Baldwin Hills is a California State Park, so some rules apply:
Parking is free and easy on Jefferson Blvd. Enter the park at the "Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook Trailhead" at Jefferson and Hetzler, and hike to the top. You can either take the switchback trails, or climb the 282 stairs. Both are moderately difficult hikes and take about 30 minutes. Bring water!
Come early and enjoy the park, but make sure you make it up by 630p when the show begins. The park is staying open a little later for us, but the party will be over by 9p.

Co-sponsored by State Parks Department, Citizens Of Culture, Hub LA, and Kensington Presents.
