Switzer Falls w/ Mike Bunn

  • Switzer Falls Switzer Truck Trail CA United States (map)

Come join us on a hike to one of the most popular waterfalls in Angeles National Forest! And as one of LA's few dog friendly hikes, you may see some particularly good views along the way. The hike meanders back and across the stream running down the spectacular Arroyo Seco Canyon. The stream is lined with trees, with the water cascading over granite into mirror-like pools. We may also make a burrito stop because it is Professor Bunn's favorite food! 

PEAK: Switzer Falls



SCENERY: From waterfalls to sweeping mountain views to deep canyon gorges, this trail has it all.
