Friday Evening Griffith Park Hike

Meet at the corner of Los Feliz Blvd and Fern Dell by the bear statute at 6:45 PM. At 7 PM, we'll start hiking to Mt. Hollywood (NOT the Hollywood sign). Bring 2-3 bottles of water for a 5-6 miles hike RT. Sneakers with good traction and a sweater or jacket because you'll come back in the dark. Hike is 1,000 feet elevation gain.No beginners or people out of shape.Hike isn't for beginners!

If you want to go back early, print out the map below. Don't recommend it!

Hike should be around 2 1/2 hours.

 

You'll see the sunset on this hike. We'll be coming back in the dark.

Park below Los Feliz Blvd. because you'll get a ticket after sunset (on Fern Dell Dr.).

 

Will need a sweep for this hike. Any volunteers?

 

If for some reason you get seperated from us, use the observatory as your landmark, Fern Dell is west of it.

    Thanks Scott for sweeping. Introduce yourself so I know who you are.

      No problem Ed. I'm a friend of Kirk Schneider. Also, I think you and I may have met a while back in the Outdoors Club.

    I have done hikes at Griffith before and even without a lot of natural moonlight, I have not absolutely needed a headlamp and that was going with one other person. Traveling with a group of people who do have headlamps, I wouldn't think it would be a problem.

    Guys,
    If you start the hike from Griffit Park parking lot, there is plenty of free parking there, you dont have to worry about parking and getting tickets.. Just a suggestion.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
