Trail is nice and clear. Lots of UP and down rocky terrain. No shade, go early morning and bring lots of water!

Great short after work hike. Takes really no time but it is very scenic and has enough elevation gain to work up a bit of a sweat. Frequented heavily by mountain bikers so be on the look out when you are with dogs and small children. Also plenty of trail runners but they’re not a problem. I will say that the signage was a bit confusing because though all the trail is accessible and there are loads of people on it, there are numerous signs saying no trespassing and private property. My guess is that it has something to do with Irvine Park and you are kind of taking the freebie way in. Regardless it seems like you are not going to be stopped because you can point to everyone else on the trail.

Don’t be fooled by elementary school gate. Nice views and fun to do.

Roadrunner is a bit overgrown especially east of the shaded shelter, but not difficult.

Easy shaded trails.

The last two hikes here were fantastic, with the overcast June mornings keeping it cool and the park having many connecting trails to easily add mileage and elevation gain. But most trails are single track so watch for mountain bikers who zip around curves without warning. The real pros (my opinion only, but much appreciated) are ones considerate of safety by mounting bells and letting you know how many are following.

I created my own 7.6 mile loop out of these trails. Not overgrown at all compared to Yorba Linda’s hills. The Anaheim Hills Walking Trail part of this loop is actually closed and gated. The sign says it is a “nature preserve” and it is labeled ”Windy Ridge Rd”, not “Anaheim Hills Walking Trail” as mapped by All Trails. I also took the Yucca Ridge Trail from the Anaheim Hills Trail to get to Robbers Roost. The amount of wildlife on these trails, compared to Yorba Linda’s trails, is very strange. I saw one lizard on this trail in two hikes and one Roadrunner (very odd and lucky I guess). In Yorba Linda’s hills, I commonly see lizards every 10 yards. Tarantulas almost every hike and at least one snake (rattlesnakes, Cal King, gopher snakes) every couple of hikes. Not to mention the occasional Coyote and deer. Probably more mountain bikers on AH trails but WOW, a huge difference.

Lots of easy options to extend this hike.

Created my own 6.5 mile loop. Excellent trail conditions compared to Yorba Linda trails right now. But my gosh, where are the lizards. I saw ZERO but I did see a Roadrunner, which I thought was pretty unusual.

this trail is heavily used by mtn bike. narrow, and hidden corners and steep incline. = fast bikes, no warning. NOT good for dogs, no where to step off when bikes come racing down.

The trails here are not overgrown like Chino Hills State Park. Relaxing hike.

Awesome this morning! The sun was out earlier because no overcast and several rattlesnakes were buzzing in the brush along most trail segments. There was even a duet in stereo. But it’s good none was actually on a trail, the closest and only visible one maybe 15 feet away.

This one was a bit disappointing. Lots of trails to choose from in the area but we followed the one laid out and we were not impressed. Overgrown bushes that constantly smacked us in the face, narrow trails, very rocky and uncomfortable at times.
