September 3-Hike Big Santa Anita Canyon loop from Chantry Flats: It is 9.4 mile loop with a 2100’ elevation gain, mostly shady, with several shallow stream crossings and a stop at 50 ft tall Sturtevant Falls..Bring lunch, snacks, lots of water and wear sturdy boots. Poles help if you have them. We will meet at the trailhead at 7:00 AM for best parking. Upon arrival, if the parking is full in all of the lots, you have to park along the side of the road down the hill from the first lot and hike up to the trailhead. A Forest Adv Pass must be displayed. Hikers from Santa Clarita can meet at Towsley Cyn Park outside the gates at 6 AM to organize carpools. The leader will meet you at the trailhead at 7 AM. To get to the trailhead, take I-210 to Arcadia, exit on Santa Anita Ave and head north. Continue to the edge of the city, pass a sturdy gate, and ascend along a curving asphalt rode to the road's end, Chantry Flat (apx 6 miles), where you pass the trailhead meeting place near a bathroom and enter the first parking lot. Leader: Nikki
