It’s a great spot for an easy to moderate hike through the California terrain. Accessible via an ornate gate off of westbound Colima road. Takes about an hour or so to complete the entire loop and there are some mild inclines at some points whether you start out on the left hand side path or the right hand path. I went right as a an out-of-shape noob as opposed to left, which apparently is said to be the best workout. While you get a decent amount of incline even when using the right hand path, I can see how going left would yield a longer length of incline. Still, I felt as though my blood was pumping when I finished my trek but not as though I’d pass out from it which was my goal all along. I like this spot for the dedicated FREE parking at the trail head. Although small, i had no problem finding a spot on a 1:00pm Sunday afternoon as it didn’t seem to be highly trafficked. There’s a porta potty and water fountain in the lot as well as lots of signage to either teach you about the area’s fauna or to guide you as you hike about in and out of the valley. There’s a mix of dirt paths and paved paths. Great views of the city and hillside. Just watch out for dog or horse poo and take some water. I’ll be coming back to this spot for sure.

Great trail. Great trail
Very quiet and especially love its open sunrise to sunset

Beautiful trail. Not crowded. Harder than moderate if you are out of shape! Lots of side paths if you want to explore. Parking on street or there is a (free I’m pretty sure) lot further up.

Really nice trail. Enjoyed the morning with a good view of the city.

Beautiful trail with some steep inclines you can hike a lot or adjust the distance as you are going because theres many paths interconnecting. We did the whole 6 miles with our 1yr old pup and it was a good workout.

The downfall:( my dog contracted a TICK for the first time!!!there are long grasses and plants and also passed a section where there were horses.....so if you take your dogs be careful. Spray some anti-flea/tick on ur pets before going to the park. Definitely check your pets specially if they have long hair.

Just in case: this was the most helpful in removing engorged ticks and it truly worked:

wear gloves and apply alcohol on ur dogs spot after removal and follow with antiseptic ointment.

Anyways, I would probably go back because it was a great trail with beautiful views, 2 parking areas, one by a park and other following a dirt road(all trails map took us past both parking spots and we had to go back so keep ur eyes open for a wood sign)and ease of access. Overall, recommend this trail. Happy Hiking:)

Easy to follow trail. I parked on Saleroso Dr to bypass the parking fee of the park. It was a nice cool day when I went and so I didn’t need to wear a sun hat. If you are doing this on a sunny day, wear a hat and sunscreen because it is exposed. I hiked this with my small dog and he enjoyed himself as well. There are horses on this trail, so naturally there’s horse poop along the trail. Overall, I will visit this trails again on my morning walks!

Nice moderate hike. Completed the hike in 2.5 hours with my small dog. It’s a great hike to do in the morning, it is exposed starting mid-day. Similarly to others here, I parked in the parking lot off of Fullerton Rd. It fits about 25 vehicles and there were about 5 spots when we arrived at 8:30am. There is also a port-a-potty in the parking lot, which is nice (disclaimer: someone took a giant dump outside of the toilet on a corner of the port-a-potty, ew.)

Looks like a part of the area is in the process of being restored. There was a water system that I think is there to help with the growth. I’m assuming that this area was affected by the fires last summer.

There are so many trails to choose from! I stuck with the path laid out by AllTrails however you can go on for longer than 6 miles if it strikes your fancy. I followed the trail by recording my hike in this app.

Overall, it was a nice way to spend my morning. I will definitely come back in the spring or fall.

c'mon nschedule mm

Epic time! Beautiful wildlife and plants. Great for picnics...truly a fun time!

I’ve lived in La Habra all my life. This hike is mellow and a great conversation hike or even an opportunity to get away solo. Drive slow on entry, some potholes are treacherous for smaller cars. Otherwise you’re good to go.

It's a good beginner hike or just a quick fun cardio session for those with hiking experience! If you want it to be more on the moderate side like it mentions, start by going to the left, it is more uphill with some good hills to get your blood flowing.

Not good to hike. It’s a plain straight trail with a lot of dog turd. It’s good for a simple run.

Great winter/spring hike in cooler weather.

Excellent set of trails. I spent about 2 hours hiking the various trails, and could have easily spent longer.

good hiking trail for all level.

I loved it! Only hiked for 6 miles but it was worth it, mostly uphill so not for beginners, it’s great for building up stamina for more difficult hikes. I’d definitely recommend it.

Was a beautiful day and a good hike, saw a hawk, road runner, coyote and a squirrel.

I liked the trail. Surprised to see lots of trees coz some photos or comments said hardly any. Didn’t see many dog poop although some hikers have dogs. Saw horse poop here and there. I liked that there’s a bathroom at the tiny equestrian center. A real bathroom not a portable potty. Things I didn’t like are big potholes going up to the parking lot, very small parking lot, no trail maps, lack of post/signs in the trail and having to park on the side of the road coz the parking lot is so small.

Hmm...I only clock about 6 miles up to Henninger based on where I start I’m assuming. Not much scenery and no shade. If you want to build your tolerance of going up hill, I’d recommend this hike. Otherwise, there are other hikes that have a lot more going on (optically).

Wonderful time, nice and easy, Enjoy, ;-).

Straightforward. Check out the museum at the top and the fire lookout tower. I grew up doing this hike but it is no frills.

This hike should be labeled easy and not moderate. However, it's a nice hike for the area and a good place to do trail running. There is a small parking lot available.

Awesome Trail.. loved watching the Horses train.. it was an unexpected surprise. Lots of happy hikers on this trail. Will be back sooon!

This was a steady climb uphill. No shade. There are two restrooms (outhouse style) with no running water. There is a water fountain but it doesn't work. You can set up camp for the night or grill in the charcoal pits. If you keep going, you'll eventually get to Mt. Wilson.

I started my trail off of Fullerton Rd. You can start at Schabarum but FYI you have to pay but funds help the park. Enjoyed my hike overall as the trail was very clean, pretty wide, which makes it child and dog friendly, not overcrowded and had beautiful views of the San Gabriel Valley. My only concern was that some of the trails were not marked so there were moments that I was unsure if I was going in the direction I needed to.

Great hike! But the dirt was slippery at times and I slipped and fell!

nice little hike from Fullerton Rd to schabarum park and back would of gave it 5 stars if the bathrooms weren't locked at schabarum park! but all in all a very enjoyable hike on a beautiful day.some steep parts, but the view and the solitude make it worth the climb

I love this trail, I always go after it rains to see clear skies and be surrounded by green lush. I've never had a problem with litter on the trail but there definately is a lot of deer poop 2 miles in. Its a lovely trail that isolates you from the city and also occasionally gives you breathtaking views of the city. As you're hiking, keep an ear out for bikers and runners!
