Located in the Puente Hills, and managed by the Puente Hills Habitat Preservation Authority, Hellman Park offers trails into some of the most beautiful habitat in the area. Hike the trails on either side of the reservoir. Both trails are very aerobic up the mountainside taking you on a loop trail to the ridgeline overlooking Sycamore Canyon, a beautiful view. Along the way you will see a large collection of California brittlebush, a Sunflower family member with large yellow flowers in the spring. On a good day Catalina Island and downtown Los Angeles are observable.

So much fun took my daughters and nephews

Been there a few times. Very steep in parts. Went on coyote trail today. Nicer than the main one but steep. Love the back side of the loop - feels like a forest.

not moderate at all....HARD

Sycamore canyon trailhead up the switchback; make a left onto Skyline drive. I took the Pepper grass trail to Hellman park (downslope). Going back would be a killer but I took the Mariposa trail instead, which is not much of an elevation. Came back to the junction again, decided to try the Rattlesnake trail (a little hilly but not too bad). Return via the switchback and explore the Dark Canyon trail- a death end but lots of shades.
