Description

The Lower Beacon Trail begins as a divergent trail from the Coolidge Trail near Griffith Park Drive. From here, the trail trends north along the eastern hillside of Beacon Hill, momentarily switchbacks, and then heads north again while paralleling Griffith Park Drive.

After a little over 6/10 of a mile the trail will start to bend west. Continue running for 8/10 of a mile to reach the end of the trail at the Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round. From here you can retrace your steps back to the beginning of the Lower Beacon Trail or connect with other Griffith Park trails to extend your run.
