The Big Parade-LA's Annual Urban Hike Festival 2

The Big Parade, a two-day annual urban hike of Los Angeles, just concluded last week with over 200 people participating in it. The hike consisted of a 35-mile walk, covering 101 public walkways in Los Angeles. The route is designed so that participants can walk a mile, an hour, a day, or all the way from Angel’s Flight (downtown) to the Hollywood Sign, passing by public parks, markets, lakes and even an observatory (Griffith Observatory) along the way. Participants were provided maps and timetables on the website and they could walk for as little or long as they liked.

The Big Parade website conveys the reason behind their idea:

To celebrate something that has been evident from the start: that L.A. is best seen, experienced, and navigated – not just for fun, but as a day-to-day practice – on foot.
