Description: Switzer Falls is an excellent hike in the San Gabriel Mountains, north of Pasadena and Los Angeles. This area has lots of history, beautiful canyon views, and two nice waterfalls. This hike takes you downhill to the waterfall and then uphill on the way back, and it can be crowded on the weekends, so know that in advance. Find the details of this hike in the below link
