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/

Let's Hike Skyline Drive in Corona - All Levels Hike

Needs a location

Skyline Drive

Skyline Drive is a popular fire trail in the Cleveland National Forest. We will hike for about 2 hours and complete around 5 miles with breaks to take in the view. This uphill hike is a nice conditioning hike to prepare us for more strenuous events. We will meet at the trailhead at 5:45 pm and begin our hike promptly at 6:00 p.m.

RSVP: Only if you are planning to attend!

Bring plenty of water and sunscreen - there is no shade on this hike. Trail shoes or tennis shoes with very good traction are recommended.

Do not leave valuables in your parked car. Be VERY careful getting in and out of your car - the traffic is moving very fast through there!

Hiking Fresno Canyon - off Green River in Corona

Needs a location

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!
