The Hills For Everyone Trail is a hiking only footpath at the east end of Chino Hills State Park. The path follows a seasonal tributary of Aliso Creek through a small draw near the head of Telegraph Canyon. The lush riparian corridor is filled with groves of oak, sycamore, and walnut trees, with an understory of ferns, berry vines, and watercress. For hundreds of years, the drainage attracted the Gabrieleno Indians for hunting and food gathering. The 1.3-mile meandering footpath has interpretive panels that describe Gabrieleno Indian life, wildlife, and surrounding vegetation. At the west end of the loop is a picnic area and great views at Four Corners (a major trail junction). The trail descends back to the trailhead on the multi-use Telegraph Canyon Trail.

We may have missed the hiking trail portion of the hike, which according to the map is short. The ranger said that most of the signs are burnt down. The trail was all fire road the whole loop. This time of year the grasses were brown and most all of the trees are charred or burnt down from the fires a year or so back. Mostly mountain bikers on this road/trail. A good work out with some decent elevaion changes. My son liked it mostly for the adventure and father son time. I think I am spoiled, having hiked some amazing places outside of Southern California.

This trail is interesting because you start off hiking along a small river bed, under oaks and sycamores. The second half is on a broad dirt road overlooking the rolling hills of the area. Too bad that there are so many power lines crossing the hills. Although it was 90 degrees, there was a steady breeze in the canyon and over the hills. Apart from having to duck under some trees and a couple of steep, slippery inclines, the hike is easy to do.
