“Great outdoor park”

Eaton Canyon Natural Area
Reviewed 28 June 2018

Parking can be a challenge depending on the time of day. I recommend coming early. The park itself is clean and the trails are well defined, Its beautiful and you can walk for miles. Come and enjoy yourself and be sure to use the restroom at the foot of the trail before you start as the trails are very long here.

Reviewed 27 May 2018 via mobile

My daughter and I were visiting Cali and read that Eaton Canyon would be a nice easy hike. We’re not avid hikers but we are in shape. We were pleasantly surprised at the amount of young children and dogs who were hiking there as we started out so we thought no problem.

Although the first part of the hike was “easy” the last half was challenging and somewhat dangerous in our opinion. There are many places you have to cross water by either going through the water or across slippery rocks or logs. My daughter actually fell and cut up her leg coming out and we saw two other people who were injured along the way. There were multiple kids crying too because they didn’t want to continue. When you get about 3/4 way to the falls you have the most difficult part left to go so be ready. We were all in at that point because we had gone that far but I have to say once we got to the falls we were not impressed and felt it was not worth the trek.

If you’re going to go make sure you wear hiking shoes,
take walking sticks, plenty of water and be ready to be challenged because it is not the easy hike many people make it out to be.

Great area for walking, bring your dog! Creek crossings (when it rains), picnic tables, great views of the San Gabriels.

Beautiful hike with my grand daughter but there was graffiti which took away from the beauty and too many dogs all over the place and barking which took away from the peacefulness.

Go in the cool of the morning. Can get very hot. Or go in February when things are green and weather is nice.
