HIKE LEVEL: Level 6 – (Not for beginners)
WHAT IS A HIKING LEVEL?:
Find out more about hiking levels here:
(This is the Greek Theater’s address, but we’ll meet in the parking lot north the Greek theater, just before you start going up to the Observatory hill.)
DISTANCE: 6 miles round trip (Approx.)
DURATION: 3 Hours (Approx.)
DOG-FRIENDLY?: Although they are allowed in the park, we do not recommend bring them on this level hike.
TRAIL WALKTHROUGH: We begin an the main trail which will lead us to the base of a hill climb. The hill climb is a steep climb and may require some people to hold on to surrounding terrain. It is well stepped and can be conquered at a slow rhythm. We will then go up a small peak which will give us a great view of the Los Angeles basin and some of the burbank/Glendale area. We will then go down to another platform for a closer view. The rest of the trail will go in an impromptu format until we head back to the parking lot.
WATER REQUIRED. WATER CHECK WILL BE PERFORMED. If you do not take enough water or are not appropriately equipped for this hike, you will be turned away from doing this hike with us even if you show up. Hydration packs are great for such water necessities. Please note, that we have expectations for evening hikers. Read all the details.
REQUIREMENTS: WATER 2 to 3 Liters of water OR about three to four 20oz bottles of water. Comfortable hiking/sports shoes with good grip.
RECOMMENDED: Comfortable hiking shoes with good grip. Hiking sticks/poles help you go up hill and keep you balanced when going downhill. Sunscreen and a hat to keep your eyes out of the sun.
RESTROOMS: There are a couple at the meeting point. There are no restrooms along the way, so please make sure you take care of any needs prior to the meeting time. Also, this is not an excuse not to bring water. Water, and keeping hydrated, is required for all our hikes.

MY FRIEND SAID I CAN DO THIS HIKE, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT, RIGHT?
Contrary to popular belief, you know your body and hiking experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiker, please read our hike details page as the hike may not suite your experience level. We have a better experience if every hike has hikers of the intended level.
