Many people do not realize there are attractive water falls in the San Gabriel Mountains. The walk to Sturtevant Falls is an easy one, and very accessible. From the 210 Freeway in Arcadia, take the Santa Anita Avenue exit and drive north several miles to Chantry Flat, and walk from there — 3 miles to the falls and back. This is Hike No. 41 in John Robinson's book, Trails of the Angeles. For details of the trail, see Dan Simpson's web page. The photos below are from April 2007.
