I've been coming ever since I was a teenager. Beautiful and peaceful hike. I just turned 58 and now I have problems with my legs so I feel sad that I may have to stop hiking it was one of my biggest pleasures

This park is overcrowded during weekends, so go during the week and enjoy the serenity. There is plenty of shade and so you can hike even on a hot and sunny day. Get rewarded at the end of the trail with one of the prettiest waterfalls in the San Gabriel mountains. There is a fee for parking inside. Trail maps... More

I LOVE this park!!! For the past 5 years, I have been purchasing a park pass. Many people choose park outside of the Park (There is a $6.00 parking fee) and walk to the entrance. There are bbq and picnic tables. You do need to be careful with your food, because there are bears in the park. You might not... More

It is an easy hike with longer trails if you wish. There is a small waterfall at the end, nice place to stop and have lunch. There is also an area with tables before the trail that you can sit and eat as well. There is also a small museum. Great place to spend a little time with nature without... More

Great short hike. Moderate elevation gain perfect for kids. I really enjoy this. It threw me shaded glen most of the way. In the spring the waterfall in Creek or running heading to the magic of a hike. Definitely a week event as weekends it's very very crowded. Pay close attention to park closing hours. You don't want to get... More

We were looking for an activity that would be appropriate for the children as well as the seniors and this park filled the bill. We parked by the entrance and took the Bill Cull trail that connected with the Falls trail. A very pleasant hike and not too steep. We got to the falls, took lots of selfies and ate... More

This is a level 3 trail, there are several trail in the park. I would choose the one goes to the waterfall. It is an easy two hour walk with a lot of shades and fresh air. Drive all the way up and park there. Weekends are open from 7AM to 5PM, weekdays from 8AM to 5PM. The parking fee... More

There are two hikes. One goes to the waterfall and crosses the stream. The waterfall condition depends on how much rain we get in Monrovia. The is a nature center and picnic grounds. Take bug spray with you. There is a second trail which starts at the locked gate after you enter the park. It goes up to twin springs... More
