The Giving Tree

One of the things I love most about living in Los Angeles is all the hidden, quirky things to do and see. The  Giving Tree in Griffith park is one of those things.
Off to the side on one of the hiking trails theres a huge, beautiful tree with a red box inside. People leave all kinds of notes and wishes in it for the Giving Tree. Here are the directions if you ever find yourself in Griffith Park! :3

  1. Off of Franklin turn left on Canyon Rd. or right depending on which way you come from….
  2. Follow Canyon Rd. until you reach the gates to Griffith Park. Keep driving until you can’t drive any further…
  3. Start walking the trail…
  4. You are on the right track when you pass the dragon on the right. Kudos to the artist…
  5. Keep on past the potential kickball field on the right…
  6. Ahead you will see a small brook…I don’t recommend drinking the water.
  7. Follow the path as it winds around…if you look up you will see the Hollywood sign…admire.
  8. Keep walking but go slow because the view is quite pretty.
  9. The trail seems open at this point but keep going… just as you go around another corner on the right, on the side of the cliffs edge you will see a tree…the branches are overgrown and touch the trails path. Look for the red box and you have reached “The Giving Tree”…
  10. Give it your thoughts and prayers or anything laying heavy on your heart. Then twirl… Peace and Love!
