NIGHT HIKE AT BALLONA LAGOON & VENICE CANALS

LOTS OF WATER AND BIRDS

4 MILES AND 2 HOURS HIKE/WALK, part on a dirt path, part on sidewalk in the Venice Canals

DIRECTIONS: In West L.A/Marina Del Rey area--take Washington Blvd all the way to the beach. Two blocks before the Venice Pier, turn left on Via Dolce and go 1/2 mile. At the fork, go straight. (The left fork is Marquesas and that leads to Via Marina--DON'T go that way!) The right fork stays called Via Dolce and we will be parked next to the big lagoon, between Marquesas Way and Roma Court.
