Location to put in your map: 2333 Fern Dell Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90068
Please drive past The Trails cafe for about 0.3 miles on Western Canyon Rd, and park at the Fern Dell lot. To get to our starting location and trailhead, please turn on Fern Dell Drive from Los Feliz Blvd.
Please DO NOT turn on Vermont Ave or Hillhurst Ave.
Our registration/start location and West Trail trailhead is off to the right of the parking lot and signs will point you to the way.
The length of our hike is 2.5 miles to the top but please know that you can turn around at any point. We will have light snacks provided at registration and water stations along the trail. Please bring sunscreen and sufficient water.
Dogs are allowed on the trail but please think of their welfare, social-emotional behavior, and plan for your pet’s needs prior to your arrival.
This allows you to decide if you prefer to fundraise as one person or get a group of people together (i.e your family, work team, friend group) to all raise funds together towards one goal. From there you will create a fundraising account.
