The Wisdom Tree

November 5, 2014 — Leave a comment

Visit the Wisdom Tree at Griffith Park for a short hike with epic views. Watch the sun set, the city lights come up, and the moon and stars come out. The summit boasts a 360 degree view and single tree visible from the surrounding trails and peaks.

To get to the trailhead and avoid the maze of Hollywood Hills roads take Lake Hollywood Drive from Barham Blvd. Follow this road through the neighborhood until you see Wonder View Drive heading east. You can’t park on Wonder View, but there’s plenty of free parking on Lake Hollywood. No passes or permits needed (although there’s no parking between 9:00 pm and 6:00 am every night).

Park along Lake Hollywood Drive and begin your hike heading east up Wonder View Drive. The road ends at a gate and then you’ll continue a short distance on a dirt road.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 11.34.16 PM

You’ll pass a water tower to the left and a power line tower straight ahead. Wonder View Drive continues and a single-track trail splits off to the right. Head up this trail.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 11.37.20 PM

You’ll see a prominent, newly-placed plaque commemorating the land’s protection and listing off some of the donors who chipped in to save it. The trail begins here and really doesn’t waste any time in starting its climb.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 11.37.28 PM

The trail is easy to follow but there are several rugged areas with pretty steep drop-offs. The dirt is your usual, loose San Gabriel slick, so take your time on the descent to prevent slips.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 11.38.14 PM

You’ll ascend almost the entire gain of the trail before you even hit the first mile mark – it’s about 743 feet of gain in 0.78 miles. But while you’re hiking up you’ll have amazing views of Griffith Park.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 11.37.46 PM

If it’s clear, you’ll also be able to see downtown Los Angeles and the Griffith Park Observatory sneaking out from behind the front range.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 11.38.23 PM

As you approach the top of the ridge, the trail splits and makes a sharp turn to the east on a ridge towards the Cahuenga Peak and a sharp turn to the west towards the Wisdom Tree.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 11.38.35 PM

There’s a short spur trail that will take you to the ledge, where you’ll find shade, amazing views, and a fun geocaching with messages.

Don’t miss an epic sunset at the Wisdom Tree!

Creatures and Hellish abominations of Apocalyptic proportions are waiting in this 6th year of the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride.

10304570_10154626157935158_6920206027018309959_n

The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride has become an Iconic Hollywood tradition that remains unparalleled and unmatched. This year, the extended trail is back bringing an entirely new twenty-five (25) minute experience to those who think they’ve “seen it all.” Armies of demonic forces and dark presences litter the grounds and are frantic to strike at their favorite “hayriders.” This year’s sets are truly spectacular as the creative team takes on new special effects challenges not yet done in the live haunted attraction realm that will make the most unique haunted attraction in LA a show stopping vision of Haunt, Creep, and Bone Chill.

Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 9.09.55 PM

The gibbering of mad men echo through the twisting halls of this insane asylum turned Temple to the Apocalypse. The Revelation scriptures scribbled on the walls, etched in deep by broken and bloodied fingernails. With the pages of Mystics in the hands of Psychotics, the inmates have crowned themselves Unholy Vessels of the great Horsemen, and sit in judgment of your flesh in the bowels of their House. They themselves, “The Horsemen” will be there in character, each room of their house embodying the four elemental apocalyptic terrors: Pestilence, War, Famine, and Death. Stand before them in judgement.

Don’t miss what FOX, NBC, CBS, ABC, MTV, G4, E, & Access Hollywood, have called “Terrifying and Awesome,” and Dread Central called “one of the most amazing spectacles I’ve ever seen in all my years of attending haunts.”

Get outside and into the open summer air for Shakespeare In The Park presented by Independent Shakespeare Company LA. Located at the old zoo in Griffith Park, this is a great event for friends and family to enjoy featuring fantastic plays under the stars.

