  • This location is shown only to members

Gals On the Go! (series) Semi-Beginner and Beginner level: Level 2/3  Hiking/Incline Conditioning, under 5 miles round trip and under 2.5 hours. There will be one major Incline. the goal is to condition your body to inclines. This is a timed event. The Group will meet at the Stairs. Wear hiking shoes, trail runners or Running shoes, Bring 2 pairs of socks, bring a good attitude, water, sunscreen, a thin jacket, Mp3 player, camera, at least 10 dollars in cash and some food for me, not the other wild animals. Cheers !

Park in the Lot above above and to the West of the Merry-Go-Round. There are three parking Lots. the first one is parking lot one and the one Next to the Merry-Go-Round is parking Lot three. The Stairs are in Parking Lot 2; "Be advised the Parking rules are stricter in the Fern Dell Area, but not in the Merry-Go-Round area." If you miss this group there will be a 6:30 PM Hiking group for you to attend that will meet in Parking Lot Two on the other end of lot 2, Thank you.

Attention:There will be Inclines, trails, fire roads, paved roads, one shot at climbing, NO jumping, some jogging,trotting and some fast and slow walking. The destination and the "amount of stops" are at the discretion of the Hike leader totally. Our Focus is to CONDITION. Therefore, to do this requires Time, Distance, Inclines and Consistency ... This Group is great for the preparation of 5K Walking Events, Rehabilitation of injuries and beginner hikers preparing to move up to a level 5 Intermediate or more Hike.

" This will not be a RUNNING, TRAIL BLAZING or Death Marching EVENT.

    I'm confused; sorry. I got an email stating a change of venue. Was this actually a clarification of the same venue? Are we meeting in Parking Lot #2 at the stairs? Thanks!

    Tuesday is opening day for the Dodgers. So if you have to drive by Dodger Stadium, you might want to take into consideration this might cause extra traffic/delay. The game is at 7PM.

    Homework ... look for a Cross training Cardio Activity ladies, Biking, Walking and or Swimming. Zumba and Salsa counts if you do it a min of 2 hours/ twice a week.
