Hiking Oak Canyon Nature Center, 1

Kat told me about this great hiking spot she and her boyfriend “discovered”, less than 6 miles from home, so naturally I had to check it out. (It’s fun moving to a new area and learning about all it has to offer!) Oak Canyon Nature Center, located in Anaheim Hills, just a few miles from Orange, is surrounded by beige tract homes on all the hilltops. While walking on the cliff side trails, the houses are barely noticeable, though, and once alongside the oak-covered streambed, they’re not to be seen at all. I spent several wonderful hours exploring all the trails, and even passed a wedding taking place under the trees. What a great setting, if you don’t mind strangers walking by as you say your “I do’s”! The photos in this gallery, part 1, were taken as I walked along the upper trails. ~SueBee

Per their website: “Oak Canyon Nature Center is a 58-acre natural park nestled in the Anaheim Hills.  A year-round stream meanders through the park.  Consisting of three adjoining canyons, four miles of hiking trails traverse one of the few remaining areas of oak woodland and coastal sage scrub in our region.  Native wildlife makes the canyon their home and is just waiting to be discovered.  Also located on site is the John J. Collier Interpretive Center, a small museum with live animal and regional natural history exhibits. The Nature Center is ideal for those who are just stepping into the wilderness for the first time or for those more experienced trekkers who are seeking a short hike.”

    It looks (or you have made it look) delightful.

    I particularly like the footpath image, making full use of the dappled sunlight

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
