Started our hike today on the Bill Cull Trail to Monrovia Canyon Falls. We got there before dawn, so we parked on Canyon Blvd. and walked to the Bill Cull Trailhead. The gate to the parking doesn’t open up until 7am on weekends, but the pedestrian gate is open to early hikers. We needed to be back early today, so this was the perfect hike. It is also our hike number 18 of the 52 Hike Challenge.
The Bill Cull trail eventually meets up with the Nature Trail and from here it is a short trek through a lush riparian canyon. The trail meanders easily through towering old oak trees, maple, sycamore and elder. It’s very pretty and smooth. A great place to bring your pup.
When we reached the falls, nobody else was there yet so we were able to have them all to ourselves for a little while before more hikers started to arrive.
This is a great hike if you’re pressed for time but still want to get out there and take in some nature.
