Arcadia offers family nature hike April 28

Family Nature Hike!

Saturday April 28th, 8am Sharp!

We will meet at the Community Center at 8am sharp, board a bus to the trailhead in Sierra Madre and enjoy a relatively easy hike that totals four miles roundtrip. Join us as we hike up a canyon in the lower San Gabriel’s to a 40-foot waterfall. The lower stretches of this trail are pretty level and wind through some brush and chaparral on the way to Eaton Canyon Creek. After that, its easy fire road hiking as the route follows just above the banks of the wide, rocky wash of the actual creek. This is where the trail gets a bit more verdant and you may be able to spot a few more wildflower blooms along the way. The trail is single track, rocky, and prone to crossing the creek via a lot of rocks and logs. So get your balance ready and make sure an extra pair of socks, sunscreen, and a hat. Children must be accompanied by an adult. The cost is $15 and includes lunch and transportation.

You can register now, on-line, by mail or in person! To download the registration form, go on-line to the City of Arcadia’s website: or stop by the office, 375 Campus Drive.

For more information please call 626.574.5113!
