Monkeyface Creek drains a considerable portion of the southwest flank of massive 10,649′ San Bernardino Peak, and the substantial water flow over time has carved a spectacular gorge into the solid granite, forming one of the best canyoneering adventures in Southern California. As it drops precipitously near its mouth, the canyon features a series of 10 to 12 waterfalls stacked one on top of another in a short space of only about 1/2 mile. Most of these are accessible only to those with the requisite skill set – that is, only to canyoneers.
