ANGELES NATIONAL FOREST
Activity: Day Hike, Chasing Waterfalls
1.5 miles, 275’ elevation change, 45 minute duration, rated Easy
San Antonio Falls is fed from the snow melt of Mount San Antonio also know as Mount Baldy. That being said, the best time to view the falls with the most flow would be late Winter or earlier Spring. The delightful 80’ falls has several tiers to it as it takes a couple twists and turns.
The hike starts where you park just a little past Manker Flats Campground. It is a short jaunt and although there is some incline it is a fairly Easy hike. If you decide to climb down to the actual base of the falls there maybe a little scrambling to be had. If it appears too tough look around there might be a little easier route than the one that you chose.
On this day I combined this hike with that of nearby Stoddard Peak. In my opinion, both hikes are a little short, but combining the two made for a perfect outing. If you are hiking the aggressive trek to the Mount Baldy then you may need to soak your feet at the falls.
Thanks for joining me ‘Pursing Balance Through Adventure’ while chasing waterfalls near Mount Baldy. What better place to find that balance between the craziness of the real world filled sometimes with turmoil, strife, and struggle, but always busy- sometimes to the point of chaotic, sometimes life is dull and mundane- explore the other side of the pendulum… go kayaking, surfing, mountain biking, skiing snowboarding, sailing, hiking, backpacking, or in this case just sit quietly with nature next to a waterfall. The sound, the earthy smells, the lite spray on your face, the water tumbling and cascading down to the cool pool below.
