What to Expect

For those seeking an easy stroll down a canopied paved trail with relaxing water sounds, then the West Fork is for you! This 7-mile hike is located 14-miles above the city of Azusa, CA on Highway 39. This nationally designated bikeway is very popular with bicyclists who enjoy flat surface as they make their way towards Glenn Campground and eventually Cogswell damn.

During a hot-summer-day, hikers can cool off by dipping into the West Fork of the San Gabriel River under shade from Sycamore, White alder, and Willow trees. 

It’s important to note, however, this is one of the forest’s more popular hikes and the nearby West Fork parking lot only accommodates 45 vehicles (make sure to display an Adventure Pass) so it’s recommended to come very early in the morning or later in the afternoon to avoid the crowds.
