The La Rocha Trail is a rare stretch of natural green space located in the hills of the Hollywood Dell. It is home to abundant native vegetation and wildlife. The La Rocha Trail is regularly used by the public as a safe, accessible and beautiful place to walk or jog with pets and children. As natural habitats have been squeezed by the explosion of construction in the area, the La Rocha Trail has offered a stretch of landscape where wildlife and humans alike could find sanctuary.

Recently, the surrounding community was alarmed to find out that 10 undeveloped lots along the trail were slated for a potential housing development. Rather than risk losing this precious open space, a grassroots group was formed to try and save the trail. The Friends of La Rocha Trail have been working to forge partnerships, gather support and raise funds to purchase the lots so they may be preserved as a permanent greenspace.
