South Bike Path Trailhead


Play the L.A. River is a come-one-come-all project by the arts collective Project 51 -- a collective of L.A. River-loving artists, designers, planners, writers, educators -- that invites Angelenos to explore, enjoy, reclaim, and reimagine the mighty L.A. River as a grand civic space that can green and connect our communities.

CARD: Ace of South

SITE: 5193 District Boulevard, Vernon, CA 90058

Ready, set go! Ride 17 miles through 10 cities to the ocean, and see the industrial corridor and the communities that make the rest of L.A. possible.

To get to the trailhead from downtown L.A., you can ride through the Arts District, cross the soon to be demolished 6th Street Bridge, down Boyle Avenue to the old Sears Building in Boyle Heights, eastward on Olympic Avenue, down Downey Road onto District Boulevard, where you will find the entrance at the intersection of Atlantic Boulevard. To see what a bicycle journey from Union Station to Long Beach is like, check out this post here.
