Directions to Trailhead

The Elysian Park West Loop Trail is a perfect family-friendly adventure in L.A. that passes through a quiet and scenic parkland. While out on the trail, you will meander along a fairly level path that passes through open grassy areas and stretches of woodland terrain. Parking at the trailhead is limited, and while there is a parking lot close by to the west, you will still want to arrive early to beat the crowds and secure a space.
