From Lazy Ass Hiking:
Fresno Canyon is a well-kept trail that leads from Green River up to the Cleveland National Forest. This, and other trails in the area, have been around since the 40’s.
The start of the trail is marked as private, but it is in fact City land. Corona is currently working to create a trail sign and open up the trailhead for hikers.
The first part of the trail is dry and wild, and you’ll be saying “Kristin, why did you tell me to go here?”
Just keep at it.
A ways down, you will cross a road to continue along the trail. The trail then will begin a steep climb. At this point, you’ll be like “Seriously, I hate you Kristin. You’re the worst.”
But, with steep climbs come great views. Once you get past the first steep hill, you’ll begin to appreciate what is so great about those trails.
Do note that the trail is extremely exposed, so wear sunscreen and a hat and sunglasses, and bring water, and don’t die of exposure and blame it on me. I mean, I warned you.
This trip can be as long or as short as you’d like. There are several trails that weave in and out of one another, making this area great for exploring. It’s also not highly trafficked, so if you’re looking for solitude, you’ll have it here.
Although, my friend did say he went up there and saw a guy with a shovel, burying something, so maybe you should take a friend.
And some pepper spray.
Afterward, there are plenty of places to eat at the Promenade. Enjoy some pizza for me!
