Griffith Shadow Loop takes you up the West side of Lovell Canyon for spectacular views up and down the canyon with Griffith Peak clearly visible ahead at the summit of Sexton Ridge. You’ll then descend into the base of Lovell Canyon, cross the central wash and experience the East side of the canyon. This trail is one of the best overall experiences of Lovell Canyon without serious climbing on the upper slopes. Use the Griffith Shadow Loop to get your bearings in Lovell Canyon for future wilderness exploration in the canyon’s upper reaches! Avoid mid-Summer due to high temperatures.
