Summary: The East Coyote Hills trail is a gentle slopeing equestrian trail that is sourounded by the Coyote hills Golf course. This trail is good for trail running or a easy family stroll for fresh air. The scenery is not much to look at as the trail is mainly off of Brea and Bastanchaury Blvds. The trail starts out relatively flat on Brea Blvd. Once you turn on Bastanchaury the trail gently slopes down to the lowest point by the golf course entrance. As you continue on, the trail gains elevation until you reach State College Blvd. Just before State College is the entrance to Vista Park where you can take the Panormama trail for a little bit of scenery. If you continue on the trail, you will end at Craig Regional park.
Trailhead: From 91 Freeway exit Harbor Blvd. Travel North to Brea Blvd. Take Brea Blvd North for about a 1.5 miles and turn into the ball park at Trail Rest park (on east side of street). The trail is behing the ball park. The East Coyote trail goes north and the Panorama trail goes south. the two trails also meet at the Summit House (Vista Park). So it is possible to "loop" the trails for a mile hike. (Lat:33.89914 Lon:-117.90992)

Hike was almost all horse trail through residential and city streets. Very short area of Chaparrel.

I would go again ... make sure you stay on the equestrian trail and not on the paved path at the beginning or you will end up on the golf course and eventually get gently told by the ambassador you are not allowed there.

To get there for me, I take Euclid all the way down to the Jack-in-the-box. Turn in on the residential streets and there it is. Starts at the end of Coyote Canyon and I cross Castlewood into their trail (just following the dirt path) and its a great hike! :) The views are worth it, imo, and the terrain isn't too bad! Hills get a little steep, I feel bad for the bikers. I saw, go visit! :)

If you cross Brea Blvd at the signal, you can take the trail down to the Brea dam and connect to the Fullerton 12-mile loop.
