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!
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:
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!
