Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park

About the Park
Dramatic 100-foot sandstone cliffs and coiled red-rock formations distinguish this 1,800-acre park. Tree creek beds wind along a canyon floor densely forested with sycamore and oak trees inhabited by diverse wildlife. Hikers enjoy 20 miles of trails and ranger-led nature walks for groups are available by reservation. Dogs are not allowed.

In addition to mountain lions, there are rattlesnakes and poison oak in the park, so caution is advised. Mountain lion attacks have occurred at Whiting Ranch in the recent past, so extreme caution is advised. Check the Orange County Parks website for tips on preventing mountain-lion attacks.
