Maps of 101 L.A. Staircases & Route of Big Parade Released

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

This weekend is the Big Parade, a two-day 35-mile walk urban hike between downtown L.A. and the Hollywood sign that goes up and down 101 public staircases. Today, the maps were released with extremely detailed instructions on how to join in on the fun at any staircase (they don't expect you to do the whole thing) -- even public transit notes are included. Organizer Dan Koeppel says Saturday will be shorter with more stairs and be more culture-oriented while Sunday will be longer, more adventurous and with cross-country sections. The two maps are also a good resource for many, but not all, of the staircases in the city. An 11-mile prologue walk in Northeast LA will happen Friday.
