If you’re searching for the single most intriguing spot in the Chino Hills, you may find it in the upper reaches of Water Canyon. Concealed in the inky depths of this steep-walled ravine, massive sycamores and oaks reach skyward, casting a perennial chill. Except for the occasional buzz of a small aircraft and the rustle of leaves in the breeze overhead, the silence and stillness are absolute. The 2008 Freeway Complex Fire incinerated many of the mature trees in the canyon, but new trunks have been rising rapidly and the canyon is beginning to return to its former beauty.
