Where  Los Angeles Union Station

We'll be meeting just inside the main entrance to Los Angeles Union Station. That's the entrance under the clock tower.
From there we will make our way through this public transit hub and on to the Cesar Chaves bridge. Enjoy the urban splendor as we make our first crossing of the LA river.

The proposed path has 4 bridge crossings over 4 miles as we make our way south along the Los Angeles River. Then about another mile to walk directly back to Union Station.

But if we feel particularly energetic, we can continue south to concur another 2 bridges before turning back. (This will add another 3.5 miles to the trek.)

On this trip we will not be entering the river basin.
