A great place to let your dog run off leash, this suburban trail behind the McMansions of Anaheim Hills offers some nice panoramic views over Weir Canyon. On our visit in June 2012, we spotted deer prancing along the Weir Canyon Trail. Be careful, though, because we also stepped over a snake sunbathing on the dirt. Britta and Friday’s dog-friendly assessment: four paws up.
Setting the alarm for 7:00 AM on a Sunday morning is not a task I look forward to. But if that means getting on the trail before the rest of the free world, and before the fog burns off, well… okay. Once we pulled out the backpack and dogs figured they were going on a “W-A-L-K,” there was no turning back.
This trail is only a five-minute drive from the house, so I’m a little perplexed as to why we hadn’t done it sooner. No matter, it was a nice, cool morning. Hardly anyone was out today, so we unclipped the leashes for a bit and let the dogs go to town. In a dry spring, we even managed to spot a few blooms.
Before it gets too warm, we’ll have to try this one again; it seems great for trail running, even though we walked most of today.
