A ridgeline trail on the north side of Santiago Oaks Wilderness Park.

Paul Stewart

Overview

Open 7am to sunset.
Features: Birding — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife
Dogs: Leashed

Runner Notes

There are a few rocky sections and the dirt can make it pretty slippery.

Description

The trail starts at the intersection of Oak Trail and Anaheim Hills Trail near the north entrance to Santiago Oaks Regional Park and travels along a ridgeline down to the Wilderness Trail near the main park entrance. The upper section provides a nice view of the park and includes a bench to rest and take in the view. On clear days you can see Catalina Island.

After the bench, there is a short little dip towards another side-trail exit and then back up to the ridgeline. The dip is steep and rocky, so watch your footing. You continue gradually down along the ridgeline before making the final descent.

The descent is a switchback with a few rocky sections. The trail levels off near the end with a final straightaway to the Wilderness Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Trail is surrounded by brush and bushes. Right now there a some yellow and purple wildflowers. I've seen a gopher snake and a coyote on this trail. Critters come out in the evening around sun down. There is a rock formation on the side of the ridge where turkey vultures will hang out.
