About the event

Join us on this HFAdventure Community urban-nature adventure that combines bikes, kayaks, instruction and conversation about the Los Angeles River.   You are bringing the dream of a restored Los Angeles River to reality!

Our added educational component will be about sustainability and climate change - how do plants, trees, and biological diversity improve the planet?

This  safe and unique trip offers you the chance to learn paddling, manage small rapids and experience nature in the middle of the City.  We pass through Elysian Valley (Frogtown,)  next to the future parklands of the former train yards.

Our group will meet-up at Oso Park for about 30 minutes for our group preparation, bonding activities, meet new friends and greet ones we have seen at other HFAC events.  Then we will join the LA River Safari guides and ride a bike to Frogspot. Will will have a moment to relax after the bike ride, use the facilities, refill drinking water and learn about the LA River’s history and future, and the importance of biodiversity. 

  • Sunset Safari:   Total trip time around 2.5 hours. (3:45 – 6:30 pm)  including bike ride, kayaking instruction, discussion and time on the water.
  • Kids ages 10+: This is a small group tour and we are hoping to get as many youth on the water as possible. Ages 10-18 pick it up very fast! 
  • Swiftwater rescued, trained, fit, and informed guides of LA River Safari will accompany the group with our HFAC leader, Suzy. A parent is welcome to come, but not required.
  • Maximum weight of 210 lbs
  • Everyone must be comfortable around water. All safety gear is provided.

Safety Notes: 

1. All patrons will wear PFDs (personal flotation device) and approved kayak helmets.

3. Guides carry throw ropes to assist rescue.

5. Our guides work closely with the rangers of the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority (MRCA) to make your trip a safe and fun one.
