Elysian Park: West Loop Map

Elysian Park is a popular natural area located just a few miles from downtown Los Angeles. Due to this proximity to downtown, this park is extremely popular—yet that popularity is well-deserved.


On this short hike, you'll enjoy a welcome dose of nature surrounded by the noise and development of the city. As you walk around this loop, you'll reach the top of a low ridge that offers stupendous views of the Los Angeles skyline! The views are definitely camera-worthy, especially at sunset.

This hike is quite easy and nontechnical, making it perfect for almost everybody.
