Arcadia Things to Do: 15 reviews and 62 photos

Drive 5 miles north on Santa Anita from 210 freeway, after purchasing a day pass from one of the nearby stores. Chantry Flats is a steep climb up inot the San Gabriel Mountains. Sufficient parking but better to go early to be sure of getting a spot in the parking lot. Ranger station available. most popular hike involves taking a fairly steep downward hike to Stuyvesant Falls waterfall which is really pretty, especially after the rains. On the trails north of the parking lot beware of bicyclists on the narrow trails as they don't alweays leave a lot of room as they whoosh by. Lots of local fauna and flora to see so a nature guide might be helpful.
