Hellman Wilderness Park is a 5.5 mile loop trail located near the city of Whittier that features beautiful wild flowers, mountain views, and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year round. Dogs are allowed but must be on a leash.
Located in the Puente Hills, and managed by the Puente Hills Habitat Preservation Authority, Hellman Park offers trails into some of the most beautiful habitat in the area. Hike the trails on either side of the reservoir. Both trails are very aerobic up the mountainside taking you on a loop trail to the ridgeline overlooking Sycamore Canyon, a beautiful view. Along the way you will see a large collection of California brittlebush, a Sunflower family member with large yellow flowers in the spring. On a good day Catalina Island and downtown Los Angeles are observable.
There is a small parking lot at the park entrance on Greenleaf Avenue, but more parking is available on the street if it is full. The trailhead is clearly marked at the end of the parking lot, and there is a kiosk with a large trail map and other information about the park posted there.
