Syllabus
Fish Canyon Falls is a 3.3 mile round trip hike with 620 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 12 miles east of Pasadena California. The trailhead is car accessible. July and August are the best months to enjoy this hike.


Overview: Fish Canyon fall is a 4 tier fall that flows from mid-winter through spring. The trail follows the creek or goes up along canyon walls. There are remnants of cabins that existed in the canyon for the first half of 20th century and then were destroyed by fire and floods. Azusa Rock quarry operates in the canyon mouth, so access to the short trail is limited by the days when quarry provides a shuttle (see here). On other days you can use an official Fish Canyon trail (8.5 mi roundtrip, AEG 2800 ft) that goes around quarry and is overgrown because of rare use.

    To hike
    In LA area drive north on I-605 to its end just north of I-210. Turn right (east) onto Huntington Drive at the signal. Pass another two signals and turn left onto Encanto Parkway at non-signaled intersection. On days when shuttle is provided: drive north on Encanto Parkway to the quarry entrance, register at the gate and proceed to the parking lot, shuttle van will take you through the quarry site to the trailhead. On days when there's no shuttle: drive north on Encanto Parkway just past Van Tassel fire road, park at the dirt lot on left, this is the official trailhead for the complete Fish Canyon Trail.
