The 6th Street Viaduct is in its last days. The iconic bridge—which was featured in Grease, Terminator 2, and, of course, one of the three music videos for Kanye’s “Jesus Walks”—will be demolished this fall, with an extravagant redesign slated for 2019. Before it’s gone, why not get up close and personal to bid the historic L.A. landmark adieu?
The L.A. Urban Rangers, a group of artists, scholars, and outdoors enthusiasts (who even dress like park rangers), will be leading hikes down to the river beneath the bridge on Saturday, March 28. Their goal is to “spark creative explorations of everyday habitats, in our home megalopolis and beyond,” which sounds like the perfect way to spend a weekend in our opinion.
Attendees will be able to supplement their ambling with family activities including Pop-up Play stations, a Homeboy Industries food truck, and a water bar (which, it turns out, is a thing). You can get your permit for the hike—which is free—upon arrival at the portable Backcountry Ranger Station. And, though you can just show up, it would be nicer to RSVP beforehand.
