Earl St. Public Staircase: Not Included In The Big Parade, May 19 & 20, 2012

Photo: A.F.Futterer, Holyland Exhibition, 1934.  The Earl St. Public Staircase zig-zags up one of the steep hills in the background of the Holyland Exhibition (corner of Lake View Ave & Allesandro Way).  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

The Big Parade, the free 2-day, 100 public staircase hike from Angel's Flight (Downtown) to the Hollywood Sign, covers a lot of ground.  Sadly, the Earl Public Staircase, one of the most interesting public staircases in our neighborhood, won't be on this years tour. 

However, there is still a lot to see on this year's Big Parade, whether you join for a few staircases, hours or both days.  Check out routes, timetables, highlights, advice and more:

I recommend following the Big Parade live on Twitter, if you live on on the route and want to support these hardy hikers with water or snacks.
