Hiking Trails

Eaton Canyon

Eaton Canyon, located in Pasadena, California is one of my favorite hiking trails. There are a few different paths to take when you arrive. At the end of one of the trails is a waterfall.  The best time to hike this trail is during the morning or early evening due to the heat. There is shade along the way and picnic tables at the beginning. The nature center is also a fun place to visit. You can learn about the animals that live in the nearby areas and learn about hiking safety.
