Last Sunday [11.2.14] I attempted the same hike I did in the summer. It’s a super short one (3 miles total) but I’m not exactly sure I completed it. I’ll keep this short & simple since I’ve wrote about this hike before. But the first 0.75 miles is basically straight up the mountain. When I ask someone to do this with me, I’ll usually warn them about how strenuous the first part is… well I forgot this time. In short, by the time we got to the top (the Wisdom Tree), my friend didn’t want to continue to Cahuenga Peak so I carried on alone. If the whole thing was only 3 miles total, so 1.5 mile each way, and it’s 0.75 mile to the tree, then I think it’s safe to say I made it to the peak. I was the tallest point on that mountain (I think) & it seemed like the right distance, but I could be wrong. Well, I made it there and back within half hour so my friend wouldn’t have to wait too long. It was a nice day though. It rained two nights earlier so the weather was still freezing cold. But that makes for great hiking weather.
