Eaton Canyon Waterfall

This hike says it's about 3 miles round trip but it feels much longer. It might be because you are rock-hopping/creek-crossing, especially towards the end, but it's still feels like you should get to the waterfall much quicker considering the map says it's 1.5 miles to get there. Anyways, it's still a nice hike, very easy til you get to the "bridge" at the 1-mile mark, and after that point still not too difficult, you just might end up getting your feet wet.

I didn't bring my camera along, but here are some cell phone pictures:

I went with a group of about 12 adults and 10 kids for my friend's birthday.
The bridge is the 1-mile mark.
Very cool canyon!
Beautiful waterfall
Time for lunch!
To get here, go north on Altadena from the 210 fwy. After New York Dr., take your first right. There is a parking lot and a trail at the north end of the lot. This hike was very busy, so I'd suggest going on a weekday if you don't like a crowd.
