Grassy Hills, Tree-lined Creek, Wildlife Corridor, Hikers Only A hike along the Easy Street Trail offers some of the best trailside shade to be found within all of Chino Hills State Park. The trail, unlike nearly all others within the park, is open to hikers only, and provides not only refuge from occasional hair-raising encounters involving speeding bicyclists, but also relief from some of the smog and heat that are pervasive in this area of the park . The flora along this trail is lush and green nearly all year long, as the trail parallels a small creek that continues past its junction with the Telegraph Canyon Trail (which transverses the park from west to east). Easy Street Trail is well-signed-look for the trailhead just beyond the park entrance sign/bulletin board at the Rim Crest Drive entrance, and continue north. For a longer hike, continue either west or east along the Telegraph Canyon Trail at the trail junction, or turn and retrace your steps to the Rim Crest Drive park entrance.

I use Easy Street Trail as my return leg on all of my Chino Hills State Park hikes, because it ends (or starts, depending on what you choose to hike first) at the Rimcrest Drive free parking area. It’s my “almost done” final minutes. The South Ridge Trail is also at the parking area and you can take it east or west, which I usually do to start my hikes.

Another commenter mentioned snakes. Last year starting in February I saw nonvenomous snakes here about every 5th or 6th visit. They were usually at the south end near the parking area where the trail is flat and cuts through fields, but I saw more snakes on the longer and wider Telegraph Road which is the trail Easy Street runs into at the north end. I see more on weekdays than weekends, maybe because on weekends there are more people making noise that keep snakes hunkered down. But beware! The entire Chino Hills State Park area is also rattlesnake area, so be careful and use common sense, and remember baby rattlers do not rattle. I chatted with a park ranger in late winter last year about already seeing nonvenomous snakes out early, and he said the rattlers were already out and about too.

I found this great little trail during downtime at a water polo tournament at Yorba Linda High School. The trailhead is just 5 minutes from the high school and located in a residential neighborhood. This portion of the trail is a quick little “there and back” trail that is part of various lengthier hiking options. There is a nice bit of elevation change that was great on the legs.

Many trail options from this residential trail head spot. TAKE WATER and watch for snakes, didn't see one , but saw their belly paths across trail several times. It was warm ,but there was a breeze that was awesome and shade trees to take a breather under. Mountain bikers a plenty so keep you ears open. My Boyfriend and I enjoyed it and will go back to zig where we zagged to see what else is out there.

To call this a trail is disingenuous. It is a cross connector between two longer/larger trails. Akin to calling an interchange a freeway. Or even an on/off-ramp.

Awesome little trail. Easy to find and plenty of parking. Connects to a much larger trail if you're feeling adventurous. Great for families!
