Crystal Cove State Park Historic District Walking Tour is a 0.9 mile out and back trail located near Newport Coast, CA. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking and walking.
Take some time to relax and explore the 12-acre historic district, once part of the Irvine Ranch lands, consisting of 46 Cottages built in the 1920s and 1930s. For decades, families have camped and played here. Artists have captured the Cove's natural beauty on canvas for almost 100 years. Hollywood filmmakers made movies here and constructed small thatched huts on the beach for films they were creating. Some of these film sets later evolved into cottages. People built cottages on the bluffs and on the sand, and families lived in the cottages until 2001. Today, many of the cottages can be rented by the general public.
