A $25,000 donation to the Altadena Foothills Conservancy will enable the non-profit to study a trail from Eaton Canyon to the Rio Hondo River in Rosemead, ultimately enabling a large trail system in the San Gabriel Valley. "The system would connect Arcadia to Whittier, through Temple City and Rosemead, and loop around the other side of Whittier Narrows park up through Industry and Baldwin Park to reach Irwindale," according to the Daily News. The trail would run along the mostly-concreted Eaton Wash that's currently off limits to the public. Last month, a 20-acre site was secured as open space by residents and the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy.
