Having lived in places where this season is marked by the color brown, I just love California’s green winters. But the weather is heating up for spring and we’ll be losing our green hills to the brown of summer. So I wanted to put together a little list of places to go in OC with green hills for family hikes. The disclaimer is that this list is only good after the rain has come in December or January to make the hills green! We have sure had our share this year already.
Let me explain that “family hikes” for me can just be a brief nature walk together! You can just play at these places or even just drive by to take in the view. NOTE: None of these photos were taken this year — just my historic photos of the green! You’ll have to investigate yourself to see if your visit looks like my photos.
