We will be doing a brisk hike mostly on single track trails but also on some fire roads. We will hike up to the Observatory where we briefly stop then cross the parking lot and proceed up to Mt Hollywood on some more single track trails for beautiful views of the city. We'll stay there for about 10 minutes.
We will then move QUICKLY back down to the Greek Theater for one last ascent to the Observatory. Then we'll return to Fern Dell.
