Positioned at the top of Orange County and San Bernardino County. Carbon Canyon allows families a step back into nature without needing to travel miles to do it. I owned a home in Carbon Canyon years ago. It was like a sanctuary in the midst of all of the development. Million dollar properties surround the area. There is a private... More

About a mile back on an easy dirt road, is a lovely grove of coast redwoods planted 30 or so years ago when A local bank had promotional items leftover. They have grown into a lovely grove, well maintained by... More

The grassy park surrounding the lake was nice. Great place for a picnic, with plenty of shady trees and birds. The redwoods are cool to see but the hiking trail is short and not all that exciting. Still, it's a clean, nice park for a lazy Saturday.

I had read that there was redwoods in Orange County so went to see them here. Nice walk down a trail that is well kept and lush with plants and trees. Only about a mile in and the Redwoods are huge. Planted in the the 70s and are the only redwoods here in Southern California. I took lots of pictures... More

Love this park! The entrance fee is worth how well maintained this park is. Nice play areas, shelters and clean bathrooms! Lovely lake to wander around and a nice trail to a grove of Redwood trees! Perfect for family outings to birthday parties or casual class reunions!

We have friends that live local and took us here to see the redwoods. Such a peaceful grove. The scent of the redwoods was wonderful and the shade welcome. We were very impressed with the history of the grove and glad to see redwoods on our SoCal trip!

Very nice park, LOTS of shade trees, a nice small lake stocked with trout, many picnic tables, very quiet, lots of lawn to play soccer, catch, frisbie, whatever. I go fishing there often, a well maintained well kept up park, try it you'll enjoy it.

It's a nice and quiet place to go for a hike. The redwoods there are the reason I went. Not as big as I've heard the ones in Northern CA are, but still pretty big.

Great park for hikes - you can head out to a small redwood forest, or access Chino Hills State Park trails to the east. Also, quite a few swing sets and climbing structures for all different ages. This park also has a small lake, which sometimes has fish (depending on CA water situation). There are seasonal herons, cranes, ducks, etc.... More
