Sierra Club Hike: Monrovia Canyon Park

How lovely is Canyon Park in Monrovia?

The Sierra Club Activities Guide said this very easy hike to a waterfall was suitable for families, and it definitely was. We had one child with us and several senior citizens. No one had any trouble walking along the mostly flat trail.

From the upper parking lot it was less than a mile each way to the waterfall. For a longer hike and to avoid the $5.00 parking fee, you can park at the lower lot.

After the hike and picnic lunch, my friends and I thanked our Sierra Club guides and continued on a hike of our own up to the Ben Overturff trail head.

As we were out of time when we got there and one person in our group was out of energy, we could only look longingly at this enticing trail and make plans to hike it another day.

Helpful Hint: When you visit Canyon Park, make sure to stop at the Nature Center first and pick up the Trails Map or you can look at it online here. Definitely bring your kids and a picnic lunch. Dogs are allowed on a leash.

    Wow this is beautiful. How far away is this park? I will put it on my list for the next time I’m in SoCal. How many miles can you do there?
