Chino Hills State Park was established in 1984 on the hills dividing Orange County from San Bernardino County as a critical wildlife corridor between adjoining open spaces and as an escape for humans from the endless surrounding housing developments. Now comprising more than 14,000 acres of rolling hills, the park attracts an increasing number of hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians.

The trail was disappointing to myself, as our group ended up staying on the pavement, which became very warm on the feet. Those in shorts were initially bothered by the heavy brush, leaving scratches and rashes on their exposed skin, hence the decisions to stay on the trail. The trail itself was very easy and if not for the heat of the day would have been simply another walk. I was not expecting as much traffic on this trail as we encountered, but all enjoyed the cool shade covering the path at the end. It was a good walk for the younger ones and beginners. The natural surroundings, plants, reptiles, insects, and birds, made great conversation and added to the learning experience.
