Secret Stairs No. 3: Cypress Park

AKA the north side of Mt. Washington starting at Del Rio Park – an improvement in a still industrial part of Los Angeles.

You soon start walking up to one of a handful of “stairway streets” with homes whose only access is by stair: Tillie Street built in 1928: looking down Tillie “Street” across Taylor Yard to Echo Park.

The stairs continue and form part of Kilbourn Street:

Like a Eagle Rock, a mix of older cottages and modern.

The biggest surprise are the trails through Elyrian Canyon Park – acquired by the Conservancy and administered by the State.

And then there’s the graffiti and decorative additions.
