Purpose of this Website

This picture is to impress you with the extent of Fullerton Trails. There’s 28 miles in a city that is only 5 mile wide.  Detailed maps are available in the web pages for each trail.

. . . is to solve the logistics for walking portions of the 28 miles of Fullerton trails. Directions to places to park are in bold green font.  The walks described have something of a goal, such as a view. There are also trail loops described. There are more than 50 walks altogether. Also described in the text are interesting things to watch for, comments on park use, and some technical material on dams. A few of the trails have history to read about including a slide show on the Electric Railway that passed through what is now the Juanita Cooke Trail.

(Under the Fullerton Walks, above ↑ there’s 3 indexes: click one.)
