BLACK STAR CANYON TRAIL

13333 Black Star Canyon Road, Silverado, Santa Ana, CA 92676 DIRECTIONS

The hiking can be accessed off Highway 241 at Santiago Canyon, and after half a mile, you turn left onto Silverado Canyon and then left onto Black Star Canyon Road. The falls drain just three square kilometers of land, so usually high flow only during the rainy season-length which is 6.5 miles round trip and 18.9 miles from downtown Santa Ana, CA. Visitors can explore the beautiful array of wildflowers and interesting rock formations in the nearby mountains. Black Star Canyon Trail offers free parking to visitors.
