Sunday Evening Hike!

  • March 10, 2013 · 4:00 PM
  • Merry Go Round Lots

Our regular Sunday evening hike around Griffith Park getting some exercise and enjoying the great conversation, company, and cool views. Come join the fun! smile

The hike runs 2-2.5 hours and about 4-5 miles. Bring water and a long sleeve shirt, sweatshirt, or jacket if you get chilly easily. Optional accessories include camera, munchies, etc. And dogs are welcome!

Park in Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round lot #2 and we'll meet on the south end, which is the opposite end from where the steps are on the North end. For those of you that haven't been there before, here's a Google Maps link to lot #1 that you can get directions from:

Map Link

However, the easiest way is to get there is to take the Los Feliz/Crystal Springs entrance to the park just off the I5 freeway. Go North on Crystal Springs into the park. At the second stop sign you'll come to a four way intersection. The ranger station should be on your right. Make a left at that intersection, go up the road a little bit, and you'll be forced to turn right into merry-go-round lot #1. Just drive through lot #1 and down the road a little ways and you'll be in lot #2. We meet at the South end.

I'll send my cell number to those coming an hour or two before the hike, so if you can't find us or are running a little late you can call and we'll wait a few minutes for you.

See ya there!

      Hi Mana! Tks for the offer. Turns out I can't make it after all =/ FWIW I think leaving at 3 from MB might be cutting it a bit close. Enjoy the hike!

    My, how time flies! I hope that everyone remembered to set the clocks forward one hour for Daylight Saving Time.

    We might be able to see the comet after sunset: http://www.griffithobservatory.org/exhibits/special/Comet_PANSTARRS.html

      Ed, thanks for the link! I look forward to seeing the comet soon, but because we will have put the clocks ahead one hour for Daylight Saving Time (starts Sunday at 2am), we’ll probably be back down before sunset.

    Hi Bob, I wanted to bring 3 Guests but it appears I can only add two. Is that correct?

    March 4, 2013

    • Bob

      I changed it. You can add three now. :)

    • Mana

      Thanks Bob! But now one friend became injured and the other is sick. So I will wait to see if I need space for my other friend, thank you! :)

    Hi Bob,
    I'm new to hiking, would this be a good start for beginners?

    March 4, 2013

    • Bob

      Yes! You'll get a workout, but most people can do it. :)
