Meet at 5 PM, but leave at 5:20 PM. What is more spooky than hearing owls and coyotes howling at night? We'll experience the spookiness of this--animal sounds not guaranteed. :(
We are going to 2 cool Halloween sites in Griffith Park!
1. Ghost Train Ride (videos:
2. Haunted Halloween Hay Ride. http://losangeleshauntedhayride.com/flash/index.html . We may or may not be there before it opens at 7 PM. We're not going on it.
We will do an approximately 4 hours hike ( we'll make a stop at the Hay Ride/carnival). It is approximately 7-8 miles RT and 700 feet elevation gain hike. We are meeting at LA Live Steamers below Travel Town (it used to be a Prisoner of War Camp during WW2 http://www.beneathla.com/go.cgi?=travel1 ) in Griffith Park.

Don't meet at Travel Town!!
Hike isn't for beginners or people out of shape!

Costumes and candy (to share) are optional. Leader will bring Halloween candy.
Bring 2-3 liters of water, sweater (get cold at night) shoes with good traction. Rain postpones hike.
THis hike isn't recommended for beginners or easily scared. Date may change. For parking, I recommend parking at the lot across the street from the LA Live Steamers, so you can get out of there quicker after the hike.
