PARKING: There is plenty of parking during the week (on weekends it fills up fast and you will have to find parking in surrounding neighborhood).
HIKE WALKTHROUGH: This trail is a hidden gem located in a beautiful neighborhood of Fullerton. There is plenty of beauty to see that will make you want to come back for more! It includes a man made lake filled with trout fishes, habitat of different type of ducks, geese, birds, squirrels, flowers, trees and even a home of equestrian ranch with local neighborhood horses that will ride on by. We will start off from the parking lot and go approx 3 quarters of a mile down the Bud Turner trail that runs alongside of the neighborhood back yards, then quickly leads into a single track dirt trail towards Laguna Rd. It is here where we loop around the trail which will widen up with pretty views of a white picket fence leading towards the equestrian ranch and walking back towards parking lot crossing the street continuing on the Bud Turner Trail which has views of the beautiful Laguna Lake. We will continue walking to the end of the lake and connect to the Juanita Cook trail to the right. Depending on how group is doing, we will decide on which trail to take next to continue on. After crossing a neighborhood street, most likely, we will continue down to the right and will take you down a trail that takes you into an enchanted looking forest of shaded trees and the neighborhood backyards. This whole trail is very popular among mountain bikers so we have to stay aware of our surroundings at all times. We will decide at time of hike which trail to continue on depending on what’s going on at that time and keeping mind full of time and miles hiking. We will loop around and turnback going back the same way out. For the most part, the trails we will be doing are relatively flat with a few inclines. The weather conditions and depending on fellow hikers are doing, we will make the decision in best interest of an enjoyable hike for everyone!
