Lets start our Sunday with a nice picturesque hike to the Etiwanda Falls and then over to Day Canyon Creek in the North Etiwanda Preserve. I was there twice this week, and this hike is incredible! Day Canyon has so much more natural, unspoiled beauty than the popular Etiwanda Falls! I guarantee that everyone will love this hike! We will be visiting both lovely destinations! This is the Combo hike that you have been waiting for!!!

Lets meet at 8:45 AM for introductions, and plan to start on our way at 8:50 AM.

WHAT TO BRING: It should be fairly warm so dress appropriately and be sure to bring plenty of water, a snack, a sun hat, and sunscreen. Also, wear comfortable hiking shoes or trail runners. Trekking poles are not necessary, but may be useful crossing Day Creek, or on the way down if you use them.

*I will update the weather forecast as the hike gets closer.

DIRECTIONS: From the 210 Freeway (applies to both Eastbound and Westbound) in Rancho Cucamonga, exit on Day Creek Blvd. and drive North (towards the Mountains).
