Santa Anita Canyon
Above Irwindale its main stem is known as Santa Anita Creek, which extends another 10 miles (16 km) northwards into the San Gabriel Mountains where the source headwaters of the river are found. The 'Big Santa Anita Canyon' with Santa Anita Creek is part of the watershed of the Rio Hondo, which flows from the mountains through the San Gabriel Valley and passes through the Whittier Narrows, a natural gap in the hills which form the southern boundary of the San Gabriel Valley.
Santa Anita Canyon Road, constructed in the 1930s, provides access from Arcadia to the Chantry Flat Recreation Area and the Pack Station, in the Angeles National Forest. Trails lead to Sturtevant Falls and other features.
