Monrovia Canyon Park

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 Waterfall that gives you a nice workout.
Wonderful getaway.

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.

We parked at the upper parking lot and took our cub scouts on a hike up the easy and short trail to the waterfall. The trail can get busy at times, but it is worth the hike to get to the waterfall that always seems to have water in it. Not good for strollers or wheelchairs, but my three year old made the hike. Just get there early as the parking fills up fast. The nature center was also a big hit. Well done Monrovia!

So much fun and worth the five dollars to enter. Canyon Park has my vote and 80 acres with waterfalls await. Monrovia Canyon Park is a small, 80-acre park that sits just outside the boundaries of the Angeles National Forest in the foothills of the San Gabriels Mountains.

Do check out the Sawpit Dam its 147-foot tall and orchestrated in 1927 (flood control dam) yet engineers discovered the foundation under dam was too weak to hold the water it was designed for. T

he reservoir behind it was never filled to capacity because it wouldn’t have withstood an earthquake. As a result the DPW--- Department of Public Works--- turned it into a free-flowing waterfall by cutting a notch into it.
Worth a visit and the views from hiking trails are wonderful.
