“An easy trail following the Arroyo.”— Chris W
Family Friendly It is a simple easy trail with some advanced side features such as berms in the canyon wall and small jumps. Experienced and beginners alike can enjoy it.
There are several stream crossings, all usually rideable.
At the Paul Little picnic area, the Gabrielino Trail (NRT) splits off to the right and climbs the canyon wall in a series of steep, exposed switchbacks, eventually proceeding above the USFS debris dam and further up the Arroyo Seco towards the bottom of Ken Burton Trail. For this ride, stay to the left and eventually you'll come to the base of an old debris dam with a steady waterfall flowing down.
When you're ready, turn around and head back out the way you came.
This trail gets good protection from the sun due to the steep canyon walls on both sides of the trail. Some trees also provide shade in the middle of the day.
