Beautiful Hagador Canyon in the Santa Ana Mountains. This beautiful canyon really caught me by surprise. I had never hiked in the Eastern part of the range so I didn’t really know what to expect. Well…. IT WAS AWESOME!
The hike it’s self is is just under 4 miles roundtrip but with neighboring Tin Mine Canyon just around the way you could easily do both hikes in one day.
The steepness of the eastern slopes of the range makes for awesome views.
The canyon is well shaded and the beautiful singletrack trail gives the narrow canyon a even more cozy feel.
