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....

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 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.

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

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.

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

Pretty good hike to get back into hiking. Wasn’t too bad in the inclines either. You can always add on nearby trails to make your hike longer/increase difficulty. Got a nice workout and I got to discover some of what chino hills state park has to offer.

Lots of bikers on this trail though...

Great loop for a trail run. Has some challenging hills and a nice stretch along the ridge. Good views of the hills!

This loop ended up being 8.2 miles. Elevation was 1000 feet. Lots of ups and downs. Beautiful single tracks. Really enjoyed hiking Bane. Highly recommended

Really great trail. Clean bathrooms at the halfway point. Amazing yellow coyote squash just growing in the wild! Rolling hills and new growth of grass makes this place that much more special.

Overall it was a nice place to walk in nature with my dog. I was a bit sad to not have seen more colors in the plants ( it was mostly dead), but it was still pretty. It's unfortunate that you have to pay for parking ($5) but the price is not bad.

Pretty and Safe.

Great hike! Wide trails and some good inclines. Great for kids of all ages. I️ carried our 30lb daughter in our Osprey Poco Pack and was able to manage. There are horses on some trails which make for a real treat!

Great hike with some challenging hills!

Santa Ana river trail towards Lower Aliso Canyon trail in fairly state. Sully Hill Trail seems not able to access from this point 33°53'23.0"N 117°40'46.0"W. I was turn back to Lower Aliso Canyon due Trail interruptions. Weeds all over from the beginning.

Great trail. Very dry though. We went into the canyon. Would do it again.

Started this hike at 11am on a cloudy, 70 degree day and finished at 330pm. The path is very wide and consisted of soft dirt and loose gravel. Scully Ridge would probably be great for trail runners. There is little to no shade so make sure plan accordingly. There is not too much in terms of wildlife but I was able to see quite a few birds, fire ants, and two tarantulas. The inclines and declines on this trail were fairly gradual so you probably won't need trekking poles. I did get a fair amount of loose gravel in my shoe so bring gaiters if you have them. While this hike wasn't as scenic as some of the other ones in so cal, it was very quiet once you get into the hills and I only ran into a handful of folks. I definitely enjoyed the solitude on this trail. I would go again on a cool and cloudy day. Also, there are signs at the golf course stating that the parking is for customers only and your car may be towed. There is parking right outside the entrance of the golf course which adds about half a mile to the hike.

this trail requires entrance to Chino Hills state park ($5 fee) and in about 4 miles. We parked at the campground by the barn and took the Aliso upper trail. This trail started out nice, but became very narrow and overgrown. There is zero shade after you cross the stream. Definitely would take the Lower Aliso trail and Raptor trails in the future.

Finding this hike is a little difficult. Once your on Greenriver Rd. turn right where the golf course sign is. I drove into the golf course parking lot, parked in the back and crossed the train tracks to get to the trail head. It's actually the end of the trail, but it's a loop so it doesn't matter.

Gorgeous hike despite the overgrown dried shrubs that blocked us from making the loop to Sidewinder Trail.

Many trails are overgrown due to lack of maintenance, short staffed. Bring lots of water and snacks and don't panic when you reach a dead end due to overgrown trails you can't get through. Grab a map too so you can call the ranger if you get in trouble.

The trail has multiple trailheads at the start, middle, and end; asking a ranger is easiest for finding the best one for you. The trail was fairly overgrown at parts after all the rain, but it made for some dramatic clearings. Wall to wall black mustard with a bit of milk thistle mixed in, very pretty right now with everything in full bloom. Best of all, we hardly saw a soul in 3 hours of hiking, on a Saturday even. Trail forms a loop by using the Aliso Canyon and Sidewinder trails.

Wow, just wow so beautiful! After a lot of rain this year, so many flowers are in bloom. It's like a golden dream. Highly recommend going right now. It can get pretty grassy and flowery at points, so wear pants and a long sleeve, unless you want flower dust all over you. I even saw tarantula so watch out for critters!

I would update the profile picture b/c this park is vibrantly green after all the winter rain this year! Beautiful rolling hills and spring wildflowers. I recommend checking out this trail but wear long pants and bring a long sleeved shirt b/c the flowers are super tall.

I rushed over here to see the wildflowers and green hills from the rain before they were gone, and I'm glad I did! I have mixed feelings about the trail itself; half of the loop follows a paved road so I had to keep an eye out for motor vehicles, it was fairly busy on a Saturday morning, and there was virtually no shade. But there were several patches of beautiful flowers and also a few spots high up with a great view that made it worth it! I would recommend this trail while it's still green. Bring a hat, water, sunscreen, and maybe even long pants as protection while wading through narrow trails with tall grasses.
