Located at 31330 Silverado Canyon Road, Silverado, California 92676. The Maple Springs Visitor Center serves as a major Orange County gateway into the Trabuco Ranger District of the Cleveland National Forest. The Visitor Center provides Forest information and public programs for residents of Orange County and the Southern California region. The Visitor Center is staffed solely by volunteers of the U.S. Forest and the Santa Ana Mountains Natural History Association.
Due to the recent fire in Silverado Canyon and the imminent danger of flooding and/or rolling rocks, the Maple Springs Visitor Center will remain closed. Please check back with us for further information concerning it's reopening.
Subject to volunteer staff availability, the Visitor Center is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00AM to 4:00PM.
We are currently recruiting new volunteers to staff the Maple Springs Visitor Center. Volunteers give out Forest information to visitors, develop displays & exhibits, and provide other educational programs for the public. The Visitor Center is open during the weekends for all to enjoy.
