Route Description Hyperlapse Video of Segment L
Route Features: Segment L is a mostly residential route, first through hilly and stair laden eastern Eagle Rock, then across the Arroyo Seco to South Pasadena, where the stairs are much more sparsely distributed, traversing 28 stairways for the first half of the walk. After lunch in SoPas, the last half of the walk only traverses 8 more stairways, though one of them is the mosaic tiled Hough St stairway. The second half is less hilly and passes through some very upscale areas in San Marino, before working its way back through SoPas and working class Garvanza en route to the end on Figueroa in Highland Park.
Start Location: Figueroa St at La Loma Rd, which is bus accessible on Figueroa, via Metro Bus Line 81 to the Metro L (Gold) Line, or Metro Bus Line 180 to the Metro B (Red) Line.
Finish Location: York Blvd at Figueroa St, which is bus accessible via Metro Bus Line 81 connecting via Figueroa St to the Metro L (Gold) Line.
