- If you go on a weekday, park your car on Elysian Park Drive EAST of Stadium Way. Not the greatest run, but convenient to downtown. Follow the firetrail at the beginning. After a few curves it becomes a trail. Unfortunately the trail was decimated by the heavy rains of 2004-5, and now is more like a Marine obstacle course. Hard on the ankles. After a mile or so the trail emerges at a road. Cross it and take the fireroad down. Lots of gay cruising in this area. (If you don't mind extra hard pavement, you can go down a level and take the road that circles the little-known but pretty Elysian Park reservoir.) When the fire road ends at a paved road, you can either take this back to your starting point, or plunge downhill into Solano Canyon picnic grounds first. Toward the end, spectacular views of Dodger stadium and downtown.
