DescriptionThe most popular trail in the Arroyo Seco, the Rose Bowl Loop offers walkers, joggers, and cyclists a great place to exercise with spectacular views around the Central Arroyo. The Rose Bowl Loop is 3.3 miles long and circles Rose Bowl Stadium and the fairways of Brookside Golf Course. The route is distinguished by colored pavement; striping and delineators help separate pedestrians from cyclists and motorists. From http://www.ci.pasadena.ca.us/PublicWorks/Arroyo_Trails/.

  • I visited this trail recently-- parking is available along Arroyo Blvd free for 2 hours (North of the Rose Bowl). I saw some runners on the opposite side of the street on an "elevated" unpaved, easy single-track trail, which could be an option for dodging heavy ped/vehicle traffic on the main drag near Brookside Golf Club, since there are spots where no barrier exists between pedestrians and vehicles on this shared roadway/multi-purpose path in the 1+ mile stretch I saw.
