Music Box Stairs-At the intersection of Vendome and Del Monte (one block south of Sunset, one block west of Silverlake Blvd.)
Vendome is tough to see when driving on Sunset. If you're on Sunset Blvd; go to the intersection of Sunset and Silver Lake Blvd/Parkman and turn south, which is going towards Cafe Tropical.
Turn right onto Silver Lake Blvd.
At Marathon-which is a light, turn right.
Turn right at Vendome- which is the first right. About 2-3 blocks and you will see the Music Box stairs on your left.
You may want to look for parking on Marathon and walk to the Music Box Stairs, about 2 blocks, since parking near the stairs is limited and tough to find.
Parking: Parking is free street parking. BUT, it is limited and tough to find. You may have to walk a few blocks to find parking. Please give yourself enough time to find parking.
Please arrive at the bottom of the Music Box Stairs at 4:30 pm for introductions.
Walk starts promptly at 4:45pm.
Fast, workout type pace.
We will finish this walk within 1 hour 30 mins.
If you are not able to keep up with the group, you are on your own to get back to the starting point.
No crashers. Please just don't 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.
Always bring water and lots of it.
Dogs are welcomed but must be on a leash at all times.
There are NO restrooms at the start of this walk.
Any questions or concerns please email me, David.
Hope to see lots of new members!!
