One of the hiking trails in Yucaipa. Open all year to all skill level. One of those neighborhood trail through backyards next to a hill.
It's not really much to see. Walking thru your neighborhood is probably more exciting. There is a spot to stop off to ready a horse for riding, though.
The trail is maintained well and very wide. It goes along the hillside so you get a good view of nature while walking. Definitely a perk for the locals.
Great walk with family for small dogs and children! Recommended!!
Took lots of water and used all of it. The heat and lack of shade made the need for extra water a must. Little to no breeze in the canyons added to uncomfortable condition.
The trail is well maintained and well marked and well traveled. I saw different levels of skill and conditioning by other users, so it would be suitable for almost anyone.
Chapman Heights is a planned community in Yucaipa, California (where I live). It abuts the Crafton Hills. Most of these tracks are suggested neighborhood tracks for some exercise. I do like them, and some extend into the Regional Park which is a fine idea. The walk around the middle lake in the regional park is especially nice (lower lake also is good). You can get into the park for free from several angles as a hiker, biker, just don't enter from the "Oak Glen entrance kiosk" unloess you want to pay a small fee. You can walk/ride out for free.
