Trail Overview

The trail, which is 1.6 miles (round-trip) in length, starts in the undeveloped portion of the park south of the lower parking lot. The trail travels above the creek and is shaded a portion of the way by Sycamore and Oak Trees. Slopes with grades of up to 10% take the trail into a Walnut Woodlands riparian habitat, where Oak, Walnut, and Sycamore Trees have been planted to create a home for wildlife. The trail of a grade of up to 22% continues to a staircase leading to access at the trail head adjacent to Diamond Bar Boulevard. The trail also includes a par course ten exercise stations located on the mesa overlooking the canyon.

  • Steep slopes with grades of up to 22%, can be slippery to walk on

Trail Safety Tips

  • Use of trails is at your own risk. There is little or no shade and no water along most portions of the trails.
  • Use caution when using the trails as they are undeveloped and uneven due to loose rocks and erosion. The trails may be slippery due to loose soil, vegetation, and dampness.
  • Open space areas are home to area wildlife including coyotes and rattlesnakes.
  • Be alert and keep small children and pets under supervision.
  • There are no restrooms, drinking facilities, or telephones within open space or along the trails.
  • In order to maintain native vegetation and control erosion, please do not leave the existing trails.
