LA River? Yes Dorothy, it does exist. So, let’s go check it out.
The hike/walk will be 3 miles with an optional additional 2+ miles. No hills, so this would be a Level “1” to “1.5” level hike depending on how far you walk.
There will be all kinds of birds to see and an interesting mix of pocket parks to rest in if need be.
Dogs on leash are welcome. You should probably bring some water, especially if you’re going to go on the extended hike/walk. And since the weather is still warm and we’ll be near water, insect repellant? You might want to use it if insects find you irresistible.
Parking will be at the Griffith/Riverside tennis facility parking lot (3401 Riverside Drive Los Angeles, CA 90027) which is the first parking lot south of Los Feliz Blvd. on the east side of Riverside Drive. We will meet near the tennis courts.
