Trabuco Canyon Professional Review and Guide
"Starting from the east terminus of Trabuco Creek Road, an old truck road turned narrow footpath meanders up to some of the most idyllic spots in the Santa Anas. Upper Trabuco Canyon is home to Orange County’s biggest alder grove; to fine specimens of live oak, bay laurel, and maple; to a tiny community of madrones; and to a wide variety of spectacular spring wildflowers. Historically, the canyon is significant for its mining activity, and as the site of the killing of California’s last wild grizzly bear in 1908."
