Although attendance at Glendale's annual Brand Park Turkey Trudge hike dropped from 20 people to three, the Metz family didn't seem to mind.
Part-time naturalist Dave Moreno, who leads the two-mile hike each year, was unsure just before 1 p.m. how many people would show up for the two-mile hike.
"But if anyone shows up, we'll go," he said.
Margaret Metz and her two children, Amanda, 16, and Sean, 8, arrived with just a minute to spare.
The Montrose family regularly participates in Moreno's hikes behind Brand Park, and Sean can narrate the trail by heart.
Moreno led the family in stretching at the base of the trail by the Doctors' House Museum and encouraged everyone to bring water.
