Coal Canyon

Coal Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"The hike climbs a lovely canyon that hosts an intermittent arroyo and a seasonal waterfall. The area was an important battleground for preserving Southern California’s wildlife and acts as a crucial corridor for many species. Beginning on the Santa Ana River Trail, the hike travels alongside the cement-reinforced banks of the Santa Ana River. On the north side is the Green River Golf Course. The path follows this route for 1.0 mile before it turns left under the overpasses and enters the wilds of Coal Canyon. This immediate area was slated for development, housing tracts, and a freeway exit until it was discovered that the area provided a crucial gateway for wildlife in both the Chino/Puente Hills region and the Santa Ana Mountains."

Great hike once you reach the trail head, approx 1/2 mile from parking area, end of Greenriver rd. , follow Santa Ana River on bike trail, turn left under 91frwy overpass and you’ve reached start of the trail ...follow trail then follow in the dry riverbed all the way to the end of the boxed canyon. Very peaceful and not many hikers , you may run into 1-2 people.Easy hike w/very slight incline - lots of diff shrubs, bushes trees & rocks. Beautiful in spring w/all the indigenous flowers.
