We'll go to 2 locations on this hike! The Batcave & Hollywood sign. At this location we can see the cave where the Batcar came out of and the Hollywood Sign--you can't legally touch the sign. It is fenced off. Meet at 3:30 PM at the parking lot, but leave at 3:45 PM. This hike is not for beginners. I consider it a moderate hike. It should be around a 3 hour hike. It has a significant elevation gain. You start at the bottom and hike all the way up on mostly wide fire roads. Meet at the VERY end of Canyon Dr.(Where the road ends). Go through the park. The hike is 6-7 miles and 1,000 elevation gain. You can exit the 101 at Hollywood Blvd., and take (go east) Wilton up and make a left on Franklin and make a right on Canyon Dr. Thomas Guide page 593 G2, G1. Bring hat, and suntan lotion, water (2 quarts) because this hike doesn't have much shade. This hike isn't for beginners! Sneakers with good traction are ok! I will not go at a fast pace. Light rain doesn't cancel hike. Heavy rain does. Hike may be postponed if it is too hot. Stay tuned.

Meet afterward at Bourgeois Pig Coffee Shop at 5931 Franklin Blvd. in Hollywood. It is between Tamarind & Bronson Ave. It is across the street from the Scientology Center. Leader may not be present for this. You'll have to find each other. There's some bars on this street.

Parking isn't good around here. :(
