Unhappy Hiking

April 12, 1998

Regarding "Hidden Canyon Offers Cascades, Ocean Views" (Hiking, March 8), here's some of what author John McKinney "forgot":

Escondido Canyon Trail is shared with horses--this means "road apples" and traffic problems. It is also under a segment of the approach path to LAX. His "handsome grotto" has stinky, stagnant water. You park a mile from the trail head and walk on a paved, well-used road with "No Parking" signs because the rich residents don't want hiking scum trashing up their high-priced enclave--understandable, but not a "good vibe."
