Hike to Fish Canyon Falls

5 Miles Total - 800 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Allie Morris

Spring is the perfect time to hike to this beautiful, three-tiered waterfall nestled in the hills behind Azusa. If you're lucky, the wildflowers will be in full bloom!

Follow Encanto Parkway towards the hills until you come to a junction with a sign labeled "trail" that points towards a parking lot to your right. Parking is free, though on weekends it may be difficult to find a spot if you start late.

From the parking lot, the trial is clearly marked the entire way to the falls. It is a relatively easy hike, but watch out for poison oak along the trail! On a sunny day the cold water under the falls would be refreshing, and while we were there in March one brave soul jumped from the rock above the lowest tier of the falls.

Dogs are allowed on leash Saturdays and Sundays only.
