Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park Reviews & Ratings
Love this place, I have been mountain biking here since the early 90’s. Nice place for a quick and easy 45 minute bike ride. You can add a few side loops to make it a little longer. If you're in shape you can add “the luge” to make it a half day ride. And if you’re in really good shape and have time to ride all day, add in the "old camp" loop. Ride safe keep the trails open!
Great place to get back to nature while still so close to the city. Hiking and biking galore...no pets or horses though, but great for just a mild walk...or trails for the more avid hiker! Spend a day or just a few hours. $3 parking...small lot.
This is a great place to enjoy the Southern California terrain, which is somewhat dry, sandy, rocky, and lots of cactus... expecting a rainforest would be a big mistake! :) --- This is a great place for hiking, it is hilly, and can be a little steep in some areas. Mountain Biking is good here, although it is not for the beginner Mountain Biker, as the climbs, particularly Mustard road, can be ferocious for a beginner. It's great for Intermediate, at least, and has about 4-6 mile loop depending on which trail you take. Visit their website, as you can get a lot of important safety and interesting information.... there is lots of wildlife here, and it's true that there are mountain lion, while the risks of attack are extremely small, there has been attack and death here a few years ago. It's probably not a good idea to bring little kids, or to go alone. Otherwise, it's a great place to enjoy nature, and get away from city life!!!!
Great beginner mountain bike track. Friendly people on the trail. Stay polite and keep it clean. Pay the 3$ for parking and avoid being towed at Ralph's.
I went to this park two years ago with my family including my 3 years old daughter. It's shaded and easy on us. We did not finish the whole route because of my little princess 😍 but we loved it very much. I'd love to go there again but I have another 2 years old now, Lol...maybe wait a few more years. I recommend friends and families go visit this park, you won't regret it. Have fun!:)
