Pedestrian Trail Will Be Added to Hetzler Road, Up to Baldwin Hills Overlook in Culver City

The Baldwin Hills Conservancy has approved funding for a pedestrian path to be built adjacent to Hetzler Road -- the private street that currently winds its way up to the Baldwin Hills Overlook. The path will be approximately 10 feet wide and 1500 feet long. 

Since its opening in 2009, the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook has become a popular destination for visitors from around the region who appreciate the amazing views and natural habitat available in the park. In addition to the very popular stairway to the summit, many pedestrians and joggers use the steep Hetzler Road for exercise. Due to the absence of a separate pathway paralleling the roadway, many pedestrians use the vehicular travel lanes. The intent of this project is to provide pedestrians with a safer and more attractive option of a separate pedestrian trail.

Construction of the colored concrete trail will include retaining walls to support the adjacent hillside, landscaping and irrigation, signage, fencing and drainage improvements. The City of Culver City Public Works Department will build the path in collaboration the State of California Department of Parks and Recreation.

This is a great project. I run up the hill using Hetzler Rd quite often. It's a really good workout. The amount of people who use the road to exercise is sometimes staggering, the hill really benefits the community health wise. I do wish they allow dogs along the new path, they could require a leash and perhaps make the penalty for not cleaning up after your pet crazy high.
