Difficulty: Strenuously moderate - We're not just staying on the easy fire roads!
We will be hiking to the Hollywood sign! But this is not your standard Hollywood hike – we’re gonna be starting our adventure by taking PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION to Griffith Park. (This allows to hike straight through the park, and not backtrack!) From there we’ll hit not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven, not eight, not nine, not ten, not eleven, but TWELVE PEAKS (12) throughout the park. And, of course, at some point Ben Banet will be taking professional quality pictures of everyone in front of the Hollywood sign (cost included in trip price). We’ll be leaving campus Friday afternoon, and we’ll be back in time for Shabbat dinner. So if you want to see the Hollywood sign, but also get in a solid hike of 7 miles and 24oo ft of elevation gain while also utilizing LA’s burgeoning public transportation network, this is the trip for you!
