Runner Notes

Keep an eye out for horse droppings. This wide and steady trail is popular for horses.

Description

This trail takes you from the lower trails to upper/central trails and even out of the park if you take it to the end. Starting from Santiago Creek Trail, it winds up the hill with three switchbacks (you'll pass the Sage Ridge Trail on your right). Don't forget to take in the view as you come around each bend.

Near the end of a straightaway, there is a covered picnic table -- a great place to take a breather. Just after the rest area is the start of the Bumble Bee Trail on your right.

A few steep switchbacks take you to the top of a ridge and the start of the Grasshopper Trail to your right. You can see most of the eastern portion of the park from this location. Stay to your left to keep on the trail.

Next, the trail winds up and around the hill to the highest point of the trail and another covered picnic table. This a great photo op. Usually you can see all of Anaheim, Catalina Island, Signal Hill, and the whole park, of course.

Continuing on the trail, you'll come to a cross road with Peralta Hills Trail on the left and Anaheim Hills Trail (up to the highest point of the park -- Robber's Roost) to your right. Continue slightly left and immediately right to go down and out of the park.

Flora & Fauna

It is a pretty exposed trail. Mostly brush and tall grass. Right now (April) there a lots of yellow wildflowers. Lots of small critters (lizards, birds, rabbits, etc).
