Please join your fellow stairclimbers as we climb some stairs in Silver Lake, that we rarely climb. The route will go through the old Red Car line.
This is a moderate paced hike, but includes many steep streets and staircases, including the mother lode stairs-Earl, Loma Vista, and Edendale!!
Since this has been a issue on the past few walks, I am including this in all future write ups. We are walking as a group. If the pace is too slow for you, you are welcomed to either, leave or join us on our faster paced advanced walks! I am not a GPS! I find it very interesting that those who want to go faster rarely, if ever, sign up for the faster paced stairhikes!
We are not responsible for you! You are responsible for yourself! You should be aware of your own capabilities in regard to your hiking endurance and how well you do in the elements-weather, terrain, etc. We will NOT wait forever for you to catch up on the stairs. Should you find you cannot complete the stairhike, you must be able to find your way back to your car on your own. We will not be able to leave the group and lead you back to the start. Use your smart phone or bring a map.
If you don't agree with this, please do not sign up!

About 5 miles with steeps hills and staircases.
All walks should be treated as a workout.
No crashers- Please sign up for this event. Please do not just show up.
RSVP limits are set, because I don't want a huge group on these walks. So, if you RSVP only for yourself, don't bring a guest.
Please keep your RSVP updated and current. Repeated No Shows may lead to members being removed from the group.
There usually are no restrooms along these walks. Restrooms are usually only available at the starting point of the walks.
Always bring plenty of water.
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.
