Secret Stairs: Pre-Super Bowl Walk in Griffith Park

Hiking Hollywood Hills

Charles Flemming, the man who has motivated hundreds of Angelenos to get out and get healthy by walking the staircases that are embedded into the hills throughout our City, has a great walk in Griffith Park planned for Super Bowl Sunday morning. Flemming and his group Secret Stairs conducts a monthly walk – and as luck would have it, the February walk conveniently lines up as a way to burn some calories before the Super Bowl festivities kick in.

This month’s hike takes place in the hills of Griffith Park where Flemming promises a little something for everyone! The Hollywood Hills and Hollywood history – stairs, celebrity homes and … the Bat Cave. The walk in Griffith Park takes place Sunday, February 2, at 10:00am, at the Fern Dell entrance to the Park — the corner of Fern Dell and Los Feliz, at approximately 5415 Los Feliz Blvd.

This walk is about 3 miles, where the group will climb a couple of hundred stairs, and make the way back to Fern Dell in time for lunch. The walk is rated about a 3 on a 1-5 difficult scale.
