  1. Hi, have you hiked Peters Canyon Regional Park? It's minutes away from Irvine Regional Park. I was there this past weekend and was surprised how much I enjoyed it. It's a little gem tucked away in the middle of Orange County. There's a man made reservoir, a nature trail, lots to enjoy. It was a little dry being that it's summer, so I plan to return in the spring when it's greener.

  5. My wife and I are moving to Temecula this week. I hope sometime you guys will add that area to your repertoire, as I've heard there are some great hikes there, and would love to see your take on them. I see you've already bagged Palomar, and I look forward to hitting that one with my friends soon. Best, Erin

  6. Hi was wondering if you no if the gate to saddleback mountain is open to drive up to summit or if you no of a # that i can call.
    thank you.

  7. I don't know if the gate is open, as there a couple of gates/options to gain vehicle access to the top of Saddleback, but there is a number on the Cleveland National Forest Website that would probably be your best bet. There is a link below to their website under our "Website and Blogs" section on the right hand side of our website.

  8. I'm a big fan of your hiking site. Very useful information for my hikes! Have you ever been to Chantry Flats? Take the 210 freeway (East of Pasadena) and exit Santa Anita Ave and head north. Just go to the end of the road and try to park at the top. If not, you have to find parking and the street and hike up. There are different trails you can take. Sturvetant Falls is about 6 miles round trip and Hermit Falls is around 4. Hermit is my favorite because there are water pools you can jump into, natural water slides, and cliffs you can jump off. Its in the Angeles Natural Forest so make sure you buy an Adventure Pass for your car. Keep up the good work.

  10. Thanks sooo much for your website! I'm visiting the area and this is a superb resource. Is there a feature on abhiking.com for hikes that would be appropriate for female solo hikers? Or could you make recommendations? Thanks again.

  11. Hi, I wasn't sure where to post this question. I'm training to hike across the Grand Canyon early next year. I need a pair of comfortable water proof hiking shoes. Can you recommend a good brand? Thanks.

  12. As far as comfortable waterproof breathable hiking shoes you cannot go wrong with either Merrell's or Columbia's. Ashley and I have both and use both. We use our Columbia's more than the Merrells. Good luck on your Grand Canyon Hike!

  13. Just happened upon your blog and it is MORE THAN PERFECT for what I have been looking to find in OC. We are fairly new here and have two young daughters. Your details are extremely helpful about how and where to get started. I am incredibly excited and grateful to you for putting this together. Thank you!

  15. Have you hiked Bommer Canyon? That is also an easy, low elevation, family friendly hike...

    Any tips on hike training?

    1. John,

      Bommer Canyon is on our to do list and thanks for the suggestion. The best tip we have on hiking training is being persistent and getting out on the trail!

  17. Hi Brian and Ashley, my husband and I met you on the Ortega trail today. Great hike! Want to go back when it is cooler and maybe not with our dog. We didn't go to Sitton Peak with him. He is an older doga and was too tired. So glad to meet you both. Love your site. Great information!

  18. Hi Guys,

    I am wondering what handheld GPS are you using to during your hikes. I am in the market for one so I figured I ask what you recommend.

    Thanks.

I'm just compiling the best oc blogs into a single feed. I also added you guys to my list of links on my website at http://southcaladventures.blogspot.com/

  22. Thanks for this wonderful hiking site! It has been so helpful to me as I am new to hiking. I have a question. I was looking at your post on Riley Wilderness Park and you said you saw a lot of wildlife. I was wondering what time of day you did the hike? I usually prefer early morning but was wondering if there is a better time of day to view wildlife. Thanks so much!
