We took the path less traveled and found ourselves hiking a very vertical route to the top. It was the challenge that we were looking for as there many groups hiking on the main trail. The views from the top were spectacular and we chose to hike the main trail down.

I visited this place excited to see my first local waterfall. It was ere but along the way there was an unreasonable amount of graffiti. The water flow was know and the region has been in a drought, there are to many people and to many flies along the walk areas that have mud/ low water

Eaton Canyon is a great nature refuge north of Pasadena. We love going for long nature walks through the canyon.

Parking is limited at this hiking area at the foot of the San Gabriel Mts., so begin the day early. There are ample trails for everyone from the two miler walkers to the fifty mile trail runners. We were there on a weekday, and the lots were full when we left around 11. Well worth the effort: beautiful views of... More

Great place for a hike. Wear comfortable hiking shoes and bring water. Watch out for snakes. Paths can be slippery.

I have hiked to many places but this was by far the best one yet. The area beginning with the town is a very nice place. I did not have a difficult time finding parking and I parked my car in the residential neighborhoods. You do have to be careful because there are signs saying you may not park in... More

This is a nice place to walk and hike. There is a nature center and the trails are well marked. We saw deer. It is very popular.

Eaton Canyon is located at the northeast "corner" of Pasadena. It's a canyon with plants and a small nature museum that offers plenty of hiking paths to water falls, across bridges, etc. I love coming here on the weekends to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It's so easy to get to because it's right in... More

This great hiking trail is located in Altadena, not Pasadena, but that does not detract from its loveliness. But do go early unless you like your nature served up with a huge helping of humanity on the side.
