This hike was very long and ruthless. We decided to hike from Colby Camp to Monkey Canyon, we only made it to the bridge. This hike took us about 6 hours plus. First half of the hike there was water, but it wasn’t flowing too well. Lots of swimmin holes on the way and a few pretty good sized cliff jumps. Second half of the hike there was no water or trail, just us and the rattlers. We did a car shuttle and while waiting for Throb and Dr. Seven Layer Burrito, The Pump took some HDR photos.
Directions- 210 to Angeles Crest Hwy in La Canada/Flintridge. Go up the mountains and turn left at Angeles Forest Hwy. Drive 8.4 miles to Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Rd and turn right. Drive 1.3 miles and turn right onto Colby Ranch Rd. Drive to the end of the road and park in the parking lot. Follow the trail downstream for 15 min to get to the first fall. Hike another 20 min downstream to get to second fall. Another 45 min to a real nice cliff jump spot. And big ups to our friends at HowToAvoidTheBummerLife. Check out their site. They have an article about a sweet swmmin spot up north.
