4.2–5.0 Miles: Brake for bread
Cross to the river’s east side on Sunnynook Footbridge, and strike an eagle pose at the yoga course (upstream from the bridge) before hitting one of the city’s best bakeries, L.A. Bread ($; 3119 Los Feliz Blvd.; 323/662-8600). Try the caramelized banana pancakes or a Caprese sandwich before returning to the River Center. To get to the bakery, exit the path at Dover St.; turn left on Glenfeliz Blvd. and take it to Los Feliz Blvd. The bakery is about one block to the right.
