This is a two part hike. Both parts combined is about 7 miles. Part 2 we will go at a faster pace, and there are more stairs and steep hills.
Part 1 is a good hike for beginners and newbies. It's a moderate paced hike through Fern Dell and the staircases west of the Fern Dell entrance to Griffith Park.
Walk #32 - Fern Dell and Immaculate Heart
Distance: 2.1 miles Stairs: 193 Difficulty: 3
Part 2. is basically Walk #29: Los Feliz- Griffith Park Loop but we'll take the trail to the Observatory and then down Vermont to the stairscases below the Observatory, then back to Fern Dell.
A moderate paced stairhike means we'll wait for people at the top of staircases. If you're intermediate or advanced, this hike will be pretty easy for you. This isn't a good beginners hike. But, by signing up you are responsible for keeping pace with the group.
