Description
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.
