Mountain Biking Chino Hills State Park

****   Add a review
#135 of 1,005 mountain bike trails in California
#1,962 in the world

Carbon Canyon Regional Park is located in Brea, Ca and was opened in 1975 after it was determined that the area should be preserved primarily for flood control purposes. I'm not able to confirm it, but the name probably came from the abundance of oil found in the area years ago. You can even still see a few remaining oil rigs dotting the hill sides. The mountain biking isn't in Carbon Canyon but in Chino Hills State Park that is adjacent to it, but for easy parking and access just enter through Carbon Canyon and pay the $2.00 toll M-F and a bit more on the weekend. To get to the trailhead , you head east along the Carbon Canyon Rd. until you see the signs that take you around a small gate and to the trailhead below.

Getting there
Take the 57 Fwy to Lambert Rd. Head East on Lambert Rd. until it turns into Carbon Canyon Rd. (142). The entrance to Carbon Canyon Park is on the right-hand side, (approx. 3 mi. East of the 57 Fwy). There is parking inside the park for a few bucks. Ride your bike to the east-most end of the park. At the end of the parking lot, there is a dirt trail that initially runs along Lambert until you get to a gate. Go around the gate and continue riding until you get to a second gate. You are now at a point where the trail splits 2 ways. Continuing straight would take you to Telegraph Canyon. Turning left takes you up North Ridge.
