    Any chance of this hike being offered on a Saturday or starting later. I would to make one but coming from the OC, don't think I could make it there by start time. :(

      Also, starting later than 6:30 can be problematic as we usually like to party at the top for awhile (like an hour), and consequently not get back to the parking lot until close to 10 PM when the Park closes (however, we can still escape at 10:30, and I have never seen them write tickets)

      Because they are doing Shakespeare, I think they are closing the park considerably later.

    Fun people and nice conversations. Or nice people and fun conversations. Either way, I had a really great time. As usual, time passed too quickly and I could have stayed up there a bit longer. Thanks for putting this together Mr.Lee and Scott.

    What time do you expect to reach the top? I may start out from the Observatory. The full hike from the MGR is probably beyond my fitness level at this point, but I've been doing the Mt Hollywood from the Observatory once a week for the past three and would love to meet y'all up at the top.

    August 14, 2013

    • Lee Z.

      Lena...we will be starting to reach Mt. Hollywood by 7:30. I myself will probably not reach it until 8 PM as I usually "bring up the rear"

      August 16, 2013

    • Lee Z.

      BTW, sierra club is also hiking on this night. They may divert to Dante's as we will be a big group

      August 16, 2013

  • Shantel

    Its my first night hike. How's the visability and such?

    1 · August 16, 2013

    • Scott H.

      City lights are always good lighting. Once your eyes get accustomed to the low light it's easy hiking. A moonrise makes it even better. Many of us have red led lights, if needed you can borrow mine. We Lycans have great night vision.

      August 16, 2013

  • Margo P.

    bummer I'm on the waiting list........ :(

    August 16, 2013

  • Rochelle

    Any chance of opening more spots? I'd really like to make this hike!

    August 15, 2013

  • Carmen

    Lenna, I will hike with you. Yes, most people are pretty fit on this hike in my opinion. We can go from MGR, but take the fire roads instead of cardiac hill. Perhaps start a little earlier since everyone else is so fast.

    • Chong

      I want to be a part of this hike!

      1 · August 15, 2013

    Whew. Finally I have secured a spot in t his always-sold-out hike ;-)

    • Larry T

      Now.... "What to bring for the potluck?"

      August 15, 2013

  • Lee Z.

    You can make your own way from the Observatory if you like. Leaving from Parking Lot 2, there will be a faster group and a slower group. It usually takes over an hour to reach Mt. Hollywood on the typical route. It is a much shorter route from the Observatory.

    Sometimes people take Cardiac Bypass as it is easier (though longer) than Cardiac Hill.

    August 15, 2013

    • Larry T

      "Cardiac Bypass" LOL
