Bogart Park Trail is a 5.2 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Beaumont, CA that features beautiful wild flowers. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, birding, and horses. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail.
Go here every day to ride my bike. Definitely not the best but it is enjoyable with family and friends. Decent wildlife activity. Usually is dusty with loam all year till it rains then the trails are perfect. Would recommend taking kids up tractor hill to see all of cherry valley, Beaumont, and a little bit of banning. Mellow in some places and overgrown in others. Tons and tons of poison oak so be careful and make sure you are knowledgeable enough to spot it out and avoid it. Love this park
The scenery is great ! Once you're at the top you can see the whole town filled with it's beautiful mountains ! There's a lot of dead plants that's the only downside, but the hike itself is a workout !
not open today and would of cost $10.00 to enter lucky I was on foot I walked 1.5 miles just to get here and park was closed
Love our local trail and nature park. Last time hiking through saw a family of deer.
My latest GPX track ("Best Short hike") is only 3.4 miles if you don't do the "Noble Creek out and back" (though that's my favorite part of the Park thus far). Note this hike starts from outside the park, thus no strict requirement that you have to pay the entrance fee. The walk from the beginning (parking on the the street) into the park is quite nice, and needn't / shouldn't be avoided.
This park has potential. It's a county park that has a rarely open Kiosk, however - you can enter via a pay machine at the kiosk using exact change (meaning regardless of what the machine tells you, you have to deposite $10 exact, can't even use 2 - $5 bills). Note, some of the best trails begin right at the entrance on Cherry Avenue or Avenida Altura Bella. Whether you pay or not is up to your sense of what's fair. There are trees, a fair amount of shade, grass park, good playground, small pond, view points, old farm land, narrow valleys with shelf trails, horses, some biker tracks, and bathrooms with running water.
This park rivals Wildwood Canyon St Park close by. This park might have better scenery, more trees/shade, but the trails are not as well maintained (not a problem for a decent hiker). Like Wildwood, you can get lost, so do some research, and bring your GPS and tracks.
The most scenic areas are the trails to the west and North of the entrance road, just beyond the kiosk. then going up the entrance valley even beyond the "horse camp" (see my comments about the out and back Noble Creek GPX extension) . Then the large park area (complete with great kids climbing structure), the small pond, and the overlook hill just beyond with it's stone walled zig zag trail up (there's a loop fire road down if you want back to the pond area).
Will post best (shorter) track soon that has these features included.
The location map on here is completely wrong! It is off by at least 5 miles.
This is a county park and yes it does have a day use fee.
A bit confusing hiking this trail because at the trailhead it says a fee is required at the entry station, where's the entry station? nowhere to be found. Then your logic might tell you, was the entry station relocated in downtown? Getting a ticket will cost well over 12 times. Anyway took a chance and discovered this trail is actually not worth paying if the city was really requiring fees. Any trail that requires a fee has to be recognized by hikers as an awesome trail. Unfortunately this trail isn't one of those. Beaumont needs to take that signage down, because it's misleading and discourages hikers from going there if its now for free. There's no phone number or address where to pay the fee.
