This park is perfect for taking hikes with your family, even younger kids. There is even a paved road that goes uphill if you just want to enjoy the scenery.

A little bit of heaven, here in Monrovia. Not far from the center of the City, you escape into the wilderness. You can see wildlife (mule deer, bears - yes!, snakes and many more animals). And you will experience a nice hike to the Monrovia...More

Gorgeous park setting, well maintained trail, facility rental for parties, all in all a great day at the park. Weekends a bit crowded from locals and parking get attrocious but street parking available, just adds to the hike

I rented cabins in the park for a Halloween party. They used to have a haunted hike during Halloween. It was the best. Beautiful waterfall. Easy to hike to.
