Where  Eaton Canyon Nature Center

Notes  The Eaton Canyon waterfall has been one of my favorite hiking destinations for 20 years, the trail sporting a spectacular view around every corner.

To start our adventure please meet up at The Eaton Canyon Nature Center next to the patking lot. We'll hike north, following the fire road and crossing the creak. During the first 1.5 miles - before passing under the Toll Road bridge - there is very little elevation change.

The trail through the upper canyon may be rough, or non-existent at times, but the destination is well worth the effort. Oh, did I mention that you will probably get your feet wet?
