Griffith Park Loops | KCET
Griffith Park Loops
Although technically not alongside the river, Griffith Park is close enough to allow serious forays to and from the channel. The rides here are tree-lined, scenic and well maintained. How far you explore depends on your ambitions as well as those of your traveling companions.
The simplest approach is taking Zoo Drive at Riverside Drive to the north, or Crystal Springs Drive at Los Feliz Boulevard to the south. The two roads join within the park, where they form a 9-mile scenic loop. This loop, in conjunction with the Los Angeles River Bike Path, traverses higher ground that overlooks the river.
STARTING AND ENDING
Enter the park at Los Feliz Boulevard where it crosses Interstate 5.
DIRECTIONS TO THE START
TRANSIT: From Downtown take the 96 Bus towards Sherman Oaks. Exit at Riverside/Los Feliz.
CAR: Head north on Interstate 5. Exit at Los Feliz Boulevard and make a left.
STARTING POINT PARKING
Park on the street near the Mulholland Fountain just west of where Los Feliz Boulevard crosses Interstate 5.
Hill Climb Addition - This 1.8 mile extension will definitely work your cardio! Hardcore bicyclists can take a cue from Lance Armstrong, who climbs into the heights of the park and cruises the curving roads when he comes to town.
