Quick Links

Eaton Canyon Natural Area Park and Nature Center is a natural preserve located at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains.  This scenic 198 acre natural area was originally called “El Precipicio” by Spanish settlers because of its steep gorges, and was later named after Judge Benjamin Eaton a progressive pioneer, who was the first to use irrigation from Eaton creek to grow grapes on the slopes.  Visitors can explore Eaton Canyon’s expansive hiking and equestrian trails, along with a staging area, seasonal streams, abundant native plants and wildlife and a nature center with displays, live animals, classrooms, auditorium and gift shop!
