Meet at the trailhead at 9:00 am, from there we’ll explore the San Gabriel mountains in the Angeles National Forest. We’ll take a meandering path through running streams, where your feet will get wet so please choose your footwear according to what will make you most comfortable. We’ll break besides the waterfall, where you can rest on the rocks, swim, and enjoy snacks before doubling back.

Additional Information

The Switzer Falls Hike is 3.7 miles with 692 ft of elevation gain. This hike's difficulty is moderate and will take 2.5 hours from start to finish with a 30 min waterfall picnic — pack a snack for you to enjoy. Due to the heat and lack of tree cover in parts, we recommend no dogs allowed on this hike. This trail is located on Tongva Gabrieleno and Fernandeño Tataviam lands.

Hikers will need to purchase a Southern California Daily Forest Adventure Pass for $5 by using the store locator to find a vendor or display their America the Beautiful Annual National Parks Pass. Carpooling is recommended, and cell service is unreliable. Exact parking and exact meeting location will be in your confirmation email. 

This hike’s spotlight organization is the Nature Conservancy in California. You have the option to donate when registering.
