Remember the ... Creature from the Black Lagoon? This Lake is known for the Famous The Andy Griffith Show (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Andy_Griffith_Show), , Bonanza (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonanza), some alien landscapes from Star Trek (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Trek:_The_Original_Series) and other television shows include Lassie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lassie_(1954_TV_series)), That Girl (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/That_Girl), Will And Grace (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will_And_Grace), Matlock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matlock_(TV_series)), Dynasty (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynasty_(TV_series)) and Sons Of Anarchy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sons_Of_Anarchy) all have history here also yet, not to mention all the motion picture films that were shot on this location too ...

Intermediate level - under 7 miles round trip and under 4 hours. The Group will meet at the Wilacre Park (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=3431%20Fryman%20Road%2C%20Studio%20City%2C%20CA) Parking Lot. Be aware: There may be a parking fee to be paid However, there is parking through out the area, you just need to read all of the parking signs for restrictions. Also, there will be warmer weather heading to a destination Los Angeles History and a little cooler returning back to the parking lot. Get into the Parking Lot early because I AM LEAVING AT " THREE PM " sharp maybe one or two minutes later. That's all the time I'm waiting ...

The destination and the "amount of stops" are at the discretion of the Hike leader totally. However, The the main objective of this hike is to to get exercise, meeting great people and learn about some of the historic locations in Los Angeles and if we are lucky there wil be a few true Hiking legends to meet on this hike also folks. ... Please pay attention to your fitness level ... one initial destination, however, the goal is to socialize and hang out with the Deedster mates. " This semi-structured event will not be a RUNNING or TRAIL BLAZING ENVIRONMENT. " Attention:There " MIGHT" be trails, some climbing, some jumping, some light jogging, a little bit of trotting, fast and slow walking. However, there will be a definite sense of ... " I Met New Friends " and a sense that you now are a Hiker !!. This is Not a Training event BUT this hike is focused on exercise, health and socializing. All are welcome to this family/friendly environment Dogs, Teens and those who want to be loved are welcome, yet if you're a know it all or speed demon? ... not on this hike.

" In Deeds we trust ! "
