HIKE: Eaton Canyon Falls / Pasadena

WHEN: Saturday, 2/8 - 10am (group leaves at 10:15am)

WHERE: 1999 Veranada Ave, Pasadena, CA 91107

MORE INFO: This week - WATERFALL HIKE....  This is a relatively easy, 4 mile hike up a canyon in the lower San Gabriel Mountains to a 40-foot waterfall. 


This popular trail is worth a visit – especially in the spring when wildflowers take over the lower portions of the canyon floor. Suitable for adventurous beginners, this trail has several stream crossings, and optional, moderate trails on fire roads and single tracks through some of the eastern nature preserve outside the canyon. A must-see for waterfall lovers, even if you have to fight for a good view.  We may explore a bit more than the standard 4 mile RT. 


Eaton Canyon is one of those must-see hiking areas of L.A., both because the waterfall is actually impressive by San Gabriel standards, and that it’s so darn close to the city that you really don’t have any excuses not to go. The trail is easy to follow, and as long as you can hop across some boulders in a river (or have some hiking sandals to wade through), you’ll be just fine getting through the hike.


Meat near the trailhead by large parking lot - hike will begin at 1015am.
