If you are familiar with the park: Make your way to Merry-Go-Round Lot #1. Park anywhere. Before you pull into the lot, you will see Griffith Park Storytelling Series signs attached to the trailhead. After you park, walk back out to the road and to the trail head. Follow the signs to the Hidden Amphitheater. It is a very short and easy 5 minute hike from the lot. 

Detailed Directions: Make your way to Los Feliz Blvd. and turn onto Crystal Springs Drive into the park. We will have signs along Crystal Springs to assure you that you are headed in the right direction.
              Continue straight through the first stop sign, which is the turn-off for the 5. 
Soon, you will reach another stop sign. We will have a sign up here, and there will likely be many other signs up as well. The Ranger station is to your right, but you will turn LEFT, following signs for the MERRY-GO-ROUND.
              At the top of the hill, turn right into the parking lot. This is Merry-Go-Round Lot #1. Park anywhere. Right before you make the right into the lot you will have seen the trail head and signs for the Griffith Park Storytelling Series. After you park, walk back out of the lot and follow the signs to the Hidden Amphitheater. 

Once you park, walk back out to the road, through these white and red striped poles, up the hill towards the trails ahead.

After 50 feet or so, there will be a series of trail just off the paved road to your left. We will have a chair up at this juncture with a sign to point you in the right direction. (Take the trail to the left)

Stay on the main trail to the right. We will have a chair and sign here as well to point you in the right direction.

There are tiny new plants growing all along the trail!

See you there!
