PAINTED STAIRWAY HIKE IN SILVER LAKE
SUNDAY, JUNE 3RD

Reading to Kids volunteers hiking in Hollywood

Join us for an urban exploration of the painted stairways of Silver Lake, a route that was highlighted recently in Los Angeles Magazine - http://www.lamag.com/mag-features/silver-lake-art-stairs/.

We will gather at 8:30 am on Sunday, June 3 at Sunset Triangle Plaza on Sunset between Edgecliff and Maltman. The hike will be led by Mark May.

The full route is 6.7 miles but there are several places en route where hikers can easily return to the starting place. We will allow plenty of time for photos on the way. We should be done by 12 noon. Parking is on Sunset (free on Sundays) and adjoining streets. You can RSVP on our Facebook event or simply show up that Sunday morning!
