This is a nice stroll through Cattle Canyon, though. It's like an easier version of the East Fork Trail without the bridge and crowds. There's a bunch of river crossings, so expect to get your feet wet.

Closed to off-roading when we got there - fortunately there's an OHV Area nearby.

As the description above says, the Cattle Canyon Trail is basically an easier version of the East Fork Trail without the bridge. It offers scenic canyon views and a couple of views of Mt. Baldy. The only downside is that it's an off road trail (I prefer hiking trails over roads). That said, it's more interesting than walking on a fire road. Be prepared to get your feet, as there's a dozen or so river crossings.
