Antonovich Trail in San Dimas was a fun hike with the kids. A lot of shade, a nice stream, and things to look at. Plenty of little spots to explore and teach the kids about.

Antonovich Trail Visiting Information

- Daylight hours
- Entry price:
- Free. Drive towards the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation on Valley Center Ave and on the right you will see a sign to park at the trail.
- Time spent:
- 1 hour 15 mins
- Stroller/Wagon friendly:
- What we observed:
- The area has lots of poison ivy. It’s best to stay on the path.
- The trail runs parallel to the creek, and there are quite a few streams to cross. Bring shoes that you are willing to get wet in and a hiking stick to keep your balance.
- The path is well-shaded.
- Dogs and horses also walk the trails.
- The creek is not the clearest of waters.
- With all the no parking signage in the residential area, we imagine that this trail is very busy on the weekends and would recommend visiting it during the weekday.
Our Antonovich Trail Montage
This is a nice easy trail to bring younger kids on. The water in the stream and the abundance of shade really make the trail a memorable one. Also, we would like to stress that parking near the Buddhist center is a lot safer for families with younger kids. Instead of having to park on the side of a busy street, the parking lot down by the center is nice and out of the way.
