Although one gets hit up for the wonderful National Forest Adventure Pass fee, the hikes in Big Santa Anita Canyon are beautiful and cool, except on the hottest days of summer and fall. Sturtevant Falls is a 2 1/2 mile hike, first down and then moderately up. There is a beautiful pool under the falls in a wooded canyon. The last 1/2 mile of the return trip is steep. Fortunately Adams Pack Station is at the top with a full fridge of cold drinks. I recommend it as an outing, especially if you can go during the week. The weekends are crowded.
