This hike has many stream crossings! You'll most likely get your shoes wet! We'll have to use rocks and fallen trees to cross the streams.
The rock crossing can be slippery.
I'm not planning on hiking the whole way! I'll return when either my shoes gets drenched or when the crossing looks too difficult to cross--stop at the broken bridge. The group is welcome to keep going! You can leave at any time. It is easy to find your way back.
This hike is scenic with lush green areas with lots of streams. You'll see JPL. It is the place that sends & controls the Mars Rover!
The hike is 6.5 miles RT with about 400 ft. elevation gain.

Bring the following: 1-2 quarts water, lunch, hiking shoes, light jacket and sunscreen. Optional to bring extra pair of socks or shoes.
Meet at 1:30 PM near the trailhead, at the parking lot by JPL (corner of Windsor Ave and Ventura St., Pasadena). Leave at 1:45 PM.
The parking lot is small so you may have to park on the residential streets.
There are no bathroom facilities at the trailhead.
Don't recommend this hike for beginners!
