    Table of contents

    Hiking the Amir’s Garden Trail is a lovely experience in Los Angeles that will take you through a peaceful ornamental garden. While out on the trail, you will climb slightly uphill through a nearly 5 acre oasis that was constructed over the course of several decades by Amir Dialameh. Make sure to wear comfortable hiking shoes in order to better traverse the trail.

    Route Description for Amir’s Garden Trail

    If you are visiting Griffith Park in Los Angeles and want to take in a small piece of paradise, then you will want to explore the short, albeit beautifully scenic, Amir’s Garden Trail. This lush greenspace was an all-volunteer project that Dialameh worked at for decades, which is an impressive feat considering the barren state of the landscape prior to its transformation.

    Setting out from the trailhead, you will make your way to the west and begin climbing uphill towards the ornamental garden. Take your time through this stretch to truly appreciate the beauty of the lush landscape that can now be found here.

    Keeping right at a fork, you will begin to head downhill towards Griffith Park Drive, following the trail as it bends back to the southeast for a return into the trailhead.

    Getting to the Amir’s Garden Trail Trailhead

    The trailhead for this hike can be found at the parking lot on Griffith Park Drive, just south of the Wilson and Harding Golf Course clubhouse.
