NO, Not a beginner's hike and the suggested time to arrive is 8:15 AM. Advanced level - OVER 8 miles round trip and over 4 hours. The Group will meet in the Observatory Parking Lot which is next to the Observatory. In front of the Mt. Hollywood Hiking trail post and sign. ' Remember ' meet in the observatory parking lot. Be aware: there will be cool weather heading to destination UNKNOWN and a little warmer returning back to the parking lot. Get into the Parking Lot early because I AM LEAVING AT eight-thirty AM 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 test how conditioned we are for the new year and there will be no exceptions ... TESTING our fitness level ... NO initial destination. " This will not be a RUNNING or TRAIL BLAZING EVENT And the goal is to record your condition after a set amount of time and distance. This will be a semi-structured event. "

weather conditions: Attention:There will be trails, some climbing, some jumping, some jogging, fast and slow walking and people getting lost, whining and angry but there will be a definite sense of where we are at to start the new year. This is Not a Training event BUT this hike is focused on conditioning directly. All are welcome to this family/friendly environment NO Dogs, NO brats and NO crybabies are welcome, yet if you're a know it all, speed demon or minion ? .... today is your day, on this hike. " In Deeds we trust ! "

Wear hiking shoes or trail runners, 2 pairs of socks, bring a good attitude, water, sunscreen, camera, and some snacks, I may get hungry ....
