As seen from my driveway yesterday. Poppies blossoming on the hills looking towards Beaumont and Big Bear beyond.

That scene is extremely compelling. Makes me really want to be out there hiking amongst the poppies.......but it all looks so extremely steep! Are there any established trails out there where the poppies are?

Hi Tom, the Walker Canyon and Chino Hills areas all have plenty of trails and fire roads for poppy viewing. Notice the trails from these iPhone pics.
Not sure about the area from Navy Doc.

Took the kids out to Walker Canyon last night. Ugh. It took us a wee bit longer to get there that what the GPS predicted, so that by the time we got there the sun was about to set and the poppies had all closed up for the night. Place was definitely crowded, and trampled. Still pretty good views though, and the girls had fun running up and down the side of the hill.

Robert I took this trail this morning. I was there for about 3 hours and only saw 2 people for 5 minutes. I am glad you posted pictures or I would have never gone here. Thanks

Hi Paul,

Glad you got to go there, Sunday was insane by 10:30. We got there around 8:00 before it got too crowded. Crazy blooms for sure, post some up!!!

I'm not sure about that particular area Tom. That was taken from my house using my 100-400L @ 400mm. I'm sure there are areas nearby equally covered with poppies where there is access.

I love the steepness and ruggedness and the overall remoteness of that area you showed us. I think that would pretty much keep others out, and if one were there they would have it completely to themselves. Others have shown local poppy meadows, but they are overrun with people by time late morning rolls around, as access seems quite easy and the terrain not very steep or particularly rugged.

If one wants to spend a whole day in expansive poppy meadows and never have another human anywhere near them at any time, the area you showed us seems to be a spot where this would be possible! However, if there are no trails, then just getting into the area could be quite a difficult endeavor.

It's pretty amazing that that is the view from your driveway! You must live at quite an elevation - several hundred feet above the valley floor, at least.

Tom, the elevation where I live is about 1600' above sea level and is in a valley. To the north is a line of hills with a higher valley and then the San Bernardino mountain range beyond. The town of Beaumont happens to be in that higher valley at this point and the 10 Freeway goes by it. Big Bear is in the mountains behind that around this point.

Here's a wider angle of the steep hills with the poppies north of where I live and a section from Google maps where I placed a "line of sight" from my house towards the poppy fields in those hills.

Oh, my goodness! I got fooled! In that photo you posted in post #509, I really thought you took it from a level equal to the poppy slopes. Never would have imagined you were aiming the camera up at such an angle.

No wI can see why those slopes are so compelling to me - such ruggedness! I can't help but to wonder what wildlife is up there amongst the blooms.

The utility towers I see at the top - they have to have an access road leading to them........probably a rugged, rutted little two-track dirt road. Is it possible to drive on the access road? If so, then you could drive all the way to the top, park near the towers, then hike down to the poppy patches from there. We have utility towers placed atop mountains and buttes here in my area, and the roads to them are not secured or posted, so anyone who figures it out and has a capable vehicle can drive up them without getting arrested for trespassing. It can be a pretty good way to get up into lonely areas that otherwise would be inaccessible.

I am very familiar with that restaurant. I haven't been to the new one in Buena Park yet, but been to the one in Lynwood quite a few times. It is a fancy Mexican restaurant with great food, drinks, and service. I'll check out the one in BP one day. Thanks for the heads up!
