NOT an off roading trail at all? I don't know why it's listed as an off raod trail it's a damn dog park?

This was somewhat confusing. First we did the East Canyon Loop trail. it's only 1.2 miles with no elevation rise. so then we went up the West Canyon Loop and it gets to the top and directs you 1 mile to parking lot, 2 miles back to here. we just doubled back after another half mile. I think you want to do the trail on All Trails- when you get to the fork- take the West Canyon Loop trail. In the fall wear pants, overgrown brush with stickers. Beautiful views though, will definitely be back.

I had a lot of fun on this hike. There’s an established trail that runs parallel to the Santa Ana, but hiking the river’s a lot more fun. The terrain switches up on you, going from soft beach-like sands to smooth pebbles and stones. Cacti and various desert plants can be seen throughout, as well as your common lizards and birds.

Once the trail heads north, you’re greeted by what I believe is a creek or a basin of some sort. Either way, the actively flowing water was a surprise to me. It was cool and clear and populated by a small group of ducks.

I actually took the trail up to Aurantia Park in Highland and attempted to loop back down to my car, but ran into excavation zones, overgrown brush, and misleading trails. I suggest heading out to the creek and back, or if you’re feeling adventurous out to Aurantia Park and back. The Santa Ana Wash incorporates more than this specific path, so you can improvise your way around the arroyo. Just be safe.

I parked alongside Riverview Dr. where Church St. ends and the trailhead begins.

I was looking for hiking trails in Redlands and both Teddy's Trail and Oak Ridge Trail looked interesting, but unfulfilling on their own. I decided to connect the two, and it turns out they make a fine pair. The trail takes you down into the spacious floor of the canyon before climbing up the side of an occasionally overgrown ridge and up to a utility station. The path then takes you out to Oak Ridge Trail, which switchbacks along the face of the canyon, providing a solid workout alongside beautiful views of the surrounding terrain. The trail ends in Oakmont Park where you can rest under the shade of large trees.

You can do this trail as an out and back, or return using a shortcut through side streets. More adventurous hikers could take the Oakmont Trail Loop back to Teddy's Trail through a bit of wayfinding, which shouldn't be too difficult. There's a lot to explore out there, but it can get hot and overgrown so be prepared.

Easy hike. Great for kids. Paved. Lots to look at and explore.

Easy hike. Very nice in the spring time. Great for kids. Lots to explore. Very short.

This is a short, enjoyable trail that loops around a park encased in an affluent neighborhood. I've walked it twice, and both times there was ample parking. Parts of the trail are shadeless, which can be uncomfortable in the summer sun, but sections do snake through covered areas and hideaways. The foliage is decent during the summer, but I can imagine it being impressive in the spring. There's also a large green field near the entrance of the park, which is a good place to chill whether you hiked or not.

I don't think this should be rated as a moderate hike. I'm not an experienced hiker by any means, but this was easy. More of a pleasant afternoon stroll than anything.

A lot of overgrowth the last 2 or so miles of the trail, bushes are like razors, cut me up pretty good. maybe wear leggings until somebody can get in there and clear some of them out.

Regular trail wasn't long enough for me so used the map and tried to take some other trails, went into some deep canyon areas doing a lot of back tracking and getting cut off by private property meanwhile shredding my legs with razor bushes, definitely wearing leggings next time and possibly a machete to clear bushes.

The park is okay. I could see how it would be pretty during the spring when everything is green and flowers are blooming. During summer it's all brown. Biggest downfall is that the trail is super short. I looped the outer rim of the park 3 times in about 25-30 mins, but it gets boring. The trail is not moderate either. It's fairly easy!
