City of La Cañada Flintridge logoThe City of La Cañada Flintridge is pleased to announce the completion of its approximately 1,600-foot-long Sister Cites Friendship Path, funded by the Regional Park and Open Space District (RPOSD).

For more than 25 years, the RPOSD has awarded $1.5 billion in grants to agencies and community-based organizations for park, recreational facility, trail and open space improvement projects.

The City found that the existing Descanso Trail entrance into Cherry Canyon was difficult for trail users to traverse due to its 15% slope, and identified an alternative route at a more manageable slope of approximately 8%. This new route has now been converted into an approximately 1,600-foot-long path and named Sister Cites Friendship Path in honor of the relationship with LCF’s sister city, Villanueva de la Cañada, Spain.

“On behalf of our City, I extend gratitude to the RPOSD for their generous grant funds which made this initiative a reality,” said La Cañada Flintridge Mayor Michael T. Davitt. “The Sister Cities Trail exemplifies LCF’s continuous commitment to fostering connections both locally and globally. Our community takes pride in our beautiful trails, and this reaffirms our ongoing efforts to create accessible and sustainable spaces for all to enjoy.”

The Trails Council is currently working on a map for the trail. Once it is complete it will be shared on the City’s platforms. For more information on trails in La Cañada Flintridge, please visit
