Tucked away obscurely in two shady canyons behind the foothill community of Monrovia is one of the most beautiful parks in the Los Angeles area: Monrovia Canyon Park. Adding spice to the rich profusion of the riparian vegetation in these canyons is 40-foot-high Monrovia Canyon Falls, which runs with frothy exuberance for weeks or months after the rainy season ends. From the nature center, start walking up Monrovia Canyon to the north on a trail that mostly sticks close to the canyon's sparkling stream. Sometimes the trail gets narrow, eroded, and slippery enough to cause some difficulty with footing--a cautionary note for those with small kids.
