Secret Stairs - Walk #11: Downtown Los Angeles

I'm adding this every other month - second Saturday for 2013!

The stairs are a good workout and it is a great way to see the city!

This is one of the Secret Stairs walks.

This is 3 miles, and 1,021 steps -- quote from the book:

"This is a fine urban walk through the very heart of the city, a massive hike that employs old staircases, new staircases, private staircases, and even circular staircases. Along the way are the city's only funicular railway, some ot its finest public buildings, and some amusing 'pedway' overpasses."

Starting at Angels Flight, we'll walk up the first 121 steps -- we'll walk through California Plaza, stroll through the plaza around the Los Angeles Central Library, the Westin Bonaventure, and around the Walt Disney Concert Hall. We end up back at Angels Flight.

We can stop by the Grand Central Market for breakfast.

    Anyone have any suggestions on parking nearby? Or is street parking readily available this time of morning on a Saturday?

      There are a couple of lots. One directly across the street and one at the corner of 4th. I think they are $5-6 flat rate. There is some street parking.

      The meters are horribly over priced, stay away from them

    What time do you think we'll be done?

      I think it took us about 90 minutes last time. I always estimate 2 hours, 'cause we'll grab something to eat too.
