This route starts east of Broadway near Casey Middle School. It is 1.37 miles/2.2 kilometers and takes about 45 minutes to an hour, owing to elevation gain.
Start at the mid-block crossing between Portland Place and High Street on Broadway. Use the pedestrian signal to cross Broadway heading east, if necessary, or just walk south to High Street.
Turn left onto High Street and walk past Casey Middle School on the left. Look for a narrow concrete walkway about 150 feet past 15th Street on the south side of High Street. Take that walkway south to Mapleton Avenue.
Turn left (east) onto Mapleton Ave. and walk to 17th Street. Turn left onto 17th and walk past a couple of murals. The street turns into an alleyway between Mapleton and Bluff Street. Walk through the alley across 18th Street - look to your right to see some chickens kept there.
At 19th Street, turn left (north) and follow 19th as it becomes a dirt road. Look for a small dirt path on your left before you reach Alpine Avenue. Turn left onto the small dirt trail. The trail leads to Sunset Boulevard, which affords walkers nice views of the mountains.
Turn left (west) onto Sunset Blvd., which curves around and empties onto High Street. Turn right onto High St., pass Casey Middle School (now on the right), and return to Broadway. Enjoy!
