Downtown Ecotone Trail
Backcountry hike in conjunction with Critical Campout, September 1, 2011
Trailhead at MOCA Grand Avenue

Duration: 60 minutes Trail
Difficulty: Strenuous
Start/End Location: MOCA Upper Plaza
Start Time: 7:10, 7:15, 7:20, 7:25

Descend Bunker Hill on a Ranger-led hike to explore the distinct shifting environment of art and gentrification at the Gallery Row/Skid Row ecotone. Hikers will observe the different forms of habitation in Downtown L.A.

Besides the hikes and the campout, the trailhead and MOCA lodge will be full of a variety of interesting campfire programs and activities from 7-10pm. Explore Downtown L.A. and a range of habitation options on-site by engaging with a tent-making demonstration, asking rangers questions, watching a video of our past expeditions, and participating in campfire discussions.

The Los Angeles Urban Rangers are excited to be collaborating with the Los Angeles Poverty Department to offer this special evening of hikes and campfire programs.

Out of respect for the social terrain and strenuous nature of this trail we are guiding a limited number of hikers. Please reserve your spot by emailing reservations@moca.org starting Thursday, August 25 at 9am. Indicate your preferred start time and we will do our best to accommodate you.
