Peter F Schabarum Regional Park

17250 Colima Rd, Rowland Heights, CA 91748, Rowland Heights, California

Admin: Jennifer Arnautu

A hidden gem nestled in the midst of busy So Cal, just off the 60 freeway, between the 605 and 57. The park has two locations where you are able to park a rig; the main entrance off Colima Road (Schabarum Regional Park entrance) or a back entrance off of Fullerton Rd (Powder Canyon). There are miles of hilly trails that offer beautiful overlooks of the San Fernando Mountains. The park is not too busy with hikers, and few bikers. Dogs must be on leashes. There is a 40 horse equestrian center for private boarding, as well as a 5 horse rental string that does guided trail rides. The main backbone trail connects from Whittier Narrows all the way to Bonelli Park in San Dimas (if you know how to get around it), a roughly 30 mile stretch of trail. The park itself has so may options, you can ride for 6+ hours and not ride the same trails. Well maintained trail system with good footing. Some rocky areas, but mostly hard packed dirt. If you would like a trail guide from someone who boards at the equestrian center within Schabarum Park, please contact Kiche's Adventures on Facebook. We would be glad to share our trails with you and show you around!

PEAK RIDING SEASON / WEATHER

Honestly, year round. So Cal weather being what it is, there's no major concern. It does get very chilly in the valleys during the winter season and can be HOT HOT HOT in the summer. Nice and shady
