Facebook Event on 18 Nov 2017

Segment Highlights: Segment A starts on the Promenade at the transit mall on 1st St, and from there we warm up by visiting the LB Community Auditorium WPA mural, then  the walk becomes a DTLB waterfront stair-fest, passing through nearly the major attractions in downtown waterfront area (the rest are on Segment D), and going out and back on the Queensway bridge with its 4 bookend stairways, and shortly after leaving DTLB, the route heads north to see the Hummingbirds and Dragonflies mural on the 7th Street over-crossing, before heading north along the LA River visiting a few parks and isolated stairways before heading inland to the lunch stop, past the 8 mile mark, near the Willow Blue Line Station, where Willow meets LB Blvd. After lunch the route heads NW along the blue line route, leading to an over-crossing of the Blue Line and under-crossing of the 405, heading into the Los Cerritos and Bixby Knolls neighborhoods en route to gorgeous Scherer Park, with lake, 5 pedestrian bridges and a stairway! From there, the route heads west and south passing through the circle where San Antonio meets Orange, visiting 4 parks, the last of which is Somerset Park, just NW of the LB Airport in North Long Beach.
