  • Jen X.

    Hi Edwin, I never hike this side of GP. Just wondering how is this trail compared to Mt. Hollywood thru Razorback trail in terms of elevation? Would that be a sweeper for the slower hiker like me ? :) Thanks

    March 2, 2014

    • Phil

      Jen you have nothing to worry about, this trail is easy compared to what you did at Ice House a couple of weeks ago.

      March 4, 2014

    • Jen X.

      Hi Phil...thanks for the encouragement. You were such good cheer on the Mt Baldy hike. Appreciate it!

    Just realized this hike is the day of the LA Marathon. May be difficult to get to the park if you are coming from the south, due to street closures.

    1 · February 23, 2014

    • Jen X.

      Yes....that would be the way I take. Thanks Edwin.
