Monrovia Canyon Falls

Monrovia Canyon Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Monrovia Canyon Park is one of the true gems of the San Gabriel Mountains. This route heads to the park’s year-round thirty-foot waterfall, tucked in the back of Monrovia Canyon amid an impressive canopy of twisted, old-growth oak trees. This is a wonderfully peaceful and serene getaway from city life and is a perfect hiking spot for families.

Begin your climb in the oak-dappled sunlight and keep right at 0.2 mile as the looming form of the Sawpit Canyon Dam emerges to the northeast. This monstrous 147-foot-tall structure was built in 1927 but shortly after it was completed, engineers discovered the dam's foundation was too weak to hold the water it was planned to contain."
