Sunday, July 19, Day 2 of the ultimate urban hike, "The Big Parade," will begin at the Music Box Steps and end at the Hollywood Sign. They'll be in the Red Car Neighborhood in the morning.

Fellowship Parkway, Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract and Corralitas staircases are on Saturday's schedule.

Check for instructions, routes and approximate timetables. Be sure to check Friday night, as routes and times may change. Dan Koeppel, who is organizing the event, emphasizes following their progress on Twitter so you can join the hike in progress, or just offer encouragement as they work their way through our neighborhood.
