Ducks return to the Upper Arroyo Seco

Good news for Altadena hikers: it looks like the trail that begins at Windsor and Ventura Sts. is open again. The upper Arroyo Seco had been closed since the Station Fire last summer. Then rain and mudslides caused more damage to the trails and canyons. It’s not quite as New Hampshire-like as it used to be, but it was thrilling to walk the trail last Friday. The barriers and Forest Closed sign that blocked entry about a mile in had been removed, and we walked about 2.5 miles before turning around. We also passed two Forest Service trucks on the way out, and the drivers gave us a friendly nod. So get out there and enjoy it before the the summer heat arrives and the stream turns into a trickle.
