Welcome to Outdoor Singles and Socials Meetup group!

I DON'T RECOMMEND CARPOOLING UNLESS YOU KNOW (AND/OR THEIR DRIVING) THAT PERSON!! There are some creeps in Meetup. :(

If you're a female and looking to carpool, you may write, "Seeking female carpoolers." Women should carpool together and never carpool alone with a guy you don't know !

You do need a picture to join. This group is for normal people. That means no creeps, weirdos, peeps covered all over with tattoos, no gangsters, people with mohawks, etc.

More info about the hikes: http://www.lamountains.com/parks.asp?parkid=102 Meeting Spot: Parking lot Map: Not many small or medium-sized cities can boast of three mountain ranges within its border, but Glendale, California, does. Stretching east and north from the San Fernando Valley, the city takes in substantial parts of the San Rafael Hills and the Verdugo Mountains, plus a small slice of the San Gabriel Mountains at the city's northern extremity. At this northernmost spot in Glendale, overlooking the foothill communities of La Crescenta and Tujunga, lies Deukmejian Wilderness Park, named after former California governor George Deukmejian. The park's 700 acres of chaparral-covered slopes are drained by two ravines with steep gradients: Cooks Canyon and Dunsmore Canyon. During the mid-20th Century, the area alongside the Dunsmore Canyon stream was used by the Le Mesnager family as a vineyard. An old stone barn at the trailhead is reminiscent of that time. Bring warm clothes and shoes with good traction. Bring 1-2 quarts of water. Directions: From Foothill Boulevard in Glendale, go north on New York Avenue to the dead end at Markridge Road. Turn left on Markridge Road and go 200 yards to the park entrance. Follow the entry road to the parking area.
