Arroyo Seco hike to spillway dam

May 18 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm PDT

Join us for a 9 mile round trip hike along the Arroyo Seco trail.

This isn’t exactly a beginner hike, but if you are looking for a long hike, but one that doesn’t have killer elevation gain, this would be a good choice. You’ll see a lot of riverside vegetation of dense thickets of alders and sycamores that have grown back since the Station Fire 10 years ago that provide a good deal of shade. You will see the Angeles Crest highway weaving way above us. Overall, this is a very pleasant, fun hike.

We will hike to a large spillway dam, taking a break at the Gould Mesa campground, where there are picnic tables and outhouses.

Mileage: 9 miles

Elevation gain/loss: about 900 feet gently sloping. Time: 4 hours max including breaks and chilling at spillway.

Make sure you have your outdoor essentials: sunscreen, hat, basic first aid, plenty of water (about 2 liters), extra laces, phone, proper footwear, dress for the weather, snacks/lunch.

LEGAL STUFF: by going on this hike, you agree to assume all risks of this hike, and that no one at Meetup including the organizer is responsible for your safety. See the Meetup terms of service especially paragraph 6.2:
