GOT-OC Hiking at Santiago Oaks

  • Oct 7, 2012 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hike time has been moved to 8:30 AM.

Lying peacefully in east Orange alongside the Santiago Creek, the 1,758-acre Santiago Oaks Regional park is a nature lover's paradise. This secluded refuge offers hikers, bikers and equestrians the natural charm of mountain vistas, an orange grove, a meandering creek and a mature forest of many different species of trees. Wildlife abounds and a series of interconnecting trails leads through shady groves and to a lookout that features an awe-inspiring view of Orange and the surrounding foothills.

We will be doing between 5 and 5.5 miles of the various trails with some hill work this time out. With the recent heat we will keep this a fairly easy course, with a few short stretches that will give us a little bit of work. We will be going thru a lot of different areas, including parts of the developed nature trail and under the canopy of the oak trees in the area.

The park entrance is at the end of Widnes Drive. Once you enter the park follow the parking lot to the end and you will find the group. Parking is $5 at the park.

Please drive slowly on the access road to the park, there are many horses that share this road.

As always, bring the water and sun protection.

Hope to see you all join me as we explore another new hiking area for the group.
