This hike is on rain or shine. If it does rain, which looks very likely, we'll do a 5 mile hike around the Silver Lake Reservoir.
A note about the waitlist. There is a limit of 40 members for almost all walks. Anymore than that, just makes the walks too slow.
People on the waitlist will get moved up until the day before the walk. I have found that most people have made other plans while on the waitlist, so that's why I don't move people up starting the day before the walk.
BUT, if you are still on the waitlist the day before the walk, and can make the walk, please post a comment that you can make the walk and if there is room, I'll move you up!
It's March Madness time and, yes, I'm winning Warren Buffet's $1 Billion Perfect Bracket challenge! But, in the mean time we'll march to the famous Music Box steps from Lamill Coffee. The steps from a Laurel and Hardy episode, where they tried to push a piano up these steps!
This is a great "then and now" video of the Music Box Steps.
This is a tough hike, 6.5 miles and 23 staircases and we'll go at a fast pace. So, please only sign up if you're able to keep up!
Please arrive at Lamill by 10am for introductions
Walk will start promptly at 10:15 am!!
Walk will take about 2.5 hours.

Pace- Please be honest about your conditioning level!
We will walk at a fast, workout type pace. This mean we do not stop and wait for people at the top of staircases and there will not be any rest stops. We do not run.
You are responsible for keeping up with the pace of the group.
If you are unable to keep up with the group, you are on your own to get back to the starting point.
Print out the map of the route, in case you aren't able to keep up with the group.

All walks should be treated like a work out. They are not guided tours!
No crashers- Please sign up for this event. Please do not just show up.
RSVP limits are set, because I don't want a huge group on these walks. So, if you RSVP only for yourself, don't bring a guest.
Please keep your RSVP updated and current. Repeated No Shows may lead to members being removed from the group.
There usually are no restrooms along these walks. Restrooms are usually only available at the starting point of the walks.
Always bring plenty of water.
Always wear running/tennis shoes. Open toed shoes are not a good idea for these stairs walks.
Any questions or concerns please email me, David.
