The Arroyo Seco Bike Path runs about 2 miles between southern Pasadena and northeast Los Angeles, offering views of the LA skyline and the distant mountains. It begins on the north side of Pasadena Avenue and travels a short distance west to meet its namesake stream, which it follows southwest the rest of the way.
Although the trail parallels the Arroyo Seco Parkway (State Route 110), the traffic noise is hardly noticeable. The pathway travels under the cover of tall sycamore and oak trees and offers access to Hermon Park (also known as Arroyo Seco Park) and the Ernest E. Debs Regional Park. South of E. Pullman Street, you can also take a pedestrian bridge over the Arroyo Seco to reach Sycamore Grove Park.
Your journey will end at the Montecito Heights Recreation Center. One day it's hoped the path will continue further south to connect with the Los Angeles River Trail
Parking can be found at several places along the trail:
- Hermon Park (5566 Via Marisol)
- Sycamore Grove Park (4702 N. Figueroa Street)
