Camp Rd & Griffith Park Dr, Los Angeles, CA
Note new meeting place: We're beginning this Moonlit hike from the Wilson Harding Golf Course Upper Parking Lot. Please see directions below.
Moderate hike to a vista in the park (~4 to 5 miles RT, ~1100 ft elevation gain); share goodies on top. Leashed well-mannered dogs welcome. Gather at 6:45pm and sign waiver sheets; hike begins at 7pm and lasts around 2 1/2 hours. (Waiver form is separate from those used for the regular evening hikes.)
No beginners or tigers, please. (Tigers are superfast hikers who wouldn't be satisfied with a moderate pace.)
What to bring: Bring water, a light jacket in case it gets cold, and a snack or small dish to share. Hiking boots/shoes are recommended. Flashlights are optional; many leaders discourage their use except in emergencies. (If used, colored lenses such as red help preserve others' night vision).
Directions to Upper Lot at Wilson and Harding Golf Course: From Los Feliz Blvd just west of the 5, take Crystal Springs north into the park. Continue past a freeway on-ramp and a 4-way intersection with the Ranger Station. At the next stop sign, make a left onto Griffith Park Drive. After passing some parking lots and a few quick bends, the road goes between the golf course and the hills. About .3 mile from Crystal Springs Drive, the road bends to the right, the (closed) Camp Road appears on your left and a parking lot appears on your right; this is one of the parking lots for the golf course. Across the road, straight ahead, is a road that goes up to two more parking lots. We'll meet in the upper lot.
