Beautiful hike with my grand daughter but there was graffiti which took away from the beauty and too many dogs all over the place and barking which took away from the peacefulness.

Go in the cool of the morning. Can get very hot. Or go in February when things are green and weather is nice.

Eaton canyon is a favorite for hikers and all outdoor enthusiasts. Tis is a great place for fist timers or every weekend. Extremely busy on weekends, parking is free but had to get. Much better during week days. Bring plent of water on hot days.
