Route Description Hyperlapse video of Segment F


Route Features:  Starting at the ocean terminus of the Expo Line, the first half of this route traverses Santa Monica waterfront, then into the hilly and rustic residential streets, and stairs of Rustic Canyon, then continuing along the ocean to the Castellammare region, also upscale residential, with stairs, to reach the half-way point along Sunset. After about 2 miles of travel through more canyon neighborhoods along Sunset, the second half of the route gives way to a more quiet residential trek through Pacific Palisades, as way to make a second pass through Rustic Canyon, covering streets and stairs not covered in the first pass. That hilly journey concludes at about the 15 mile mark on much flatter San Vicente which will pass through mostly residential areas for 3 miles before the last, and more urban/commercial 2 miles through West LA, picking up a couple of smaller stairways, ending at the corner of Olympic and Westwood Blvd.

Start Location: Downtown Santa Monica Expo Line Station at 4th and Colorado, which is train accessible via the Metro Expo Line Train.

Finish Location: Olympic Blvd at Westwood Blvd, which is bus accessible via Santa Monica Bus Line 8 which you take walk 4/10ths of a mile southeast on Westwood Blvd, or walk this distance, to the Westwood Station of the Metro Expo Line Train.

Transit Connections:

DTLA to Start: From the 7th/Metro Station, take the Metro Expo Line Train west to the end of the line at the Downtown Santa Monica Station, where the walk starts.
