HIKE WALKTHROUGH: From the parking area we walk a few hundred feet to a gate where we will walk along a paved road into the Arroyo Seco area for about the first mile and a half. Then we come to the trail head which is mostly shaded by trees and then narrows to a singletrack which is an easy to moderate trail with short inclines and descents. There are some stream crossings but no more than a foot deep however you may get your shoes wet. We make our way to the picnic benches and take our break there at the halfway mark and then return on the same path.
REQUIRED: 1 to 2 Liters of water, a snack, and a hat.
RECOMMENDED: sports/hiking shoes that you don’t mind getting wet when crossing streams (during wet seasons), a good sized snack. Sunscreen.
DOG-FRIENDLY?: Friendly (all dogs must be on leash) and must have previous hiking experience.
PARKING?: Parking is free in the Arroyo/Windsor parking lot but limited and you may have to park in the residential areas. The hike lead will indicate this at the meeting point.

MY FRIEND SAID I CAN DO THIS HIKE, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT, RIGHT?
We take your safety quite seriously, and would not like for you to attend a hike you’re not ready for. You know your body and hiking experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiker, please read our hike details page as the hike may not suit your experience level. We have a better experience if every hike has hikers of the intended level.
