Update 5/2/16: I would recommend skipping hike 28 in Atwater Village. First the map is not really correct as specifies taking Glendale Bl to Riverside, this is not correct, taking the stairs puts you on Hyperion. The reason why this is important is because we were walking from hike 27 and wanted to pick the trail up mid-way. We were looking for a stair at Glendale instead if Hyperion. But the main reason to skip it is because once you cross over the five freeway both the north bike path and pedestrian bridge over the LA River are welded shut. You have to go south to Glendale/Hyperion.
Update 9/9/19: Looks like the bike path on 28 north has reopened so I can recommend doing it now. I've done almost all the hikes now. Additional comments is that there are incorrect addresses of where to turn in places and some questionable descriptions (mostly in Hollywood). You'll need to read both the descriptions and look at the maps carefully, perhaps plot the route on a mapping program. Also things have changed since I got my book, like the Southwest Museum appears to be open all Saturdays and the tunnel entrance is open when the museum is and the trail up to it is closed.
The only alteration in this walk over the las few years is that it is not as shady as described. Many of the homeowners have removed older growth and replaced it with drought resistant plants. I would advise an early walk of warm or hot days.

If you fly to L.A. and want to walk around, this is a great book and make sure, you can join the walking group. They're really friendly and open-minded, perfect for a Sunday morning walk.
