The 10 Best Waterfall Hikes In the Los Angeles Area

The Grotto

Brush off your bouldering skills for this truly unique three-mile expedition, which takes you to a small, slightly hidden grotto surrounded by giant rocks. You’ll find a mini waterfall at the grotto’s base and — as long as you’re willing to get a little dirty — plenty of opportunities to explore.
Difficulty level: 3

Sturtevant Falls

Sierra Madre
City dwellers yearning for an escape will find it in this picturesque and mostly shaded 3.5-mile hike, starting at the Chantry Flats trailhead in sprawling Angeles National Forest. Along the way, you’ll spot rich foliage, occasional wildlife, and a handful of privately owned rustic cabins nestled in the forest. Be prepared for a few obstacles — like shallow stream crossings and a hilly incline toward the end — that make you feel as if you’re in a real-life Super Mario Bros. game.
Difficulty level: 3
