Eaton Canyon Falls

There is something about a waterfall: Its hypnotic movement and meditative white noise, its irresistible pull as you draw near, the sound growing from hiss to rumble. L.A. is surrounded by dozens of waterfalls. Some of the best are also the most easily accessed: John Muir described Eaton Canyon Falls as "a charming little thing, with a voice sweet as a songbird's." An easy mile-and-a-half ramble up the Eaton Wash leads to this deliciously cool resting spot full of reflected light. Read more at the Eaton Canyon website.
