Just about the only vivid shades of green that you will find during California's summer are to be found in the few remaining natural estuaries. The Irvine Coast Trail (ultimately linking UC Irvine by way of San Diego Creek) follows the north bank of upper Newport Bay providing intimate glimpses of a salt marsh ecosystem. Pickleweed and eel grass fill the low flats. Willows, sycamores, and invasive Brazillian Pepper (do not touch!) cover the ground between the dry coastal sage habitat (distinguished by its grasses, buckwheat, and, in some places, cholla cactus) and the salt marsh. Bring binoculars or spotting scopes for a good look at the rare California least tern, skimmers, Great Blue Herons, white pelicans, snowy egrets, and savannah sparrows. Fall brings the best variety of migratory wading birds and ducks. The scenery may not be the best, but the riot of nature that goes on year round makes up for it.

Very nice area if you’re looking for an easy, quiet day outdoors. You can see a lot of wildlife, especially birds. There are some hiking only trails and paved paths which cyclists and equestrians can also use. A lot of joggers on the paved path as well. It seems that some of the trails are occasionally closed or relocated for different restoration projects since I couldn’t follow the path outlined on AllTrails exactly. I would go back for a low key cycle or if I feel like nature watching.

Trail is great for a mellow power walk.

It was an overcast day so the temperature was pretty good. If you start before 8am, the sun wont be totally out for a couple of hours, you'd enjoy the trail more. There is NO shade the whole way. Put sunblock on :) after 10am. This is an easy trail, no elevation to speak of, easy and flat most of the way. Lots of people, bikes, and some horse riders too. Everyone was courteous. Nice hike. Part of the trail is paved, part dirt path. So be prepared your shoes and legs/pants will get very dusty.

This hike offers winding dirt trails that run parallel to a paved path. The view of the preserve is beautiful and there’s a lot of small wildlife to see like rabbits and lizards. The trails are not shaded so beware and wear sunscreen! Also long workout pants may be helpful for trails that have overgrowth.

This is a really nice trail that is good for all levels. It is very well kept with all the trash cans scattered around which is nice. There are tons of different paths which all eventually meet up at some point. There were a good amount of people using the trail for a weekday but there was still plenty of parking when I arrived at 8:30. Lots of dogs can be seen throughout the paths

easy hike for kids, mind you don't do the whole loop depending in their age but great views

Just under 6 miles if you complete the full loop, and out/back portion. Flat and easy trail, minimal incline. Views and breeze add to the value of this trail.
