On the southwestern outskirts of Los Angeles, the Laguna Dominguez Trail spans just shy of 3 miles, connecting the cities of Lawndale and Hawthorne (named for famed American author Nathaniel Hawthorne). Sometimes referred to as the Dominguez Channel Trail for the waterway it parallels, the trail is helping to transform this right-of-way along stormwater infrastructure into an urban open space for active living.
The trail's southern end is situated across from El Camino College, providing a convenient route for students to reach the Crenshaw Green Line Station, about a block from the trail's north end. Numerous shops, restaurants, and neighborhoods are also accessible along the paved pathway, which is beautified with native grasses and leafy brush.
The Alondra Community Regional Park, also on the trail's southern end, offers many recreational amenities, including a golf course, ballfields, pool, splash pad, and small lake.
Parking and restrooms are available at the southern end of the trail in Alondra Community Regional Park (3850 W. Manhattan Beach Boulevard, Lawndale).
For those taking public transportation, the north end of the trail lies only 0.2 miles from the Crenshaw Station on the Green Line of the Los Angeles County Metro Rail system; sidewalks can be followed to get from the station (located on Crenshaw Boulevard) to the trail.
