“Easy day hike to small waterfall”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

No gear necessary. About 3 miles round trip with very little elevation changes. Take lots of water as there is very little shade in the summer. Gorgeous canyon scenery. There are usually a fair number of other hikers on the trail. I have run into several snakes on this hike so stay alert.

“Great for families! Dogs welcome!”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

This is a terrific natural area in the Pasadena foothills. Great trails, a stream (when there's not a drought), even a waterfall if you walk far enough! I love that we can bring our dog!

“Awesome Hike”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

This place has a lot of nice trails. There is one that is the best but it is not really a trail and very dangerous to hike. People attempt it but don't get far since it is scary and dangerous. People have died on this hike, but if you are experienced and do some rock climbing, and have no fear then the hidden trail is a great one. You get to hike up a canyon while walking in the middle of the river. It is refreshing for those hot spring and summer days. My favorite hike so far in Los Angeles.
