- Chino Hills State Park
Chino Hills State Park lies 27 miles from Anaheim and 37 miles from downtown Los Angeles, but it feels like you've entered another world. Green, rolling hills extend as far as the eyes can see; in the spring, the wildflower bloom sets the hillsides ablaze with neon-orange poppies and purple phacelias. Here, you can hike, bike, or ride on horseback for miles through canyons, over high ridges, and across sprawling meadows.
Thanks to its location in the foothills of the Santa Ana Mountains, Chino Hills State Park offers moderate temperatures year-round. Summer days are often hot, but if you're planning to camp nearby, bring layers for the cool mornings and evenings.
