A suburban city with a short commute to the busy cities of Los Angeles and Orange County, Chino Hills could be described as a quiet rural community. With over 40 local parks, the city provides residents with camping, hiking, biking, and horseback riding over trails that wind through woodlands, meadows, and ridgetops. However, tranquility and endless unspoiled nature are not all this little city has to offer.
