    March 24, 2013

  • Eric James H.

    My vote is for Mt. Hollywood.

    March 24, 2013

  • edward

    Please no beginners for these hikes. These are moderate hike--can be very tough for beginners!!!! We hike all the way up to the top of the mountain!

    March 24, 2013

  • edward

    Lets take a vote. Hike to Mt. Hollywood or hike parallel to the 5 Fwy (the challenging trail). The hike to Mt. Hollywood will probably last around 2 1/2 hours.

      If you were at the ranger station, you were in the right spot. Next Friday, there will be more people so it will be easier to spot the group.
