Hollywood Sign

NO, Not a beginner's hike and the suggested time to arrive is 8:15 AM. Intermediate level - 8 miles or less round trip and under 3.5 hours. The Group will meet in the Observatory Parking Lot which is next to the Observatory. In front of the Mt. Hollywood Hiking trail post and sign. ' Remember ' meet in the observatory parking lot. Be aware: there will be cool weather heading to the Hollywood sign and a little warmer returning back to the parking lot.

The destination and the "amount of stops" are at the discretion of the Hike leader totally. However, The the main objective of this hike is to reach Hollywood sign and there will be no exceptions ... the Hollywood Sign is the initial destination. Get into the Parking Lot early because I AM LEAVING AT eight-thirty AM sharp maybe one or two minutes later. That's all the time I'm waiting ...

weather conditions:http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/los-angeles-ca/90027/weather-forecast/37860_pc Attention:There will be trails and some climbing but there will be definite Fire road walking in order to get to the Hollywood sign. this is a excellent conditioning hike for all of you@ an Advanced intermediate level that wants to get a little exercise and site seeing all in one. This is Not a Training event nor is this hike focused on conditioning directly. All are welcome to this family/friendly environment Dogs, brats and crybabies are welcome, yet if you're a know it all, speed demon or minion ? .... Not today, not this hike. " In Deeds we trust ! "

Wear hiking shoes or trail runners, 2 pairs of socks, bring a good attitude, water, sunscreen, camera, and some snacks, I may get hungry ....

    Sorry, I couldn't come -- sick; I decided to keep my sniffing, coughing a_ _ at home. Will catch up with you when I return from Phoenix; I intend to hike while in Phoenix so I will be ready for your "Death Marches" upon my return. I just didn't think I could keep up with you today. Once I get healthy --- BRING IT ON!!!

    This is an intermediate hike based on meeting the designated goal: the Hollywood sign and not on a timed schedule yet, the time will be kept in strong consideration for I will not go over the maximum time posted. "NOTE", the suggested time to arrive is 8:15 AM at the meeting location for this event also, The Pace, destination and the "amount of stops" are at the discretion of the Hike leader also ... " Mr. Deeds rates me as an ' A' for Hike Leading .... "

    This is a slower paced Intermediate "social hike" yet, because of the inclines and the distance, I labeled it as a Intermediate Hike. so if you're a speed demon ... please don't start whining !!!!
    With the help of Ranger Lee, everyone you should really enjoy this hike now .... Cheers.
