Welcome to the Group-Beechwood Canyon

Newcomers ONLY: RSVP will be open to newbies-those members who have attended 3 or less events, ONLY until Tues. August 5th.  After that, if there is room, it will be open to all members.  If you're not a newbie, please do not sign up until after August 5th.  Your RSVP will remove. 

Please join your fellow stairclimbers as we climb the stairs in Beechwood Canyon!   Walk #34 Beechwood Canyon is one of my favorite walks in Fleming's Secret Stairs book. We will take a short side trip to see Lake Hollywood.

Since these "Welcome to the Group" walks tend to have a large crowd, please RSVP only if you intend to come.  Remember the no show policy of the group!

Distance: 3.2 miles including a hike down to see Lake Hollywood.
Steps: 861
Difficulty: 4

"This is a vigorous hike through Hollywood history, utilizing some of the steepest and most charming staircases in the city, and affording breathtaking views from Downtown to the sea."

Starting Place:

Beachwood Cafe
2695 N Beachwood Dr
Los Angeles, CA 90068

Start Time:

Please arrive to Beachwood Cafe by 10 am.

Following introductions, the walk will start promptly at 10:15 am.


Plenty of free street parking near Beechwood Cafe.


All walks should be considered a workout.  These are not guided tours or a stroll in the park.

Moderate pace.

We will finish this walk in about 1 hour and 15 mins.

Walk #34 has a lot of steep staircases.

You are responsible for keeping up with the group!  If you're not able to keep up with the group, you're on your own to get back to the starting point.

Dogs: Dogs are welcomed on the walk only.  Dogs must be on a leash at all times.



No crashers- Please sign up for this event.  Please do not just show up.

RSVP limits are set, because too many people creates a bottleneck on the stairs.

Please keep your RSVP updated and current.  Repeated No Shows may lead to members being removed from the group.

If your plans have changed, please change your RSVP ASAP, so those on the waitlist can be given enough notice!

There usually are no restrooms along these walks. Restrooms are usually only available at the starting point of the walks.

Bring plenty of water and sunscreen.

Always wear running/tennis shoes. Open toed shoes are not a good idea for these stairs walks.

Any questions or concerns please email me, David.  But, since I do not have a smart phone, please ask questions at least a day before the event.

    There is a good size waitlist. So, to be fair to those on the waitlist, if your plans have changed, please change your RSVP. Thanks
