What we're about
Get out and enjoy nature around Hollywood! Runyon Canyon, Griffith Park, and Hollywood Hills. Walking, hiking, observatory, and fitness!! Hollywood is even more fun outside. See you soon!
2015 update! Please note, we rotate members based on how active you are. Our goal is to build a dynamic, engaged group of outdoor lovers and share hikes and stories. Waitlist is long! When you submit, describe your interest in attending hikes and available times; once you get accepted, please RSVP and join Meetup postings as the window is only a few months before we release inactive members and invite new ones. Thanks so much for your interest in the great hiking around Hollywood!
Hollywood is an eclectic place; tourists traps, cafes, celebrity homes, and great little neighborhoods. Perhaps the best part of Hollywood is the hiking trails. With views all the way to downtown Los Angeles and Greater Wilshire in one direction, and canyons in the background. This Meetup is setup to develop a group of hikers who get to know each other and have regular hikes.
HOW DOES THE 100 CAP WORK?!
Meetup recently changed the organization, pricing, and marketing strategies for Organizers, with more emphasis on small active groups and larger groups that have multiple activities. This is especially significant in Los Angeles where members have to drive long distances to attend meetups. To accommodate this change, we instituted new guidelines for the Hollywood Hiking Meetup here. Now we maintain a MAX membership of 100 active members at any given time. We understand some members get busy with other projects and become inactive over time, the idea is to keep the group focused on members who they can meet and make friends. We maintain a LONG waiting list ( > 200 ); when a new member is Approved, an inactive member is released. To remain active, please visit the Meetup page often, RSVP to upcoming hikes and events, and let us know if you want new events.
When you signup, please provide as much info as you like to tell the group more about you and your interest in outdoors fitness, especially hiking. We hope to learn from each other and develop friendships through this great sport.
