It is a holiday, so lets hike! It is the first day of 2013! You'll go on a little known trail in Griffith Park. Bet most of you haven't been on some of these trails--the entrance is hidden in a residential area. It is a scenic part of Griffith Park. Hike is 4- 5 miles RT with[masked] elevation gain. It should be around 2 hours. It is a moderate hike. We'll hike to a pine tree forest (most of you have been here). We'll take a break there.
Meeting spot is corner of Crystal Springs & Los Feliz Blvd--the entrance of Griffith Park. Meet in front of the statute of Mr. Griffith.It is across the street from the water fountain. There is street parking.Meet at 2:30 PM and leave at 2:45 PM.
Rain cancels hike. If it is sprinkling (ground not all wet), we may still do it. I'll let everyone know. If ground is all wet, it is cancelled.
Many movies have been filmed at Cedar Grove Forest. Here is 1 from Star Trek: http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Griffith_Park
