These hikes--which are held on the Saturday nearest to the beginning of each new season--leave from the Charlie Turner Trailhead at the far end of the Griffith Observatory parking lot. The start time is arranged so that the hikers can see the sunset from the top of Mt. Hollywood and then head down before it gets fully dark.
Hikes to Mt. Hollywood Griffith Park's Highest Peak
Here's the group photo from the LaBonge Mt. Hollywood hike in March 1996. That's downtown Los Angeles in the
background to the left.

This is me, Mike Eberts, my wife
Maria and our son Albert. We're
near the top of Mt. Hollywood.
Behind us is a view of Glendale.
