Friends of Griffith Park Debuts Anza Trail Map
by Bernadette Soter, Friends of Griffith Park
This August, Friends of Griffith Park developed a new resource to commemorate the park’s special place along the Anza Trail.
A new map and brochure, The Anza Trail in Griffith Park, is available at the Griffith Park Ranger Station. The piece shares the story of the Anza Expedition colonists, including the Feliz family whose land grant would become Griffith Park.
The map, which highlights several Anza Trail landmarks and loop hikes within the park, represents the next chapter in the partnership between Griffith Park and the National Park Service.
Since Fall 2011, Friends of Griffith Park has worked with the NPS Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program and the City of Los Angeles to identify and enhance Griffith Park’s portion of the trail.
More than 100 hikers, including Sierra Club members, joined Friends of Griffith Park and Anza Trail Ranger Hale Sargent for an evening hike Aug. 13, 2013
