Evening Stair-Walk Loops

This page hosts a collection of links to short stair-walks designed for after work exercise, in the distance range of 4 to 6 miles, taking from 1-1/3 to 2 hours at a 3 mph average pace. The walks are grouped by area, with a list of map links below an overall image showing the walks in that area, so you can find them visually before clicking links. I’m starting with walks in the southern part of LA County, since that is the area of my work commute, where I will be likely to work with others to lead regular evening walks. Feel free to use these maps yourself to take walks at any time of the day. Many of thse walks are good introductory walks to the longer and more difficult walks we lead as SoCal Stair Climbers events.
