Nice urban walk on a paved bike trail following a surprisingly lush stretch of the L.A. River. On a short walk, saw lots of waterfowl: cormorants, egrets, herons, ducks. The water looked inviting, but I didn't pack my hazmat suit.

I ride this with my horse once week, year round. The river here is home to many encampments, so please don't take it on at night without a buddy. You'll hear the traffic from the 5, and the river here has dangerously high levels of e. coli. so please don't go in! In fact, I inspect my horse for any cuts before we walk across to get to Griffith Park.

great for a short walk in the early evening, watch the ducks swim by. there is a footbridge that takes you across from Atwater Village to Griffith Park.

A great little "get away" right in the middle of the city. Lots of birds, nice walk. Can be very beautiful in early morning or at sunset.
