Tucked in an upscale residential community behind Descanso Gardens in La Cañada– Flintridge, this winding, peaceful hike takes you all over the chaparral-covered San Rafael Hills. Rarely crowded, it is one of the area’s best-kept secrets. Cherry Canyon Park can be found in the hills just behind Descanso Gardens, a popular destination known for its abundant displays of camillias, roses, and other flowers (see Nearby Activities).
