Features Views

Family Friendly The sort of hike that can be combined with a visit to the Olinda Oil Museum. Also, a city park is at the end of the trail with a playground. The county's regional park is south of the neighborhood.

Description

Beginning at Brea's Olinda Oil Museum, the Olinda Trail zig-zags above the Olinda Ranch neighborhood, giving visitors panoramic views of Orange County. Along the way, users will pass by wells in one of California's oldest oil fields. Informative signs along the trail share history about the oil fields and the city's beginnings. The north section is a singletrack dirt tail while the southern half uses a paved utility access road.

Catalina Island can be seen in the distance as we hike down the eastside of Olinda Trail.  On the opposite ridge you can see the switchback going to the top.
