PPLA Destination: Sunset Ranch Hollywood

With over 100 years of history, Sunset Ranch Hollywood is a must see destination tucked away inside of the idyllic Griffith Park.

Sunset Ranch offers slow moving horse trails with sweeping views of Los Angeles. The barn is home to over 60 horses and a plethora of volunteers who look after the animals. With a spattering of chickens and even a donkey and mini horse it’s a great place to roam around and check out, gives you a feel for nature after being trapped in the city for so long. Sunset Ranch’s views are unmatched and with the recent rains it will literally take your breath away. The ranch is known for its country-style getaway on a ranch offering day & night horseback riding tours & BBQ buffets! We haven’t gone up for a BBQ Day but it’s hitting the top of our radar list for special experiences in Los Angeles. There is something magical about being a tourist in your own city.

Many of your favorite films have been shot on location here including LA LA Land, and numerous fashion covers. Justin Timberlake shot part of his film Friends With Benefits here and ended up falling in love with one of the horses and purchasing him for his farm, back in his homestate of Tennessee.
