“Easy, shady, beautiful Falls Hike”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

The hike for the waterfall is really easy and short. A small child, pet, or elderly person could complete this hike (my small puppy did just fine). You can determine whether to start at the nature center (only 0.75 mile one way) or from a further distance like the cabin. The majority of the trail is shaded and runs along the creek. Its very nice! Once you get to the waterfall, it is very nice and peaceful too.

This hike is also one of the cleanest ones I've done. Almost no dog poop and graffiti like others nearby but this may be due to the fact that they charge $5 for parking and have rangers/volunteers.

At the nature center there are also picnic tables for you to have a picnic before or after your hike as well as bathrooms.

Definitely will return.

“Easy hike”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

There are few trails: Waterfall, Ben overturff, Twinspring. There are poison oaks (leaves of three, let it be!) Ticks are common and rattlesnakes, so be careful. The trail that takes you to the waterfall has lots of shade.
Parking is $5 (there are 3 different parking lots). Bathrooms are available by the parking lots.
Driving direction: off the 210 FWY, exit Myrtle Ave, drive through old town Monrovia towards Foothill Blvd., turn Right, go two lights to Canyon Blvd., turn Left, drive through residential area stay on your Right into Canyon Park and follow the sign.
The trail to the waterfall is very easy and short (about 2 mi. RT). The other Trails on the right side of the first parking lot is harder.
