What you'll do

I will take you on a short but scenic hike and we’ll visit one of LA’s most unusual spots - the long ago abandoned Griffith Park Zoo. Some say it’s enchanted, others say it’s haunted, and everyone agrees it’s unique.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ACCESS TO THE OLD CAGES IS ONLY POSSIBLE ON RARE OCCASIONS.

The entire experience takes about 45min

I’ll educate you on the history of the zoo as we go on a waking tour to view what remains. You’ll get a chance to explore the exhibit spaces used in days-gone-by to display exotic animals.

Please note that this is a short tour through Griffith Park and the old Zoo. There won’t be any animals. If you want to see a real Zoo you can visist the actual LA Zoo after the tour is over.
Other things to note
We’ll walk for about 45min. Medium fitness level required.

I am from Austria and I have loved hiking my entire life. I'm fluent in German and English and have lived in Los Angeles for almost a decade. I am passionate about exploring and discovering new mountain views. There are hundreds of exciting trails and mountains across Los Angeles. This iconic Hollywood hike happens to be one of my favorites, and I'd love to share my city with you.

He was very knowledgeable and kind, didn’t get to really see much of the abandoned zoo due to certain entrances being closed off but he took us on another scenic route which was amazing. He is very patient and he is passionate about what he does I recommend this tour.
