We'll hike on Green Mountain from the Florida Lot and have great views of the city lights during the hike. The hike will be approximately 3-4 miles with 800' of elevation gain depending on conditions. After the hike, those interested will enjoy a 5280 Restaurant Week dinner at the upscale Simms Steakhouse (click on link for menu/prices).
Please note the details about bringing appropriate gear and in case of bad weather in this Meetup Group's Welcome description. The weather is mercurial this time of year, so on the day of the hike if the weather is questionable be sure to check the website or call or email the leader (cell# will be sent to those who've RSVP'd) to confirm the hike is on. You may need traction devices such as Micro Spikes or IceTrekkers. Bring a headlamp or a flashlight. Dogs are welcome on this hike, but they must be on a leash and you must pick up after them. If you join this hike, you are agreeing to this waiver.
Directions: We're meeting at the Florida Lot of Green Mountain/William Frederick Hayden Park, on the west side of W. Alameda Pkwy (across from W. Florida Dr.), about 1/4 mile north of the Alameda/Jewell intersection in Lakewood (do not go to the Utah Lot which is a little south of the Florida Lot). Click here for a Google map with directions.
