Switzer Falls w/ David Bazelon {Animation}

  • 3302 Lake Avenue Altadena, CA, 91001 United States (map)

TRIP DESCRIPTION:

Switzer Falls is one of the best known waterfall hikes in Los Angeles County. This 50-foot waterfall can be reached easily with trail that follows a shaded creek down into a wooded canyon. Unlike past waterfall hikes, there’s a likely chance the waterfall will actually have water due to the recent rains!!

PEAK: Switzer Falls

DIFFICULTY: 2/5

SCENERY: A nice watery waterfall that is wet if you touch it

FUN FACT: Water expands by 9% when it freezes. Frozen water (ice) is lighter than water, which is why ice floats in water. Not that we’d be seeing any ice along the trails… hopefully…
