Let’s take on a couple of parks at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains (Monrovia Canyon and Arcadia Wilderness Parks) that beginners would like. While there we can hike to Monrovia Falls. There’s a parking fee of $5.00 for the Monrovia Canyon Park. Once we complete the hike to the waterfall, we can take a five mile drive over to the Arcadia Wilderness Park, check that area out and have a picnic there.
MEETUP LOCATION AND TIME: Monrovia Canyon Park at 10:00 a.m. Use Google Maps for directions there. We’ll all meet at the parking lot near the ranger station.
