Moist Canyon

This canyon ends in a large alluvial fan south of the meadow, almost directly across the wash from north end of the parking lot. It's only a couple of hundred yards from the Nature Center.

You can hike up the well-marked trail for a long distance, but when you reach the upper section keep in mind that you are behind the Pasadena Police Department Firing Range. Although to our knowledge there has never been a report of an injury from that source, people occasionally find bullets on the ground.

The going is mostly moderate, but can become steep and overgrown in places. After a short distance you'll find a cutoff to the right, but it ends approximately 150' later in an area rich in poison oak , so be careful. This caveat applies to the entire canyon.
