The Brea-Carbon (Free) Canyons Loop is a 22.8-mile ride that starts and finishes at Carbon Canyon Regional Park in Brea. Besides the ride, the park is worth exploring, particularly for the grove of redwood trees. Redwoods? Yes—although these trees are not native to Southern California, these were planted in the mid-1970s and, through special care, have become the largest such grove in the region. The grove is located on the east end of the park, after a 1.1-mile walk/hike along the Carbon Canyon Nature Trail.
