The Benefits of Snow in our Local Mountains

arroyo seco and snow hikes

Shots likes these make us want to go hiking right this moment. Just a few miles north of Altadena in the Angeles National Forest, LAist Featured Photographer (from Flickr) Matt McGrath took this shot last spring when the water flow was fairly high in the Arroyo Seco. But with a good amount of snow arriving early this year, chances are that water will be running soon.

And if there's snow still to be found further up the mountainside, Casey at Modern Hiker has six local snow hikes of varying difficulties for you to try out.
