Last week the blog Modern Hiker got some Curbed LA love for its write-up of the infamous Corralitas Rail Path on the bluffs above Riverside Drive near Fletcher Drive in Silver Lake.
It is now a privately-owned road to nowhere. It was once a throughway for the Red Car line into Glendale.
We’ve followed Modern Hiker for a couple years: it is encyclopedic in its documentation of Southern California trails.
And we agree: Corralitas Path is a gem. It’s lush, surprisingly quiet, and green green green.
We did the loop on Sunday and think it will become our trail-running training ground.
At just under two miles round-trip, it’s the perfect length.
Schreiner says this winter he'll post more urban escapes in Echo Park and environs.
We’ll keep you posted.

A previous version of this piece referred to the trail as the "Corralita's Rail Path," using the possessive. It is actually the "Corralitas Rail Path," as in the Spanish nominative plural.
