Sections of the Angeles National Forest that have been closed since the Station Fire nearly two years recently re-opened. I have not hiked up the Arroyo Seco since before the fire and it is only open up to the Paul Little Campground, about 3 1/2 miles from the trailhead. This will be a round trip of 7 miles along a stream and frequently under a canopy of trees in one of the prettiest canyons into the front range of the Angeles Crest. Elevation gain of only a few hundred feet. Easy (moderate if you have not hiked 7 miles recently).
We will walk at a leisurely pace and return to the trailhead by 1 pm. There will be a snack break at Paul Little Campground around 10:30 am. Bring water and sunscreen or a hat.
From the 210 Fwy take the Arroyo Blvd. off-ramp and drive north on Arroyo, which becomes Windsor Avenue, about 3/4 mile to the intersection of Ventura Street. Park on Windsor or Ventura, or on the adjacent streets, and look for other hikers and two small black dogs at the gate blocking the road into the Arroyo. We will depart promptly at 8:30 a.m. You can catch up with the group if you arrive a few minutes late but are willing to hustle. You can't get lost on the first mile . . . just follow the road into the Arroyo.
If anyone in Hollywood, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Echo Park, Atwater Village, Eagle Rock wants to carpool, let me know, and we can arrange to meet at 8:00 am near the juncture of Los Feliz Blvd. and Riverside Drive.
My mobile number is[masked] (don't expect it to work once we enter the canyon).
Since I limit the number of participants please do not RSVP "Yes" unless you mean it. There is no "Maybe" option.
