    It was so nice to sitting in the mountain like a BENCH potato (not couch!!!) in this hot weather. I gained more calories eating all the food than burning fat, but WHO CARES?? I enjoyed the hike and always thank Lee and Scott!

      Next time we can go to Mt. Hollywood to burn off some of those calories! :)

    Great hike, fun people, i.e. status quo for LA Hiking Group. Without this group I would have no motivation to get up and move in all this heat.

  • Liese G.

    Sorry, have to cancel. Wanted to let you know so someone can take my place. I'll be there next time!

  • Zanobia

    Sorry won't be able to make it tonight. I ran Sullivan Canyon this morning in the heat so going to take it easy.

    August 30, 2013

  • Lee Z.

    I started with a limit of 40, but it crept up to 60 over time. We are limited in space up there - 2 picnic tables and not much land where you can hang. Typically over 40% flake, so that is why I increased the allowable numbers. Even still, there will be those who have no place to sit.

    August 30, 2013

  • Susan

    Someone can take my place. Sorry about the last minute change.

    1 · August 30, 2013

  • Jane

    Hope a space opens up for me :)

    1 · August 26, 2013

  • Shannon A.

    If you know you can not make it to this event, please update your RSVP to No. Give others a chance to attend. Thank you!

    August 30, 2013

    • Shannon A.

      Also, just to remind everyone that there are Only 2 picnic tables up there.

  • Lynda

    Shannon, where is Glendale overlook?

    August 25, 2013

    • Lee Z.

      We have more surprises coming up...the 3 of us go on special hiking trips to find new routes and new destinations. Glendale Overlook was one of our discoveries that was always there but never recognized as the golden jewel it is.

      3 · August 28, 2013

    • Lynda

      Yay!!!!!

      August 28, 2013

  • Shannon A.

    BTW... this hike is NOT to Glendale Peak.

    August 25, 2013

    • Shannon A.

      I know what you meant Melinda! I'm telling everyone since it was earlier brought to my attention that people might be thinking our destination is Glendale Peak instead of Glendale Overlook. Which is not the case.

      August 25, 2013

    • Shannon A.

      A lot of us say GP for Griffith Park...

      1 · August 25, 2013

  • Melinda

    I've always wanted to hike GP, and I hope that there is an opening!
    I promise to bring good treats :)

    2 · August 25, 2013

    • Shannon A.

      People always cancel on any hike, so you should be fine. Just keep an eye out.
