Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park, a wilderness in name only, spreads over 540 acres of rolling hills and oak-lined ravines, and includes about 5 miles of trails open to hikers, equestrians, and mountain bikers. Like much of Orange County’s foothills, this area was until recently home to far more cattle than people. Hardly pristine in a biological sense, the park nonetheless preserves a nice pocket of open space that will permanently resist the bulldozer blade used to develop the surrounding hills and canyons.
