The Big Parade LA is a two day urban hike spanning from downtown LA to the Hollywood sign, hitting many public stairways along the way. Today we'll be joining day 2 of the Big Parade LA in exploration of the Silverlake area. Join in or part ways where you like, but the Geeks are encouraged to join in at either the 8AM or the 9AM location. You may also consider parking at the Silverlake Recreation Center and walking to your start point.

If you truly liked the Urban Stairway hike, join this week's Big Parade LA event. This is not a HikeTheGeek event, but feel free to fly your geeky colors.

This hike hits many of the public stairways around town, and will prove to be quite a work out..
