URBAN HIKE NEAR
THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 11TH
Join us for an urban exploration of hills and neighborhoods in the area near the Hollywood Bowl.
We will tour the Hollywood Dell, Whitley Heights (the first celebrity enclave in Hollywood) and the
High Tower, a roadless neighborhood set in the hill next to the Bowl that you probably never noticed!
We will go up and down streets and stairways and see sites of interest along the way.
We will gather at 9:00 am on Sunday, November 11th in front of the 101 Coffee Shop on Franklin. The hike will be led by Mark May.
The full route is about 6 miles but there are several places en route where hikers can easily return to
the starting place. We should be done by 12 noon. Look for parking on adjoining streets or ride Metro
to Hollywood and Vine and walk up the hill. You can RSVP on our Facebook event or simply show up that Sunday morning!
