The trail to Eaton Canyon waterfall trail is very easy. There are many other trails that you can extend to Henninger Flats. The trail starts in Eaton Canyon Nature Area, bathroom :-) Follow the trail along a typically dry creek bed. One mile of wide flat dirt trail which can be uneventful.... and plenty of sun along the way.
After a mile, the trail to the falls crosses under a bridge and enters the San Gabriel Mountains. Atop the bridge is Mount Wilson Toll Road, this is the trail that can lead you to Henninger Flats. Once you pass under the bridge, you have to cross some streams. Be especially careful on this section of the trail, which crosses rugged terrain, can be slippery. This nice stretch is over far too quickly as the falls are just half a mile past the bridge.
Since it is too short of a hike, I decided to continue to Henniger Flats (on my next review). Even they have 2 parking lots, it gets full easily on the weekends.
