L.A. River Excursion: Frogtown West Bank
Recently paved, the Elysian Valley path stretches seven miles from Mariposa Street south to Riverside Drive and Figueroa Street. Start at the Great Blue Heron gate at Fletcher Avenue and head south along the west bank.
Going out early in the morning provides one of the best opportunities to enjoy the beauty of the Los Angeles River. It's been mild lately, which you can feel as a slight chill blows along the river bank and onto the pathway while the clouds are still lingering before the afternoon sun burns them away. Grab a cup of coffee from a local coffee shop, such as Kaldi or Silverlake Coffee, and saunter along the west bank of Frogtown.
