El Pueblo to Griffith Park Trail Created

The trail stretches approximately eight miles from El Pueblo de Los Angeles, along the LA River, to Elysian Park and on to Griffith Park. Thanks to the efforts of the Citizens Committee to Save Elysian Park, the trail is added to the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy trail system. The Citizens Committee to Save Elysian Park developed the trail network with the goal of “connect[ing] parks and recreation lands along and near this portion of the Los Angeles River [to] enhance nearby communities, which are currently among the most underserved in the City of Los Angeles in terms of park and recreation opportunities.”
