Fish Canyon Falls

Fish Canyon Falls is beautiful three-tiered waterfall that drops over eighty feet in a canyon in the front range of the San Gabriel Mountains near Azusa. Early spring is the perfect time to visit the dynamic waterfall, when the water flows well and the canyon is green. A rock quarry occupies the bottom of Fish Canyon and for many years Fish Canyon Falls Trail could only be reached by shuttle on special access days.

Of the 365 days, only about 212 days are worth hiking to Fish Canyon Falls…November through May.

The Fish Canyon shuttle stop at the Gold Line end. The shuttle pulls up to the curb every thirty minutes on Saturdays, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The ride from the Gold Line parking lot to the trailhead takes around ten to fifteen minutes.
