Explore the most popular nature trips trails in Chino Hills State Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

In July the landscape is dry and brown. The temps were warm but had some shade down near river bed and a great breeze on the ridge. First 1/3 of trail is easy then you climb to the ridge and catch great views and get your cardio in. Well maintained. saw no other hikers and just a few mountain bikers. $5 state park entrance fee.

Short but challenging hike. Great hills.

As previously said...very hot... make sure you go earlier in the day. Not very good signage...was confused on where to start for the Little canyon trail bc the starting point doesn't have that listed as one of the trails. Make sure you take screen shots of map before you enter trails ...not way to access the All Trails map once you get in the canyon. Bring lots of water...very little shade. Lots of poop on the trail too : (

On a hot day like today, be aware there is very little shade. I think this hike would have been totally different on a cooler day.
Bring lots of water!!

This trail is closed. Don’t know why this is not showing on the AllTrails app.

Pretty good hike that can take 1-2 hours to finish. Definitely want to go in spring when the hills are green. Everything is dead during the summer.

it was a nice sunset hike!

Great little hike! Lots of bikes on this trail!

Great hike! Nice views and a good workout. Lots of birds and small wildlife on the trail.

Everything’s been pretty dead this year since there hasn’t been much rain. It’s a nice easy walk but not much scenery

There was no activity that said dying or I would have put that. This hike killed me and my friend i went with. We went on a whim because my friend has been going through some stuff in life and has kind of given up on pushing themselves and seeing positive change. So we randomly did this hike today and let me tell you I thought we were going to die. it was amazing tho,nice scenery and the sense of accomplishment that came from it was incredible. We will be back for sure. It was the perfect challenge and the life metaphors drawn from the hike kept us entertained the whole time when we weren't telling each other we should turn back. Amazing hike tho 10/10 would reccomend.

lots of different trails. Beautiful views.

Just hiked this trai, with a 20 lb pack. l. FIRST - The directions are wrong. The easiest way to say it is go to the golf course and park, or park out on the road before golf course and walk the 1/2 mile. Then, walk behind parking lot ad see the trail down below, across railroad tracks, that's your trailhead.

It's 2 miles mostly winding UP to the intersection of Brush Canyon Trail (to the right) and Scully Ridge to the left...stay left. maybe a 2 1/2 mile stretch on the ridge, up and down rolling hills before the trail hooks around and heads into the canyon on, Lower Alisio. You stay on this, another 2.5'ish miles when if you're not careful, you will miss the right turn UP to Brush Canyon Trail, which is a few windy switchbacks, back UP to Scully Ridge and the trail back to the golf course.

If I didn't have the pack it's good for trail running, although the straight ups most likely to be hiked....

Very nice today. Since last week, someone cleaned up animal waste on South Ridge, Telegraph Canyon, and even the large fresh horse dump on hiker-only Easy Street. There usually isn’t much waste anyway on these main trails, but I appreciate the maintenance (I see them occasionally grooming the bigger trails) or whoever did it.

Beautiful area, nice clean trails. Was looking to do less elevation so this was perfect for me. Most of the hike is a beautiful walk, except Easy Street which is the only part not easy. App did take me to Rimcrest Dr so it must have been updated.

Easy out and back along South Ridge Trail, or on the return take Diemer Trail north to Telegraph Canyon then East Street Trail back to Rim Crest Drive. South Ridge Trail west of Diemer Trail is not groomed often, if at all, so expect a healthy assortment of animal waste and red ants.

Fun but I would do for a while. The brush was over 6 feet tall and had to mash through cause was already committed and a lot of bees. Beautiful scenery though.

Nice 6 mile loop with a great view of the main sections of the park. Well maintained. Make sure to go left down the switch backs if you went up skully first to stay on this loop. Skully ridge continues on if you go right.

Nice and challenging trail. Took me about 2 hours. Not much shade. Saw lots of bunnies and lizards. Birds were singing. Shortly after the pay area, there's a bathroom. Maybe a water fountain. I'd revisit after it rains. So much brown and not enough green.

Fantastico!

no wild flowers to report I guess we haven't had enough rain the hills are fairly green though so that's nice ,trails are easy to walk, not much else here

Rattlesnake in the grass on easy street. Narrow trail gets you close to their territory. Nice views. Pretty intense climb for “easy trail”. Enjoyed it.

This trail is beautiful to hike during the wildflower season. Since we haven't had a lot of rains, the trail itself is dry, without much color. It's a decent hike and there are nice vistas at some of the high points. No shade at all, so go early or on days that won't get as hot.

I began this trail at Rimcrest drive. This is a residential area where street parking is available. When I used this app for directions it did not take me to an accessible area. The app took me to Diemer road to begin the hike. Diemer road ends with a private road that is gated off and you cannot access the trail here. If you begin this trail at Rimcrest Drive the trail begins with a fork in three directions. Left is the Telegraph Road Trail, straight ahead is the Easy Street Trail and to the right is the South Ridge Trail. Be warned that to the the South Ridge Trail is a much longer Trail and without a map, could be very easy to get lost because there are many other trails that stem from it. I began by starting at Telegraph road (big steep hill to the left). The beginning of the trail offers a few pretty lookouts, we could see Catalina from the top. This trail will eventually fork in two directions. If you want to loop back to the beginning, stay to the right. The trail to the left will require you to back track. Taking the trail to the right began with a downward sloping trail. This part of the trail had some water damage, and gravel was loose, so watch your footing. The trail will eventually fork again. To stay on the loop and get back to beginning stay to the right. The trail to the left will take you back towards Carbon canyon. This portion of the loop was pretty easy, ran into many bikers here. The Easy Street Trail stems off to the right randomly, looks kind of sketchy and would be really easy to miss if you are not paying attention and don’t have a map. Easy Street is very narrow, and at the beginning winds through a bunch of trees (which is nice because it’s the rare shaded area of this hike). The trail ends up having a drop off at your left. This portion is short and will take you back to Rimcrest where you began. This was a good loop and I will definitely do it again. *trail heads are not well marked, so bring a map **there is very little shade cover, so on a hot day wear a hat and bring plenty of water ***watch out for snakes and coyotes

I use this loop for trail running. It has some good challenging hills combined with nice views of the hills. Sidewinder is a great single track trail! The whole loop has very little asphalt. Take the N. Bane Ridge trail to the right about 1/2 mile up from the CHSP gate. It's just before the reservoir. At the Sidewinder trail junction try looping to the left or right. Either way will loop back around to the junction and then back down to Bane Canyon to the gate.

Nice trail, can’t wait to do this one in a few months after it rains so the hills are more green.
