Mt. Lee

NO, This not a beginner hike and the suggested time to arrive is 8:15 AM. Intermediate level, 3.5 hours, 8 miles or less round trip. The Group will meet in the Merry-Go-Round Parking Lot 2, next to the Stairs. which is past the Merry Go Round and it is 500 yards AWAY from the Park Ranger Station. Remember meet at the stairs in parking lot 2. Be aware: there will be cool weather heading to Mt. Lee and a little warmer returning to the parking lot. weather conditions:http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/los-angeles-ca/90027/weather-forecast/37860_pc

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 Mt. Lee and there will be no exceptions ... Mt. Lee is the initial destination. Get into the Parking Lot early because I AM LEAVING AT eight-thirty AM maybe one or two minutes later. That's all the time I'm waiting ...

There are three Parking Lots in the area, Drive through all of them until you see a set of Stairs:

There may be few trails but there will be definite Fire road walking in order to get to the top of Mt. Lee where we will see the Hollywood Sign from the back, which is the biggest attraction. There will be trails and some climbing but there will be definite Fire road walking, 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 ....

    It was a steady rain, and 9 of us hiked for 2 1/2 hours....it was glorious. I would have to say it was more fun than a kick in the pants with a broken foot.

    On this Hike and possibly the complete New Year of 2013, I will not be able to keep up with everyone. It takes away from the complete group and it is unfair to the group as a whole. so, even though I may be moving very slowly ... I will not be playing sweep. Its up to you to keep up with the group.
    ---- Thank you
    and Blessings to you !

      Well, if you come out on the hike just keep talking to me and Ranger Lee, let us know how you're feeling through out the hike. This isnt a Grunt Hike, so you should be OK. However, Next week may not be good for you though .....

    Ohhh yeah, this is the only Hiking group that hikes in the rain, heat or snow ...

  • Lee Z.

    I read "chance of rain". Joe will not cancel on such weak forecasting. However if it is coming down buckets on Saturday morning, Yep.

    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 !!!! This "social hike" hike based on meeting the designated goal: the Historic Mt. Lee and not on a timed schedule yet, the time will be kept in strong consideration through out the hike 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 ... " the Legend Ranger Lee and the honorable Mr. Deeds grades me with an ' A' for Hike Leading .... "

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
