Idlehour: Idlehour Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Lofty ridges, dramatic canyons and a trail camp cradled in the peaceful woods are a few of the many attractions visited by Idlehour Trail, which offers the hiker a grand tour of the Front Range of the San Gabriel Mountains. For all but the most die-hard hikers, this is a one-way tour, an 11-mile descent from Eaton Saddle at the crest of the range to Eaton Canyon County Park on the outskirts of Altadena.

Bold and beautiful, Eaton is among the most rugged of the range’s metropolis-facing canyons. From the head of the canyon under the white visages of San Gabriel Peak and Mt. Markham, a creek cascades all the way down a V-shaped gorge to spill over Eaton Falls near the mouth of the canyon. The great naturalist John Muir called this country “rigidly inaccessible” after an 1877 exploration."
