Route Description Hyperlapse Video of Segment H

Route Features: The first quarter of the route is in hilly upscale residential streets below Griffith Park, then proceeds to a few remote stairways in the rolling Los Feliz/Franklin Hills area, also primarily residential. Then the walk becomes a residential area stair-fest in the Franklin Hills, including the longest stairway set in Silver Lake, while on the circulation pattern of The Sicilian Stair-Walk, though starting in a different location. Then there is a lunch break at Tomato Pie Pizza Joint, then you take on the stairways around the western ridge of residential homes, overlooking Silver Lake, which includes the third longest stairway set in Silver Lake, punctuated by a walk to and from the Hyperion Bridge to catch two stairways. Then the last part of walk resumes the residential area stair-fest, this time on the ridge east of Silver Lake, which includes some stairways in the 150 to 200+ step range. Overall, this walk, even though it has about 580 less total up steps than Segment I, may still be the toughest of the entire LA Loop, since it has 6 of the top 10 step-count stairways in Silver Lake, which have over 200 steps, including #1 Prospect – 295, and #3 Esther’s Steps – 265!
