Fruitluck - Griffith Park #3 - Saint Patrick's Day!

The LA Marathon is happening same day so please plan accordingly (street closure & detour map). The course route will begin to be cleaned and reopened to normal traffic in a rolling manner. As soon as the start line clears, crews will start cleaning the route and reopening the streets.

Durian:
Our supplier was out of de-shelled & de-seeded durian in 1lb sealed containers. Instead we'll have 31lbs of whole durian to share with each other until it runs out for a $7 cash donation per person.


Weather: Low 70's, partly sunny. Dress warm for sunset.

Chat & enjoy the outdoors while sharing lots of
whole fresh ripe raw preferably organic, heirloom and/or exotic fruits & shoots or an 811-approved dish to share. You can pre-pare your fruit, but it's MORE fun to cut it up at the Fruitluck.

The Berlin Forest is reached via the Mt Hollywood Hiking Trail, as is the summit of Mt Hollywood, Griffith Park's second-highest peak (1,625' elevation). On clear days, the entire LA basin is spread out before you, from the San Gabriel Mountains to the Pacific Ocean! Sometimes Mt Baldy (San Antonio), Mt San Gorgonio & San Jacinto Peak can be seen! Sunsets are terrific from the summit! Sunset at 7:03p.

Directions:
1) Park in Griffith Observatory parking lot: 2800 E Observatory Ave, LA. May be crowded, may have to park on road.
2) Walk to "Mt Hollywood Hiking Trail: Charlie Turner Trailhead" sign (see pic below) at north-end of lot (farthest from Observatory).
3) Walk-up trail.
4) Berlin Forest immediately on left.

Parking lot may be crowed, but it'll be worth it! See you all on Sunday, loves! - Apryl

    I might not be able to make it, so I changed my RSVP to no. Have fun everyone!

    Anyone want to meet me earlier (let's say around 11 AM) and do a hike before the fruitluck begins?

    The new location is probably to far for me to walk. Anyone going by Los Feliz (Russell and Commonwealth)? I could use a ride.

    Definitely come! We eat lots of fruit and get merry in the sunshine. We talk and bond, love and hug. Please join.
