Sunset Walk & Talk Events

Each month the Observatory offers a sunset hike lead 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.
