    What equestrian facilities are available in the Arroyo Seco?

    The Arroyo Seco is rich with trail opportunities for equestrians. Equestrians are welcome on most Arroyo Seco trails, although not recommended on the paved Rose Bowl Loop.

Equestrians can most easily access Arroyo Seco trails from the south entrance adjacent to San Pasqual Stables or in Hahamongna Watershed Park to the north. Hitching posts and water troughs are located in Hahamongna Watershed Park and behind the Brookside Clubhouse in the Central Arroyo.
