Currently, the Bane Canyon entrance road off of Sapphire Road in Chino Hills is closed for construction of a new park entrance road. In addition, the Campground will be closed until the completion of construction.
From the Horse Staging Area, you can take trails to the:
The entrance to CHSP is a very steep and narrow, and is a one-lane, dirt and gravel road. Be aware that you can meet horseback riders, bike riders, hikers, and other vehicles coming down. A vehicle going up the hill has right of way. There are spots to pull out to let someone pass.
After stopping at the kiosk to pay for parking ($5), proceed along Bane Canyon Road. Watch for tarantulas in Fall, snakes in Spring/Summer, and Bob, our Bobcat, throughout the year! This main road leads to the Equestrian Staging Area. Be aware this is still one lane, although it becomes two lanes and paved before getting to the Staging area. The entrance to the Staging Area is a dirt and gravel, one-lane, hair-pin road to the right and up.
The Staging Area is on a small, flat hill with no trees or bushes. It has many picnic tables with four covers and one firepit. (Be aware that during fire season, no fires are allowed.) There are three water faucets, four outhouses, three trash cans, four metal hitching rails, and five pipe corrals (one large/four small). NO ELECTRICITY. Plenty of parking along with a large grass area about small arena size. There is a wooden handicap ramp, if needed.
Please clean up before you leave.
