We parked in the lower Parking lot and hiked to a waterfall, the mountain areas were very great and lush, very lovely molded bushes of deep green and light green. The walk was just about 3 miles. Don't forget water and wear good tredded shoes....More

A little bit of heaven, here in Monrovia. Not far from the center of the City, you escape into the wilderness. You can see wildlife (mule deer, bears - yes!, snakes and many more animals). And you will experience a nice hike to the Monrovia...More

Gorgeous park setting, well maintained trail, facility rental for parties, all in all a great day at the park. Weekends a bit crowded from locals and parking get attrocious but street parking available, just adds to the hike

I rented cabins in the park for a Halloween party. They used to have a haunted hike during Halloween. It was the best. Beautiful waterfall. Easy to hike to.

This is a great little park with a pretty moderate hike to the waterfall. The nature center is very interesting and there is a statue of Samson, the Hot Tub Bear.
