Monrovia Canyon Falls begins our 2016 quest to be fit and stronger. Turned 50 last month and its time to start a new chapter of fitness. A word of advice check the site to make sure the park is open. We went on new years day and the park was closed. Don’t try hiking during the holidays due to park closure. No restrooms or parking is available. Another good piece of advice is to not drink a large thermos of coffee before a hike.
Monrovia Canyon Falls Trail is about 3.4 miles. Depending on your pace will take 2 to 2.5 hours. Elevation gain is 750 feet. This hike is rated as moderate trek. Some parts of the trail are narrow so caution is needed.
