A unique feature of the trail is that every time that I got tired or needed to catch my breath there was a convenient hilltop bench. They seemed to be perfectly spaced apart when I needed to relax. And the cool breeze and awesome views did not hurt either. You can see all of Diamond Bar, Chino Hills, and even downtown Los Angeles on a clear day.
Starting from The Steep Canyon trailhead you have the option to hike into different residential areas or into Summit Ridge Park. The trail is well maintained and many signs along the way direct you to areas where you can go and other areas that you can’t.
Make sure to bring plenty of water and a light jacket just in case. For more information visit the Diamond Bar website.
