This is for the recent graduates of the Technical Canyoneering Course on Oct 20th ONLY. This is not a guided trip. You are responsible for your own safety and gear.
Classic Canyon is a small lateral ravine that tumbles down the cliff wall of Big Tujunga Canyon a short distance downstream of the point where the Fall Creek fire road crosses the river. It is readily accessed from that fire road just a few hundred yards above the Big Tujunga. This is a short adventure hike that rappels down three dryfalls the last one being about 160ft high.
Fall Creek is a small tributary of Mill Creek that tumbles down the cliff wall of Big Tujunga Canyon a little distance downstream of the point where the Fall Creek fire road crosses the river. These waterfalls are readily viewed (and studied) from the fire road on the other side of the canyon and so, unlike most other hikes, you have a chance to plan your rappels in advance.
This is a relatively short adventure hike that rappels down the four waterfalls by which Fall Creek makes its dramatic entrance into the Big Tujunga. These rappels are quite demanding (the last and highest is about 70ft high) and should only be undertaken after some simpler experiences. They represent an exciting (and wet) challenge, ideal for a warm spring or summer day.
THE MEET UP TIME AT RALPH'S WILL BE AT 7AM. We will then consolidate cars and drive to the trailhead together. Long pants and shirt is advised.
