Looking for a way to connect with the great outdoors? Nature lovers can explore Black Star Canyon which, after this season’s deluge of rains, is sure to be bursting with wildflowers and greened-up native plants throughout the winter and spring seasons.
Known for its rich history and breathtaking views, Black Star Canyon is an easy gateway to the backcountry of the Cleveland National Forest and the northern Santa Ana Mountains. The first residents of the land were the Gabrieleno (Tongva) people, and the area was also once home to a vibrant ranching community and mining company. Today, outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy diverse sage scrub, chaparral habitats, wildflowers, and expansive views found in Black Star Canyon.
