Juanita Cooke Greenbelt Trail

Starting at the lake's northeast end, crossing Santa Rosa Place road leads you to the trail, which stretches south towards Laguna Road park near Bastanchury Road, covering about a mile and a half.

Further exploration beyond Bastanchury Road presents a fork: continue straight for the trail leading to Euclid, or take the right fork to find yourself on the Hiltscher Park Trail.

These trails are predominantly flat, incorporating special ramps designed for mountain biking challenges.

The journey concludes near Downtown Fullerton, where beautiful gardens and tall palms line the path, inviting hikers to explore the city's lunch or coffee options before returning.

Bud Turner Trail

This trail offers both a low-level route near the park and a higher path that climbs before descending again, eventually paralleling a street to Valencia Mesa Drive, close to downtown.

Nora Kuttner Trail
