What we're about

Lazy Ass Hiking is a hiking and outdoor group based in the Inland Empire area of Southern California. Although we do many slower paced hikes, walks, and bike rides in or near the Inland Empire area, we often feature longer, more challenging, and more distant hikes and rides throughout the SoCal area. Everything from a walk in the park to climbing Mt. Whitney is fair game at Lazy Ass.

Please note that the Lazy Ass name is not a reference to being out of shape, but rather a preference for taking it a bit slower. We actually don't mind a little huffing and puffing on the trails and bike paths, or even a little boulder hopping and scrambling, but we're definitely not in a race and we don't particularly like to start hikes at the crack of dawn.

We have fun and welcome you to join our group with the understanding that hiking, biking, and other outdoor activities are inherently dangerous and potentially even deadly. By joining the group or participating in any Lazy Ass Hiking event, you agree to hold the organizers, event hosts and members harmless from any loss, damage, or liability that may occur during the event or while in transit to and from the event.

Lazy Ass Hiking gear is now availably on our Shopify page here: https://lazy-ass-hiking.myshopify.com/

Hike Scenic Chapman Trail to Cedar Glen Campground. Start at Ice House Canyon

Level: Intermediate-Advanced--- THIS IS NOT A HIKE FOR A TOTAL BEGINNER WHO HAS NOT EXERCISED IN THE PAST COUPLE OF MONTHS OR WHO HAS TROUBLE WITH HIGH ELEVATION, UNEVEN TERRAIN. PLEASE KNOW YOUR LIMITS. Please be able to hike the first 2 1/2 miles climbing 1400 feet in one hour or less with no breaks until we reach the campground. We descend at 7:15PM to reach the parking lot before dark at 8PM. Members on this hike are advanced, experience, fit and dedicated that are training for Peaks over 10000 feet in elevation. We will meet at the trail head at 5:45 pm and start hiking promptly at 6 pm following a 15 minute social. We are a friendly group hiking together over five years so it is good to catch up with members. This hike is about 5 miles round trip with about a 1400 ft gain. Maintain six foot social distance. Masks are welcomed. Don't hike sick please. This is a permit hike with 12 hikers to a permit. If we have over 12 we will start Group 1 at 5:55 and Group 2 at 6:00. We will cap it at 24 hikers and create a waiting list. Starting order is based on order signed up. This conditioning hike will run every Wednesday during Daylight Savings time and will go dark during standard time. The hike starts on the Icehouse Canyon trail at 5000 ft. The lower trail climbs above a bubbling stream that flows over boulders and passes old cabins and cabin ruins. We will hike mostly in shade under a canopy of fir, pine, and cedar trees on the lower trail until we reach the one mile marker. Here, instead of going straight on the Icehouse Canyon trail we will turn left and take the Chapman trail about another 1.5 miles to the Cedar Glen Campground. This is the trail less traveled and we will again hike single track up to the campground. The Cedar Glen trail camp sits secluded in a bowl-shaped bench under Cedar, Pine and Fir. Numerous streams run across the trail. We will stop here to have a snack and explore the area before heading back out the way we came. Though most of the trail is well-maintained, there are some rocky, uneven portions where those who are not sure on their feet may have trouble. WHAT TO BRING: Bring a headlamp or flashlight as darkness may set near the end of the hike. At least 1 1/2 to 2 liters of water, snacks, sunhat, sunscreen, dress in layers and wear good trail shoes with tread or hiking boots. We start at 5000 feet and ascend to 6400 foot so it can get a bit chilly. DIRECTIONS: From the East, take the 210 West and get off at Mountain Ave in Upland. Go north (right) on Mountain through San Antonio Heights until you reach Mt. Baldy Road. Go right on Mt. Baldy Rd. and take it all the way through the town of Mt. Baldy and turn right on Icehouse Canyon Road. Do not turn left at the junction toward the ski lifts! Immediately there will be a large parking lot on the left. Park here, then walk up to the solo picnic table near the port-o-pottys. We will meet here. From the West, take the 210 East and get off at Baseline Ave. Go west (left) on Baseline and turn right at Padua, which should be the next street. Go straight up Padua and turn right on Mt. Baldy Road. The directions are now the same as coming from the East. No Plus 1's. Each hiker must sign up on their own and agree to waiver. A valid adventure pass must be displayed in your windshield to park in the parking lot. It can be purchased an most sporting goods stores, ranger stations or at REI.

Hiking Fresno Canyon - off Green River in Corona

Green River Promenade

Fresno Canyon Trail After learning that Fresno Canyon is actually City of Corona property, we did some exploring. It is a well-kept trail that leads from Green River up to the Cleveland National Forest. We worked with the City to get this officially designated as a trail and replaced the Private Property/No Trespassing signs with legit trail head signage! The hike is a more strenuous than the fire road at Skyline, but not too bad. If you go far enough up the trail (a few miles) it gets very steep and challenging. For our Monday conditioning hike we will hike for an hour, take a 10 minute break, and then return the way we came. Because it is steeper the distance will not be too great, but it will still be a nice workout. Due to the earlier sunsets it would be a good idea to bring a headlamp or flashlight. WHAT TO BRING: • Shoes with good traction • Water • Sunscreen • Light snack • Trekking Poles (if you use them) • FLASHLIGHT and/or HEADLAMP! AFTER THE HIKE: There is a little pizza place called Big Al's where we park, so after the hike we will grab a slice before heading home. This bit is optional, but it is always fun!
