Did the Santa Anita loop 9.5 miles. Well shaded with some rest areas along the way. Got to glimpse a Bobcat, Sturtevent falls was a trickle, but the overall scenery is great. Trail goes down then up..... more »
Very close to Monrovia and Arcadia, this place is perfect for weekend hiking. Not very difficult tracks and goes from rocky to fairly dense bushes. We went for the Hermit falls Trail, which went down pretty sharply in the woods down to the river bed. We had to cross the pebble river and then hike up the rocks to reach the falls. There is a nice place to enjoy water at the end of the walk. We went on a pretty hot day but amazed to see the rush of people over the hills. Someplace we experienced long wait to let people pass by in the narrow stretches of the trail. Our car had to be parked on the approach road to this place. There are old cottages along the route and have some good places to have a picnic. It is important to carry enough water or hydration as the dry weather can lead to cramps. There are no places for filling up bottles. However please do not leave away trash in the process. Overall its a nice outing which needs to improve and accommodate such number people during weekends or holidays.
This is THE BEST trail in Los Angeles. Runyon Canyon has nothing on Big Santa! Lush greenery, waterfalls, campsites it has it all. Stunning views of the San Gabriel Mountains greet you before you descend into the canyon. Pack a light lunch and eat at the falls its all good and all God.
