Pathfinder | 105 pts
The trail is located within Elysian Park and is north of Downtown Los Angeles. This trail is ideal for hiking and running and provides a picturesque setting which will make you feel you are miles from civilization. Most of the trail is wide well groomed trail. As you traverse the hillside over looking the Golden State Freeway, the trail becomes a narrow single track. This is my favorite portion of the trail as it hugs the hillside and winds it way through trees and brush. The second part of the widens and is a favorite for local dog walkers. The challenging hills on this trail make it one of my favorite runs. Best time to take this trail is in the morning. Just remember, you are still in the heart of Los Angeles. Always be alert and cautious while using trails in this area. Enjoy!!
