The staff at Azusa Rock understands that providing access to Fish Creek is a priority to the community. Therefore, we will continue to schedule frequent access to Fish Creek at no cost.

The Fish Canyon Trail leads to one of the most beautiful local waterfalls in the region located in the pristine Angeles National Forest.

Along the 5-mile hike you will find impressive greenery. The canyon is full of Big-leaf maples, California bays, alders and live oaks. In springtime you will see an assortment of wildflowers including the California poppy, lupine, campanula, larkspur and brodiaea line the walls of this enchanted forest. Stone foundations, walkways, and walls of old cabin sites from the early 1900s can be seen. The cabins were destroyed in a fire and flood in the late 1950s. The culmination of the hike is the breath-taking Fish Canyon Falls. This waterfall drops 90 feet in three stair-stepped tiers, finally sliding its way into a large and clear pool.

Fish Canyon is just two miles off the Foothill Freeway. It is an integral part of the San Gabriel River system, which connects the mountains to the sea. This crucial life line of the Greater Los Angeles Basin is a top priority for Azusa Rock. Vulcan Materials, in keeping with its commitment to environmental stewardship, is making the access to Fish Creek a top priority.
