"Hey, grampa -- looks like we're neighbors. I live in Fullerton, near Gilbert and Rosecrans (a couple of blocks north of Amerige Heights)."

You're just down the road! I live near Rosecrans and Biola!

Cool! Want to do a day-hike in the San Gabriels sometime?

After surfing on here, I knew some of us had to be neighbors! Some of us have probably passed each other on the trails.

Well maybe not on the trails, but most certainly on the freeways!

Scripps Ranch/Miramar refugee here. I now pass more cows than cars! Don't miss that 8 mile 50 minute commute either.

La CaƱada Flintridge. For those out of the area we are home to JPL and are just above the Rose Bowl and our neighbors in Pasadena, Alta Dena and Glendale.

Awesome hike right in our backyard.

In the winter you'll find me at Mt. Waterman.

Jeff,

What brings you to San Luis Obispo? I've been here two years now myself. Will be happy to share any tips or insight my short time here has given me.

P.S. Just discovered this site a few days ago... this is my first post!

Hi Scott(or anyone else who knows),

As the JPL guy have you been up th4 Arroyo Seco trial to the Switzers area and beyond lately? I'm just wondering if the trial is open and/or the extent of the fire damage. Thanks.

Favorite trails? on 08/09/2010 10:20:21 MDT Print View

I'm at school in the city of Orange... anyone have some favorite trails or overnight trips in that area?

Head for the San Gabriels. (But watch out for the Angeles Crest Highway closure, which can be worked around but not ignored.)

"As the JPL guy have you been up th4 Arroyo Seco trial to the Switzers area and beyond lately? I'm just wondering if the trial is open and/or the extent of the fire damage. Thanks."

Don,

I have not been up the Arroyo Seco behind JPL and beyond since the Station Fire. That part of the Forest is closed up until sometime in September. After the fire there were stories about people being told by Rangers that if they were caught in the area they would be fined upt to $5,000.00. My brother in law rides up to Brown Mtn. a lot. It was like a moonscape after the fire.

I usually hike up from my house on a fire road that is 1/2 on County roads and the rest is Forest Service which is also supposedly closed. I have not been bothered by anyone on those hikes. I am sure you could just hike up the valley and be okay but, technically, it is still closed.

That's all I can give you.

Scott
