Bee Rock

If you’ve visited the Old Zoo in Griffith Park (if you haven’t, you should!), there’s a sharp, fenced-in peak that’s juuust visible from the clearing. Good news! You can get there from here.

It’s easy to see Griffith Park every day and forget it’s there, but it really is a gem. It’s a huge public park, and there’s a lot of it to explore. It’s home to P-22, our very own mountain lion!

Most of the trail to Bee Rock is like this, wide and clear and really pretty. Getting to the peak is a bit of a scramble, though. Watch you have enough light and time to get through the switchy, skinny trails.

Getting to the top is so satisfying.

The top is dramatic and jagged and steep. I was pretty grateful for the fence, because it is a drop off that side for sure.

It’s a killer view of Glendale and Burbank back to the valley.
