“The main thoroughfare from the lower to upper Santiago Oaks Region Park.”— Paul Stewart

Near the end of a straightaway, there is a covered picnic table -- a great place to take a breather. Just after the rest area is the start of the Bumble Bee Trail on your right.
A few steep switchbacks take you to the top of a ridge and the start of the Grasshopper Trail to your right. You can see most of the eastern portion of the park from this location. Stay to your left to keep on the trail.
Next, the trail winds up and around the hill to the highest point of the trail and another covered picnic table. This a great photo op. Usually you can see all of Anaheim, Catalina Island, Signal Hill, and the whole park, of course.
Continuing on the trail, you'll come to a cross road with Peralta Hills Trail on the left and Anaheim Hills Trail (up to the highest point of the park -- Robber's Roost) to your right. Continue slightly left and immediately right to go down and out of the park.
