Originally, the Roselin Public Staircase led to the India Red Car Trolley stop. Today, the 5 & 2 Freeways are below, just across Riverside Drive.

When you reach the top of the Roselin Public Staircase on the Red Car Property side of the hill, immediately turn right and then left past the first house, and take the series of stairs and sidewalks to Lake View Ave. This section is unmarked and unnamed, but we refer to it as Roselin.
One section was removed from public service (officially) in the 1979. The fourth section was permanently fenced off by a neighbor and is inaccessible.
We're looking at the Red Car Property Neighborhood's public staircases leading up to The Big Parade on May 21 & 22, 2011. The Big Parade is a FREE 2 day, 35 mile, 100+ public staircase hike from Downtown Los Angeles to the Hollywood Sign. Join The Big Parade for a few staircases, miles or both days.
