LITTLE DALTON CANYON (LOWER MONROE MOTORWAY) MYSTIC CANYON TRAILS

This is a strenuous five-mile hike. Park at the first horseshoe curse on Glendora Mountain Road, 1 mile north of the Big Dalton Canyon Road. There is limited roadside parking here. There used to be a campground at this location. If the gate on Glendora Mountain Road is closed, park at the gate parking lot, approximately 3/4 mile north of the junction of Big Dalton Canyon Rd. We will hike up the Lower Monroe Motorway along the Little Dalton Canyon stream bottom. The motorway turns southward and continues to the junction of the Mystic Canyon Trail. The group will follow this trail down to Big Dalton Canyon and follow the roads back to the parking area.

BIG DALTON CANYON TRAILS  

The following trails will be used: Wren-Meacham, Big Dalton Trail, Pavil Canyon Trail, Keiser Trail, Coulter Pine Trail, Dunn Canyon Trail. This is a strenuous 4 mile walk. Park at the Glendora Equestrian Center. This is approx. 0.4 miles north of Sierra Madre Ave. on the east side of Glendora Mountain Road. Turn right (east) at the signal at the junction of Boulder Springs Road and Glendora Mountain Road. The exit leads immediately into the equestrian Center. Turn to the right (south) and park on the dirt surface parking area. The hike begins here and goes across the Dalton Washes and on to the Wren Meacham Trail which leads over the ridge into Big Dalton Canyon. This is by far the steepest portion of the hike. We will proceed upstream via the Couler Pine Trail and Dunn Canyons Trail until we reach the junction with Pavil Canyon and Keiser Trails. From here, we will walk back down canyon via the Coulter Pine Trail and Dunn Canyon Trails. We will walk the remaining distance back to the Equestrian Center unless the group leader arranges for a car shuttle among group participants.
