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.Show more
