A nice easy walk/hike along a wash and under the historic Arroyo Seco Bridge.

Walk was pretty, lots of trees and the bridges are beautiful. There are parking spots on the end of the stable on the right. We walked all the way to the Rose Bowl, 4.7 miles.

Having lived in the area for my whole life and playing golf at the golf course just south of the trailhead, I’d never explored this portion of the arroyo. The trail starts at the San Pasqual Stables and loops around at the colorado street bridge and 134 highway in Pasadena. The trail is fairly straight and level, but there are offshoots that allow hikers and trail runners to enjoy some more nature scenery. There are several bridges to pass under, constructed with a cool old style. As the trail loops around, the colorado street bridge is magnificent; it’s much bigger than the two smaller bridges down the trail. There is a little dam and refuge for ducks just beyond the bridge. As you travel back there is an archery range trail that can be taken, which adds a bit more of the natural vibe to the trail. Stay on the trail, and don’t get shot! The trail is fairly heavily trafficked but it didn’t seem too busy. Watch out for horse droppings. I definitely recommend this trail. It’s easy, easy to get to, and reasonably flat for beginners.

Hope you enjoy!

Came here for the first time a few months ago and really enjoyed the walk under the bridges and was very simple. Pretty much no incline so it was perfect to do some running. Will continue to come back here!

Nice, easy walk through lower Arroyo Seco on a wide equestrian path (no bikes allowed). Nice views of the historic Colorado Street Bridge, and near the stables there are stairs leading up to San Pasqual Avenue if you want more cardio.

Perfect place to train for outdoor running with minimal incline.

While this trail is marked for Mountain Biking, there are signs all over saying otherwise. This is NOT a cycling-friendly trail! I was pretty bummed to discover this after driving out, but I found some other fun rides in the same area, so not a total loss. I'll just have to come back and hike it sometime.

Nice flat quiet trail. West side is closed off at the La Loma Bridge due to construction. Stay on the West trail.
