Elyria Canyon Park

Directions & Trail Map

Located on the southwestern slopes of Mount Washington, Elyria Canyon Park is a 35-acre nature park that provides a glimpse into the native habitat that once thrived in the hills near downtown Los Angeles. A network of trails meanders through fragrant communities of coastal sage scrub, chaparral, grassland and purple needlegrass. The park boasts one of the finest examples of California black walnut woodland in Southern California. The trails lead to vistas of the Los Angeles River, Griffith Observatory, and the city.

Directions: The main entrance to the park is located off Wollam Street in Glassell Park. Exit off the 2 (Glendale) Freeway at San Fernando Road (just north of Interstate 5 and State 2 interchange). Travel east on San Fernando Road to Division Street, turn left. Go to Wollam Street, turn right and continue to the end of the street and park in the dirt lot. Trailhead signs are posted.

Address: 1550 Bridgeport Drive, Los Angeles