575

ISC was founded in 1998 by a group of actors who shared a passion for classical works. They were intent on rendering vivid productions of Shakespeare’s plays. Their focus was stripping back the conventions of contemporary theater and placing their attention onto the spoken word. Shakespeare produced his plays without lighting, without recorded sound, and without elaborate scenery and costumes, as do they.

556992_10151407959795628_902472189_n

One of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies tells the story of a kingdom in disorder. Its rightful leader is banished, a young man is denied his due by his malevolent elder brother, and a woman is exiled from the place that has always been her home. All of their paths lead away from the “painted pomp” of the court into the heart of the forest of Arden. It’s a place where natural laws outweigh the laws of man and the force of love reigns supreme. As bitter winter passes into the bloom of spring, the residents of Arden discover that transformation is always possible, and sometimes the disguises we wear are the best way to discover who we are.

This ISN’T your 9-year old son or daughters’ camp, and “Happy Trails” will be a figment of your imagination. This camps only desire is to ruin you! CAMP AT YOUR OWN RISK. The Great Horror Campout (GHC) is a “choose your own adventure” overnight, interactive camping experience. 

10151324_630684370357319_7864388239956001389_n

Campers can decide how extreme of an experience they get by their choice of activities. Certain tent sections or activity zones labeled as “Chicken Zones” will be milder while everything else keeps campers “FAIR GAME.” However, whether it’s to participate in the “Hell Hunt,” use the restrooms, or walk to a movie screening, even campers who want to sleep or hang in their tent with friends will find themselves having to go into the dark sooner or later. Should you find that you just can’t take anymore or feel a little dribble of urine heading down your inner thigh, you can always shout the safe phrase “I WANT MY MOMMY” and we promise the nightmare will end. Although we can’t understand why anyone would want it to.

468624_454540494638375_1561799913_o

Lasting 12 hours (8:00 pm – 8:00 am), campers will find themselves confronting every fear that haunted them as children. Campers will have the opportunity to meet a plethora of species that were only thought to have existed in legend.

GHC 1

Dinner and breakfast will be served. There will be a buffet style dinner (chili, salads, pastas – vegan appropriate) and a continental breakfast (coffee, bagels, etc. – vegan appropriate).

Great Horror Campout is suitable for adults 18 and over. There will be suitable time for sleeping, however the residents of the woods never sleep. It is a high scare, high startle content experience. There will be no refunds after a ticket is purchased and a patron has entered the campsite.

The Los Angeles Haunted Hayride is back for another fright filled Halloween season! Ride aboard a tractor-pulled wagon with a group of friends in the Haunted Hayride or venture into the mortifying In-Between maze or visit the Purgatory Side Show…if you dare!

The folklore and legend of “the real” births more terror than any horror mastermind can fabricate. The grounds of Griffith Park and beyond have been home to murder, torture, paranormal activity, serial killers, and abduction. The area surrounding the “Old Zoo” and “B Rock” has been called one of the most paranormally active sites in all of California. Now these and other actual events will come back to life at the Haunted Hayride, opening the portal to a river of lost souls that scream for revelation. They are dark. They are vicious. They are all around you.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 6.38.31 PM

The hayride calls on the hauntings of the real terror in history to rise from the darkest corners of hell to take possession of you. The ride is immersive with elaborate sets and characters throughout.

While playing in the woods surrounding the Old Zoo, the Clifton Twins discovered a strange playmate – a little boy named Aleister. The boy had no family, no one could understand how he had survived. He would barely speak, and if he did, he preached a dark religion he had learned from the presence in the woods. Soon, he gathered a flock of followers, the Clifton Family included. And on that faithful night, when all perished in a horrific church fire, Aleister’s black eyes glowed against the flicker of the match.

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 7.06.39 PM

Tonight, Aleister and his followers have returned to mark you as a witness to the prequel of past years. Examine the darkness he brought onto the community and what occurred before that fateful night the church fire killed the whole village. Ride along as you explore the powerful hand of cults.
