variety of benefits provided by trails, encourage people to discover their local trials, raise awareness of trail issues and instill excitement for the great outdoors.

We’ll shuttle folks up to the site or you can hike the short distance.
We’ll have staff at the parking location to direct volunteers and everyone is welcome to join in!
