Friends of Coyote Hills Evening Nature Hike

Friends of Coyote Hills Evening Nature Hike led by naturalists takes place from 6pm to 8pm on Sunday, August 11. Meet at the Equestrian Center at Laguna Lake on Lakeview Drive, Fullerton 92835. Visit www.coyotehills.org for more details.

It’s a moderately easy 2 to 2 1/2 mile hike (with some uphill climbing) suitable for the entire family.  It is a wonderful time to enjoy a walk in the West Coyote Hills – breathe in fresh air, soak up the sunshine and be out-of-doors.  Doggies are welcome as long as they are on a leash.

We meet at the open-gate entrance to the Equestrian Center of Laguna Lake Park, on Lakeview just east of Euclid in Fullerton. Wear comfortable shoes and bring water to drink. Please note that during the hot summer months, the walks start at 6pm.

Summer provides Coyote Hills with a profusion of color; carmine monkey flowers and black sage crowd the slopes with spots of red and violet, along with coastal prickly pear, orange deer plant, and purple Fern-leaved phaecelia.

As spring wanes and summer comes around one hears the songs and calls of a multitude of nesting birds like the Bewick’s Wrens, song sparrows, orange-crowned warblers, and goldfinches. The rare California gnatcatchers call out in the early mornings, while at dusk brush rabbits come out to forage and the coyotes sing in celebration of the new season.
