The hike will be about 2 to 2.5 hours and will be about 4 to 5 miles is a medium-paced hike. We will mostly take steep single-track trail, but some roads as needed. Bring water and wear hiking shoes (not plain street shoes or sneakers), hiking poles if needed, and a long sleeve shirt if you get chilly. You can bring flash lights but please only the red or green; white light diminishes night vision. Arrive 10 to 15 earlier, we leave exactly at 7 pm
How to get there take the Los Feliz/Crystal Springs entrance to the park just off the I5 freeway. Go North on Crystal Springs into the park. At the second stop sign you'll come to a four way intersection. The ranger station should be on your right. Make a left at that intersection, go up the road a little bit, and you'll be forced to turn right into merry-go-round lot #1. Just drive through lot #1 and down the road a little ways and you'll be in lot #2. We meet in the middle of parking lot 2.
