The forty-foot waterfall in Eaton Canyon fills an amphitheater at the top of Eaton Canyon Trail, tumbling into a wide pool that you can rest alongside or wade in.
The hike to Eaton Canyon Falls can be summed up this way: 1.1 miles of wide flat, relatively uneventful dirt trail, followed by 0.65 miles of single track up a narrow canyon that is adventurous and fun (forming a 3.5-mile round trip hike with 375 feet of elevation change).
Follow Eaton Canyon Trail north along a typically dry creek bed, Eaton Wash. Pass a few shaded thickets and plenty of sun along the way. In front of you, rise the San Gabriel Mountains. The trail will take you right to the foot of these mountains.
