Bane Canyon Road Professional Reviews and Guides
"Bane Canyon cuts through the northeast portion of the park. The ridges on either side of the canyon offer terrific views, especially in the spring when the park is green and wildflowers are blooming. This loop hike, the long way to McLean Overlook, features walks on both ridges.The panoramic views of the largely undeveloped hills are a striking contrast to the heavily built lands outside the park. This trail is popular with cyclists and horseback riders."

"This loop utilizes some of the least-used trails in Chino Hills State Park. Begin at the Bane Canyon entrance and climb into the state park. Before you get to the entrance gate, turn right on the Bane Ridge Trail and continue climbing. From the top of the ridge, veer right and head down the Sidewinder Trail. The singletrack wraps around a grassy hillside and then courses along a creek bed to the Upper Aliso Canyon Trail. Head left on this trail, cruise downhill to the Rolling M Ranch, and pick up Bane Canyon Road. After a short ride on the pavement, climb up the McClean Overlook Road to the East Fenceline Trail. This singletrack runs along the eastern boundary of the park, following a remote path, dipping and winding through grassland and shady arroyos. A final steep climb leads back to Bane Canyon Road, and then a short shot downhill leads back to the trailhead."
