This hike is just one segment along the Gabrieleno National Recreation Trail (which is just over 28 miles long in its entirety). This short portion of the trail is a shady trek that mostly follows the San Gabriel River. This area suffered far less damage from the Station Fire and the trail is in good condition throughout. The San Gabriel River is often in view when the trail isn’t next to it. There are some small river crossings.
