Arroyo Seco


About 3 miles in all, this bike path passes through some of the oldest and most interesting Southern California neighborhoods, following the route of the Historic Horace Dobbins Cycleway (c. 1900).

An extension of the path was in the works at one time, to run next to the flood channel. Funds were reportedly committed, tho’ there have been no new developments lately.

Sadly, like so many of the bike trails described here, large sections of this path are incredibly run-down, virtually junkyards.

It is a shame, too, because this strip of land already has lots of trees and open space, and with a little clean-up and concern, could be made into a wonderfully pleasant oasis right in the heart of the metropolis.
