Between the title, and the sign in the picture... that pretty much covers it.
This is a really nice walk with some interesting things to see along the way. There are a lot of stories associated with this place too, from paranormal to hostile locals, and the school bus in the ravine, etc... This is also the way to Black Star Falls, the Indian Grinding Stones, and Beek's Place beyond that. We will be turning around at the bottom of the incline where you either go down to go to the falls (into the creek, there is no trail the last 1.5 miles), or up the hill to the grinding stones and Beek's Place... I'm just guessing at the distance, but it's close...
There are no restrooms here.
DO NOT have valuables visible in your parked vehicles here. That is good practice at any hiking trail parking area. Put all valuables where they will be before you get to the parking area (don't be seen putting things into your trunk/inside console kind of thing).
Parking shouldn't be a problem, but I do not know for sure...?????
And I think that's it... Any questions, please ask...
We will be doing a couple of loops through portions of the Talbert Nature Preserve. The trails are wide hard packed dirt through mostly natural native vegetation. The walk will be in the sun the entire time, there is no shade on the trails.
This hike is more of a walk and will be fairly flat --- I usually wear tennis shoes as opposed to hiking shoes, but to each their own. Part of it is on pavement and it includes a flight of stairs.
*** The entrance to the park is at the stop light very close to the pedestrian bridge going over Placentia Ave. ***
Dogs Are Allowed.
There is a lot of free parking here. Once you enter the parking area, drive to the end of the parking lot. On the right you will see 4 covered picnic tables in front of the restrooms (which are usually/hopefully open)... We'll meet there... And I guess that's it for now...
