Schabarum Park Trail is a 3.5 mile loop trail located near La Puente, CA. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking, trail running, and mountain biking.
I was hiking counterclockwise starting at the corner of Amar and Lemon. The trail started right next to Amar at level ground for a while,which make it a nice warm up for the hike. Once it make a left and start to go up hill, it give one a good workout until it reach the top. From there on, the road is well developed, more like a park then a hiking trail. Overall it is a great trail for those live in the area. But not worth a long drive to get here.
trail head on gps does not have parking or anywhere to pull over, have to go around and find parking in residential area. A portion of this trail is right by the road and kinda by residential neighborhoods. look ahead on Google maps satellite to scout ahead (I regretfully didn't) to see if it's for you.
I do this hike about once a week... It's one of my faves.. However I go through the tougher route.. Which almost comes out to 8 miles.. My Apple Watch says 7.68 and it calculated going up 89 flights of stairs.. I've seen coyotes but they r not harmful and or just didn't bother us.. Great hike overall
It was really good. Saw many flowers, birds and even a baby rabbit. Good workout I would say
Great for exercise, in a beautiful location and the wildflowers were gorgeous.
Shabarum has alot to offer.This park has many BBQ pits and restrooms, areas you can rent, and they even have aTennis Court. This entire park is great for picture taking and it is often to see people getting their maternity pictures taken here.
Located at the top of the park is their hiking trail. You can comfortably high step it to the top and run back down to the bottom in 47 mins. Once you get to the top, you have 2 options, take the trail to the right (to the electrical tower) or take the steps. I'd suggest to take the steps, because you will really feel accomplished once you make it to the top and take a look around to the beautiful San Gabriel Valley. Take the trail further to the left, you will be able to see Orange County & on a clear day you can see the Pacific Ocean & Catalina Island!
The trail should lead you to the Equestrian Center and the Beautiful Cherry Blossom trees ;)
