To call the San Gabriel Mountains a Santa Paula attraction is ridiculous. They are located many miles from here, and aren't visible from here. This is ridiculous.

Mother’s day… We planned a family hiking trip @ Sturtevant Falls in the San Gabriel Mountains. All seven of us went trekking. It is one of the finest waterfalls in Angeles National Forest. The 3.25-mile hike from Chantry Flats Road to Sturtevant Falls follows a...More

It's hard to believe you are so close to this much population. There are lots of hiking trails and streams easily accessible for day hikes and overnight camping (You need a permit). My favorites are: Old Baldy, 5th stream crossing, and Ice House Canyon.
