I noticed this piece of info this morning on The Source blog, adds one more thing people can do in Los Angeles without the need for a car! I've always wanted to go to this place but haven't really gotten the motivation to drive out there, I'll definitely have to check it out soon. I believe are some pretty great shots from this area in the Los Angeles picture thread.

New shuttle debuts this holiday weekend from Expo La Cienega Station to Baldwin Hills Scenic Overview | Metro's The Source

I am curious if there is one of these for Griffith Park from the Red Line...

Outstanding! Its great to see LA accomodating to those who want to enjoy the outdoors and scenic vistas without having to drive

I actually live really close to there, a GREAT hilltop to view the city, especially the westside. Theres some more hiddend trails in Kenneth Hahn off La Cienega.

I hate to sound selfish but I'm hoping that these "hidden gem" areas don't gain a few too many new visitors.

This is great. We use that park although personally probably not the shuttle. The blue line to Expo to a shuttle versus a 15-20 minute drive.

I took the link shuttle yesterday 1pm, and it was NOT easy to find. There are no signs on the Expo line to advertise it nor any signs on the shuttle stop. By the way it at the bus stop across the street from the metro Parking lot at La Cienega (same side as Target/See's). It goes to the top of Baldwin Hills Scenic and then to the Kenneth Hahn Park visitor center near the smaller pond, then back to Expo. I was the only one on it both ways. I hope people use this community service or else it might get cut.

Awesome! I've always seen pictures of people up there, as well as other good park locations in LA. But without a car they hard to get to. Glad to see Metro expanding things like this.

Metro line 96 goes from Downtown LA to some of the downhill destinations in Griffith Park like the zoo and the Autry Museum, an often under-rated museum.

Another good one is to the East of this one in the K. Hahn rec area. You can stand atop what used to be the Baldwin Hills Res and look down the little canyon while guessing which houses on Cloverdale were destroyed when the dam broke. There's a scenic view of the city also.
