Although it’s a concrete channel through Highland Park and South Pasadena, the Arroyo Seco features streamside parks new and old. This walk, directly inside the channel, has historic bridges, tall sycamores and oaks, and interpretive signs at South Pasadena’s Arroyo Seco Woodland and Wildlife Park. Access Note: Although many people visit this area every day, this trip may include places that are not yet officially open to the public.

Great trails, it connects Montecito Heights to South Pasadena, ignoring everything else in between.No traffics lights, stop signs, or cars to worry about, just nature and your most comfortable walking shoes.

This trail is part of the Arroyo Seco and is popular with bird watchers. Took about an hour. Easy but sunny and hot.
