Parking lot is right off of Carbon Canyon Road---before the turn left. Cost is $5.00 and secures a safe gravel-parking place for mountain bikers, hikers or joggers on this mostly unpaved trail. This trail is also accessible to lake parking (by lake or tennis courts) facilities. Visitor center offers great FREE trail maps for all levels of hikers: newbie to senior hiker. Restrooms (clean) are at the visitor center and the rangers are happy to answer any questions you may have. Carry in water unless dehydration and headaches appeal to you LOL. As we were finishing up today, coyotes made music for a melodic send off. Numerous challenges and records for the competitive exist on mapmyride or strava applications. Telegraph canyon to San Juan hill is scenic, sunny and mile heavy. Challenging and views to ocean. Soquel is stunning!
Great local trails to explore. Requires $5 parking fee per car, make sure to take a $5 bill. If you have a bigger bill, youll be donating the rest. Went up the bane Ridge Trail to check out the wild poppy flowers fields. Drive up until you reach the house trail. Make a right into the trails and park in the big dirt parking lot. The trail entrance is on the right once parked. The poppy field isnt huge but its still a great sight to see. I would advise you to wear long pants as you are walking through fields of flowers and weeds and it can be itchy if youre not covered. Fairly easy walk, just a mild incline. If youre going for the poppy flowers, might be better to go closer to noon. This allows the flowers to bloom and open.
Chilling in the Suburban subdivision on a small Side Road Chino Hills State Park sits. Its a long narrow road up, and for people that arent used to drive and Country Roads, might find it challenging. I went in the spring on the early Friday afternoon, many locals use the hill as an endurance test, but more than one looked at the back of my empty pickup truck bed as I passed. March 24th, 2017 and wildflowers are breaking off! I had my elderly dad with me so much hiking didnt happen but the trails look very inviting and challenging. Many people were enjoying them. If youre in the area you could do worse for a Hidden Gem of a State Park.
DO NOT put the address into your GPS to find this place, it will take you on a wild goose chase through a swanky upscale neighborhood that only leads you into a cattle gate that if you access by anything but foot(which I would not recommend due to snakes)& (according to a nice resident informed me) the actual visitors center is about 8 more miles up the freeway that doesnt even show up on the Google search of this place. Be warned
This park is beautiful, it has so many places you can go. This park reaches all the way down into Yorba Linda which gives you an idea of how big it is! I recommend going here with your family and friends as it is a nice place to look down at an amazing view and a spectacular place to explore. I see many people most of the time riding their bikes, walking, and flying remote controlled airplanes. There is so much to do there!
One of my favorite local State Parks! Great for hiking, mountainbiking, and camping now that the campground is open. So many great trails to explore and help you get away from the concrete jungle. When its green, it is absolutely awesome. Telegraph is a great beginner trail to mountainside. Bovinian Delight is my favorite hiking trail in the park. You will regularly see coyotes, mule deer, and all sorts of birds.
The park really changed. I used to mountain bike on the single tracks, but they were completely covered with large weeds that made it impossible to get through without scratching yourself (and getting super itchy skin after a day or two). There is a solid road that goes through the park. I havent explored the rest of the mountain bike trails, but the old single tracks on the hills are now gone.
Rain or drought, there is always beauty to be found here. While not boasting any technical challenges, if you choose to take a mountain bike, youll have no trouble finding scenic routes. Just be mindful that after the rains, while youll be treated by some amazing greenery, youll also miss out on some of the more rewarding trails due to overgrowth.
Free to walk into the park. Parking is 5 dollars if you drive into the park. Park has limited parking inside but you can park on the street in front of main entrance. Beautiful place to go on a hike. Many trails for single track riding and hiking. Really not much to see out there but it is definitely a nice nature walk or ride in the area
Hiked up in the month of August about 100°F so the flowers werent on bloom yet the paved road hike was moderate in challenge level uphill most of the way until you reach the covered picnic table. The only facilities with water fountain is at the entrance so bring water. Was told when flowers in bloom this is an amazing view.
We went mountain biking here. The scenery is beautiful with the lush green landscape and rolling hills. Nothing technical on the trails but a lot of trails you can string together to achieve 20+ miles and 3k feet of elevation. Highly recommend the trails here to work on endurance.
One of the few remaining undeveloped spaces in the LA Basin. Enjoy the natural resources and walk on the many trails. A short distance away at Carbon Canyon Regional Park you can also visit a hidden redwood grove, the largest in Southern California.
this is a wonderful place to hike, lots of trails and great views! San Juan Hill is a must for every one. due to the lack of shade this park is hot in the summer. but if u start early enough u will only catch the sun on the way back.
This was a nice open space that my wife and I decided to check out. It was a little disappointing. The landscape was predominately grassy hills with few trees or landmarks. However, it was a nice getaway in the middle of the city.
New paved road makes it easy to drive up into the park. Lots of recent improvements, and miles of hiking, cycling and horseback riding trails. A well kept secret tucked into the hills west of the city of Chino, CA.
Beautiful and recently updated, lots of people park outside and hike in but its worth the 5$ to drive in and park. The trails you have access to are far better, and there are well maintained restrooms available.
Awesome trails to hike! Parking cost $5, but is totally worth it to maintain the trails, park benches, and roads. Make sure to bring plenty of water and snacks. Trails can be unexpectedly long.
They said if I wanted to hunt a bear Id have to bring my own. Then they said I couldnt sue them for bear-related injuries suffered on their property. Back to the drawing board, I guess.
Lots a trails for hiking, biking and exploring. Last visit many of the trails are almost overgrown and hard to get through. Have been camping a few times and have a ton of fun.
Beautiful, rolling mountains. When you are hiking, it it so quiet and peaceful that you forget that civilization is near. A great place to get away but also very accessible.
