Join us for a walk around Silver Lake!!!!
We will walk quickly, so be prepared for a workout.
There will be a warmup at the meeting place.
Other Information About Silver Lake:
Silver Lake Reservoir jogging trail is a nice 2.5-mile loop around Silver Lake Reservoir with roughly 200 ft in elevation gain. While on this path, a runner will get a calming view of the water, and will get to pass through the hip Silver Lake community in the middle of Los Angeles.
What Makes It Great:
This reservoir is in the center of the Silver Lake community, and not only does it provide its residents with a convenient place for rest and recreation, but its water actually supplies South Los Angeles during hot drought periods.
This trail has several grassy areas, a playground, a basketball court, and other amenities that can deliver a nice day at the park for the family and couples alike. The path is dog-friendly, but they must be on a leash; that is until you reach the off-leash fenced in area at one end of the park, where they're free to run around with one another.
Who is Going to Love It:
For runners, there aren't many things better than lake loops. With a lake loop run, you've got the predictability and repetition of a track, combined with the appealing vistas of a pristine lake to keep you from getting bored.
The path around Silver Lake is also an ideal place for a family bike ride. It's flat, short, and easy, and makes for a good place to teach young children how to ride. Take as many laps as you want, and have a good time!
