Cove Way: Silver Lake Public Staircase Least Likely To Be On The Big Parade

Photo: Diane Edwardson, September 9, 2012.  The Cove Public Staircase was cut off by construction of the 2 Freeway in 1960.  There used to be a bridge crossing the "Allesandro Cut" for the Red Car Trolley connecting Silver Lake with Echo Park.  (Click on photos to enlarge.)

The Big Parade is a FREE, 2 day, 100+ public staircase hike from Downtown to the Hollywood Sign - next weekend - May 18 & 19, 2013, with a warm-up Mt Washington hike on Friday May 17.  More routes, timetables, more info:
