We will all meet right at the beginning of the parking lot near the locked gate. From there we will walk down a short paved road 3/4 of a mile to the trail and then its 1.2 miles to Sturtevant Falls. After a break at Sturtevant Falls we will hike 3 miles back to Hermit Falls. We will take a 30 min break to eat and swim. There is lots of shade and scenery. We will then hike 1 mile back to the parking lot.
From the 210 freeway take the Santa Anita exit. Drive 5 miles north to Chantry Flats. There is a big parking lot. An adventure pass is required to park. I recommend arriving by 6:15 because the parking lot fills up fast on the weekends. If its full then park down the road paying attention to posted signs.
