TRAIL WALKTHROUGH: Park on the assigned the hillside/dirt area across from the the golf course. We will gather at the corner, cross the street to reach the hidden trail head and start hiking North on the trail that runs along the hill. This trail is mostly leveled ground with a couple of small humps, runs under the 210 fwy crossing the creek then goes moderately up hill towards the Devil’s Gate Dam, Hahamongna Watershed Park and reservoir area which provide nice views of the now dry but vegetation covered dam reservoir, San Gabriel Mountains as well as Nasa’s JPL. We continue for about a mile on a narrow but clearly marked trail, descent on to a paved road, reach our turn back point, enjoy a short break and head back to loop around the East side of the golf course to the starting point via a dirt fire road.

MY FRIEND SAID I CAN DO THIS HIKE, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT, RIGHT?
Contrary to popular belief, you know your body and hiking experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiker, please read our hike details page as the hike may not suite your experience level. We have a better experience if every hike has hikers of the intended level.
DOG-FRIENDLY?: Friendly (all dogs must be on leash)
PARKING FEE: There is no cost in to park at the meeting point and at the trail head.
