Mar Vista hill walking and dinner at the Pampas Grill in Culver City

Okay, folks, I'm changing up our West L.A. Wednesday night hike a little. This week only we meet at the Mar Vista bowl west entrance and hike our usual 2 hour, nearly-4 miler up and down the wide sidewalks in the neighborhoods on Mar Vista hill. Elevation gain is about 150 feet and we should see nice views of Venice beach and the city from the top.

 

MEETING SPOT: VENICE AND GRANDVIEW BLVDS.  PARK ON GRANDVIEW BLVD NORTH OF VENICE BLVD. NEAR THE MAR VISTA BOWLING ALLEYS. Watch out for the parking meters next to the bowling alley, which operate until 8 PM

 


OUR CRAZY TWISTED HIKE ROUTE:

Starts at Northeast corner of Grandview and Venice Blvds.

DINNER AFTERWARD:  at Pampas Grill, a buffet-style, pay by the ounce place, located in the "Culver Center" shopping area, 3857 Overland Avenue (between Venice and Washington Blvds. --a little to the south of the L.A. Fitness gym) -- ABOUT A MILE AND A HALF EAST OF THE HIKE STARTING POINT

    OMG... I haven't been able to go in a while because I have a music licensing class on Wednesdays but once it's over after March, I hope this route stays on your list of walks! Looks like a fun one and right in front of where I just moved into.

      We will be walking in a residential neighborhood, so dogs on leash are OK.
