Hike Leader: Fearless Leader Jose
So was the title of the hike funny? Well it is when you consider the destination for this hike is called Mount Chapel
When: March 23,[masked]:00 am
where: Meet at Griffith park merry go round parking lot 2 Look in the "files" section of this page. It is above under the "more" tab. To see where the merry go round parking lot 2 is.
Directions: The map above says to go to the Ranger station. DON'T DO THAT!!!! That is just the closest address to the meeting point. the merry go round has no address so we can't pin point it on a map. The closest freeway to the meeting point is the 5 freeway. Exit Los feliz BLVD and head west.It is like 6 miles north of downtown los angeles. Turn right into Crystal springs rd right away. It is a 1/4 mile from the freeway exit . You drive on crystal springs for a while and you pass one stop sign. keep going and you will reach another stop sign. the building on your right is the Ranger station and on the left is the road leading you to the merry go round parking lots. don't go to the ranger station go to the road across from the ranger station leads to the merry go round parking lots. You can also see the signs that point the way. well that road leads to parking lot 1, go to the other side of parking lot 1 and you should get to another road that leads to parking lot 2. you should see the stairs on the far side and i should be there(I hope!)
What to bring: Water, hat , snack, dress for weather, HIKING SHOES
Hike level: moderate 5/[masked] feet gain and loss 5-6 miles roundtrip 2 1/2 to 3 hours slow pace up and medium pace down.
Hike description: this hike will be a combo of roads and one man trails up and down the mountain. I will wait at the forks of the road to make sure nobody gets left behind. We will first go up bee rock using trails we have used before. at the top we will rest for a while and enjoy the view. then go up a road til we get to the trail that leads up to mount chapel. we go up to mount chapel and we will rest for a few. We will go down a different way so we can pass Amir's garden and enjoy the spring flowers. We will then go down to the road and follow it back to the cars.
Dogs ok but must be on a leash at all times
