North of Los Angeles and west of Glendale, the Griffith Park has 4,100 acres open to horseback riding. There are over a dozen horse trails rolling and winding through Griffith Park.

Griffith Park lies just west of the Golden State Freeway (I-5), roughly between Los Feliz Boulevard on the south and the Ventura Freeway (SR 134) on the north. Freeway off-ramps leading to the park from I-5 are Los Feliz Boulevard, Griffith Park (direct entry) and Zoo Drive. Approaching the park on SR 134 eastbound, take either the Forest Lawn Drive or Victory Boulevard offramps. From SR 134 westbound, take Zoo Drive or Forest Lawn Drive. After leaving freeways, follow the signs into the park.

Overall, Griffith Park is the 72nd most popular horse trail of all 81 horseback rides in California. Several of the better horse trails are nearby Griffith Park including Cuyamaca State Park, Chino Hills State Park, Topanga State Park, Heart Bar Campground, Hansen Dam and Stetson Ranch Park.
