I needed an easy hike to counter the stressful week I had at work. This trail is easy to find and easy to hike. I followed a route which was once a road, most of which was washed away decades ago. I barely felt tired after this 8 1/2 mile round trip over mostly flat terrain. Starting in Altadena, Arroyo Seco Trail is the first 4 miles of the 28.5 mile Gabrielino Trail.
Great hike. I was proud of myself after this one. Cool and cloudy but the clouds didn’t obscure any of the awesome views this hike provides – Pine Mountain, the white rocks of Piedra Blanca, the Channel Islands, Lake Casitas, the Santa Monica Mountains, Topa Topa Bluff, and more can be seen on this hike. I was glad to be back in Ojai after six months away.
Short six mile hike below Mount Baldy. Easy to get to and easy to follow, the only difficult part came at the very top. Fun in a lot of ways and the view of Mount Baldy is outstanding.
