Sierra Madre California Information

Sierra Madre California Information

Sierra Madre is set against the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains just 10 miles North of downtown Los Angeles.  Pasadena and Altadena is to the South West and Arcadia is South East of Sierra Madre California.

It’s a small town, with population of a bit over 10,500 per 2000 US Census.

As you’re driving through Sierra Madre, please slow down – Sierra Madre has no traffic lights within its city limit.  This town is also home to the only remaining volunteer fire department in the Greater Los Angeles area.

This small village in the Sierra Madre Canyon area is noted for being a distinct and unusual community. The Canyon is characterized by narrow and winding roads, lush vegetation, views of the San Gabriel Valley, and small bungalows or cabins.  The downtown has small restaurants and shops.

If you are thinking of taking a day trip to Sierra Madre consider the following:

E. Waldo Ward & Son – a small family farm that’s been canning fabulous jams and jellies since 1918.  Its tiny gift hop sits among the last remaining commercial orange groves in Los Angeles.  It is located at 273 East Highland Avenue and is closed Sundays.  Call 626-355-1218 for more info.

Mt. Wilson Trail – the winding 7.5 mile trek to historic Mount Wilson Observatory climbs from chaparral into pines, with spectacular views along the way.  Call 818-899-1900 for trail conditions before setting out on your journey.  It is located at Mira Monte Avenue and Mt. Wilson Trail Drive.

Some places to eat:

Bean Town – the gum-ball machine still costs a penny at this cozy coffee bar and bakery with yummy ice cream and live music on weekends.  Located at 45 North Baldwin Avenue – 626-355-1596.

Cafe 322 – craving Italian?  Cafe 322 is the place to go.  Try their manicotti al forno.  Located at 322 W. Sierra Madre Blvd.  626-836-5414.
