Family Fun Hike & Barbeque

Please, use the following coordinates  in Google Maps to find the meeting location :[masked], -118.285190. This location is Parking lot #2 just past the Merry-Go-Round in Griffith Park.

BBQ Fun and Hiking

Bring a healthy appetite for fun!

Bring the kids, the family, hikers and non-hikers. We will need someone to stay back at the picnic tables to keep the spot reserved while the others hike to Amir's.

See MAP links below.

Fee is $6 unless you bring an item and post it on the Spreadsheet.  See explanation below.

Meet at our usual spot at Griffith Park, Merry Go Round, Lot 2 at the stairs, see Lee's map below. We only put the Ranger Station because it is the closest address. There is no address for the parking lot. From the Ranger Station drive up the hill following the signs to the Merry-Go-Round. You will reach Parking Lot #1 (see the sign) and drive through it on the way to Parking Lot #2. You will pass by the Merry-Go-Round before you reach PL#2. You will find us gathered at the steps on the northern end of the lot.

Map Link #2 (expanded view)

Descend to the picnic tables just north of the parking lot at 9:45 AM to set up for the massive BBQ!

We would like to have 4 picnic tables reserved. (first come first served) Someone will need to stay with the tables while the others go hiking.

PLEASE POST WHAT YOU ARE BRINGING ON THE BBQ SPREADSHEET FIRST! Refer to the "BBQ SPREADSHEET" link BELOW to post your choice of foods and supplies. Those volunteering to stay behind, check the 2nd pg, titled, VOLUNTEER list.

$6 Dollar Rule means:.....

You MUST put something on the spreadsheet, and commit to bringing at least one item OR pay $6. This is mandatory to STAY on the RSVP list. For those choosing to pay the $6, (you will have to contact either of the 3 hike leaders hosting this event) the money will go towards the meats, poultry, or anything else needed that others do not sign up for. You will have until 8/04/14 if you choose the pay option.

On the spreadsheet you will see various food items, eating utensils, charcoal, grills etc. etc.....we will need a lot of items.Everyone must participate and bring something to make this work.

CLICK for BBQ SPREADSHEET

Around 10:00 AM we'll gather the hikers and set off for Amir's Garden.

This is an easy intermediate hike, (4/10), rolling hills, mostly fire road, with a set of steps in the middle to give us a total of 600' of vertical challenge.

Hiking time approx 90 minutes.

The non-hikers in the family will be near the playground for the kids or relaxing in lawn chairs with a cold drink.

We'll arrive back at the picnic tables around 11:30AM to start grilling and chilling in the shady, grassy area between the old zoo and the playground.

Spend the rest of the day with great food, cold drinks, relaxing and socializing!

BRING PORTABLE CHAIRS

Please keep dogs on a leash and clear from the picnic tables! If your dog isn't well mannered around people and food, please leave your pup at home or we will have to ask you to leave the BBQ.

    Thanks Shannon, I figured it was something like that .

    Shannon what's the $6.00 for?

    July 22, 2014

    • Shannon A.

      Somehow that part of the post was deleted and I explained it. I will put it back in. Basically it's to give people an option to pay if they don't wanna commit to bringing something. So it will help pitch in for the meats and anything else needed that people don't sign up for.
