Fish Canyon Falls – Azusa - Easy Hike

Saturday, June 1

Fish Canyon Falls – Azusa

This is a short, easy hike to one of the best waterfalls in the San Gabriels. The hike is 4.0 miles roundtrip with a 400’ elevation change. Since this is such a short hike, we’ll take time to climb down to the rocks and pools at the base of the falls, and enjoy the scenery before heading back to the trailhead.

We’ll be taking a free shuttle provided by Vulcan Materials to the trailhead. Dogs are allowed, but must be on a leash at ALL times.

Much of the trail is in open sun, so be sure to bring a hat and sunscreen. There is one creek crossing, so you may want to consider waterproof boots or water shoes. However, this time of year, the creek should be fairly low. Poison oak is VERY plentiful on this trail. Long pants are recommended.

Meet your hike leader in the Vulcan Materials parking lot at 8:15 a.m., or arrange with others to carpool from Santa Clarita. We’ll sign in for quarry access at 8:30 a.m. Rain will cancel this hike, since rain cancels quarry access.

Directions: Take I-5 south to the 210 west. Exit at Mt. Olive Avenue in Duarte. Merge onto the 605 north, turn right (east) onto Huntington Drive and go 0.6 miles to Encanto Parkway. Turn left (north). Drive north on Encanto Parkway. At 1.3 miles you’ll pass the entrance to Encanto Equestrian Center, on a dirt road going off to the left. In another 0.2 miles there will be a dirt parking lot on the left side of the road. Pass that and go another 0.25 miles and proceed inside the Vulcan main gate. There is free parking available inside the main gate.

Hike Leader: Linda

Rated: Easy

    Dianne and Larry, Will we be done with the hike at noon? I would love to take my son for this waterfall hike, but we need to be back by noon for his violin recital. Thanks.

    It sounds like easy enough for me. I joined a hike once, but could not make it all the way, and feel sorry that someone had to stay behind. Is the climb down to the rocks difficult or still easy? Thank you!
