Elysian Heights Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Free street parking is available on Baxter St.
Founded in 1886, Elysian Park is Los Angeles’ second largest urban oasis (after Griffith Park). Its 600 acres are planted with native chaparral as well as eucalyptus and ficus trees. The park, which is home to Dodger Stadium, also features hiking trails, picnic areas, and playing fields for the nature-craving residents of central and eastern Los Angeles.
Begin at the intersection of Valentine Street and Baxter Street (east of Echo Park Avenue), and head east toward the hill. An elementary school is on your right."
