Elysian Park is the name of a municipal park and the adjacent neighborhood in Central Los Angeles, California. The park encompasses Chavez Ravine, where Dodger Stadium is located.

Closes trail to DTLA and dog friendly!

A hike I do very often just to get out of the house with my dog. Great views of dodger's stadium and the nearby freeways. You can make the loop longer by crossing the street to the other side of Elysian Park where the trails get more narrow and there's a fun climbing section. I wouldn't recommend doing this side with a dog, but definitely a lot of fun! There's also a hidden swing on this side :)

Good for kids.

Nice hike. Great views and Dodgers Stadium is right next door.

My local hike. Very easy. Little garden at the top. nice view of the neighborhood

I do this hike almost every day with my dog. Great city views, not crowded at all. Oasis in the city.

I passed it up the 1st time. Once I turned around I saw the trail across the street from the parking. It's a decent hike up to the paved trail and then it takes you on a loop and back down the way you went up. Beautiful view of DTLA and Dodgers Stadium. I found it doable and I have a bad knee.

This isn't a great running path. You are completely boxed in with the freeway on one side and a river on the other. Since it is a long straight path there are bicyclists racing down the path. I found the whole run kind of anxiety inducing.

Very simple and nice hike. My go-to for off-leash dog walking

Elysian Park is pretty amazing. I hadn't been up there in years. The park is so huge and so much exploring to do up there. I went in search of the hidden swing and happy to say, I found it....

The views of the city are worth going.....

Hope you can find the swing.

Here are some hints. If you came up from Riverside and looped passed the Police training center. Park over looking the 5 Fwy against the brick wall and walk up the trail on the left. Amazing views and if you're lucky you can swing on rekindle your joy of swinging like when you were a kid.

Easy hike

I had never been on this trail and it was pretty cool. It offers a different perspective of the city- views of the 5, the LA River and beyond that are interesting! Depending on which way you go, you could get a pretty intense uphill workout. Parts of the trail are really beautiful. It's pretty easy. The only part I didn't like was having to walk along the road for part of it- especially since I had my baby and my dog. It didn't feel very safe with the cars driving by!

I call it Silver Trails. A nice, casual, golden hour hike, above the 5 freeway. A quiet, winding dirt trail with magical lighting, views and energy all around. Perfect for those in need of a long walk.

This is a really easy bike path. It's paved well and can easily take a stroller. You can park on the streets by Oso Park. There are entrances all along the way.

There are lots of people who clearly got off of work downtown, put on their sneakers, and headed out to get some exercise.
