Historic Highland Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This large neighborhood of about 60,000 people on LA’s northeast side has a long history. Located along a seasonal stream called the Arroyo Seco (“Dry River”), in a valley hugged by spring-fed rolling hills, Highland Park has always attracted residents, from its earliest native settlers, the Chumash, to later ones, who started America’s Arts and Crafts movement here.
The neighborhood is served by three rail stations, along with infrastructure that helped push the city’s car-culture stereotype. CA 110, also known as the Arroyo Seco Parkway, was the first highway for automobiles in the country. Despite that, there are plenty of places that two feet will take you—as this walk will."
