Trace the Steps of Los Pobladores and Celebrate LA’s Birthday
Hundreds will walk and bike from the San Gabriel Mission to Olvera Street this Saturday, Aug. 27 to trace the historic steps of Los Pobladores, the original founders of the City of Los Angeles.
The Celebrate Our Heritage Walk and Bike to LA helps celebrate the birth of Los Angeles, which began right in San Gabriel at the Mission. Walkers and bikers will follow the same nine-mile trek that Los Pobladores took in 1781.
Those who want to walk the nine-mile route should arrive at the Mission (428 S. Mission Drive) at 6 a.m. Bike riders (helmets required, must be age 12 or older) should arrive at 7:30 a.m. Participation in the walk and bike ride is free and registration will be available on the morning of the event.
