(Diamond Bar, CA, May 4, 2017) – Diamond Bar trails provide opportunities for casual and active walking and hiking experiences or simply nature watching. If you haven’t already, make time this month to discover one or several of the trails found in the city’s parks and open space areas.
A few safety reminders before you head out:
- Let a friend or family member know where you will be and when you expect to return.
- Wear clothing and shoes that are appropriate for weather and trail conditions.
- Pack essentials – a cell phone with a fully charged battery, compass, water and snacks.
- Trails may go near property boundaries; stay on designated trail paths.
If you encounter a coyote or mountain lion during your hike, do not approach it or run away. Instead, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife suggests you face the animal and make loud noises. If this fails, throw rocks in the animal’s direction.
Trail descriptions, grades and even a printable map are available on the City website www.diamondbarca.gov/trails.
