Route Description Hyperlapse Video of Segment G

Route Features: This segment is two very different walks spliced together. The first 9.5 miles are a long, straight, and very gentle (nearly flat) climb inland along major streets after climbing a few stairways in the Century City area, copped from the northeast corner of the Westside Stair Tour Loop, with a few short steep climbs near the end.  The second part, is an intense and very hilly stair-fest in the narrow residential streets in the Hollywood hills for the last 11 miles, that follows most of the Hollywood 90068 Stair Walk route. These two sections are divided by the lunch stop at the Hollywood & Highland Mall.

Start 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 E (Expo) Line Train.

Finish Location: Hollywood/Western Metro B (Red) Line Station, which is accessible via the Metro B (Red) Line Train, that travels to DTLA.
