On the slopes of Mount San Antonio, San Antonio Creek flows through a spectacular alpine canyon studded with large big cone Douglas fir. Clear days offer visitors to its upper watershed outstanding views all the way to Catalina Island. The magnificent 75 foot-high San Antonio Falls draws many hikers, as do the access trails to the Sheep Mountain and Cucamonga Wilderness. The creek corridor is also popular destination for families escaping the summer heat as well as for winter sports activities, including cross-country skiing.
