TWO-HIKES: BOTH START FROM INTERSECTION OF CAMINO SAN RAFAEL AND FLINTRIDGE DRIVE

HIKE FROM 6:00 TO 8:00 PM

THEN....SHORT EASY HIKE TO PEAK TO WATCH FIREWORK DISPLAYS: 8:15 TO 9:30pm

See fireworks in all 4 directions

From here, we have an unobstructed view of fireworks shows at the Rose Bowl, Dodger's Stadium, La Crescenta & Sunland-Tujunga, and CBS Studio Center in Studio City

The plan is to meet at 6:00, and walk for about 2 hours. We'll pass Cerro Negro Peak and continue north towards Descanso Gardens, with about 200 feet of elevation gain each way. Then we return to our cars by 8:15, get our chairs and snacks out of our cars and walk a half mile to the entrance to the "Ridge lateral Motorway" (photo: https://www.meetup.com/los-angeles-hiking-group/photos/27978260/#[masked] ) hike a half mile up the dirt road to the mini-peak, plunk down on top and watch the fireworks.

BRING CHAIRS, SNACKS, DRINKS, MAYBE MOSQUITO REPELLENT, BLANKET, WARM CLOTHES, ETC FOR THE SHORT HIKE TO THE FIREWORKS-WATCHING PEAK
