Many of you will be surprised to learn that Anaheim Hills has its own
rail station, but it does! Unfortunately, it is not centrally located in
Anaheim Hills. Instead it is located to the far western end of the
Anaheim Canyon at the corner of Tustin Avenue and East La Palma Avenue.
The parking lot behind the Carls Jr. serves as parking for both the office
building and the rail station.
I know that some of you will challenge that this location is even in
Anaheim Hills. It is certainly not within the area of the original
Anaheim Hills Master Plan. But then again, neither are any of the
businesses and commercial centers up and down this stretch of East La
Palma Avenue that identify themselves as located in Anaheim Hills and
prominently display "Anaheim Hills" on their signs!
This rail stop is only served by Metrolink commuter trains. It is a
very unusual rail station in that it is one of the few to have no
direct service to Los Angeles! To get to or from Los Angeles, you have
to change trains at the Orange Metrolink station. You can also connect
to Amtrak trains that serve the entire west coast from San Diego to
Seattle, Washington by changing trains at the Amtrak/Metrolink station
in Santa Ana.
Most trains that serve this station in the morning start in San Bernardino
and head down to Irvine. In the afternoon, most of the trains start in
Irvine and head back to San Bernardino. There is some limited service in
the opposite direction, but there is no service outside of commuter hours.
The trains are scheduled such that passengers can make connections at
the Orange Metrolink station to get to and from Los Angeles.
A shuttle bus operates to carry passengers from the morning train to
businesses in the area and then to bring them back to the station after
work. OCTD bus stops are within walking distance of the station on
East La Plama Avenue and Tustin Avenue that serve Anaheim Hills and the
