FAVORITE ROADS TO RUN IN LOS ANGELES
- •Valley Vista, Studio CityRolling hills for variety - moderate traffic - but a generous shoulder. warm feel to the neighborhood. bonus points for friendliness of other runners who always wave, or wave back
- •Beverly Gardens ParkSequestered dirt path, no traffic except for crosswalks. Classic BH vistas. Plenty of trees to shade and water fountains.
- •Sunset BlvdConcrete sidewalks strain legs after a few miles - but lots of rolling hills to keep things interesting - environment changes dramatically from greenery of BH to Sunset Strip to Hollywood blight.
- •Valleyheart Drive, Studio City/Sherman OaksRiver adjacent!!! Lots of shade from trees. Feels private. Loses points for constantly having to cross major streets (Laurel Canyon, Whitsett, Coldwater...) and for being generally flat.
