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
