I saw a coyote pup and a rabbit while hiking on the trail. Beautiful views with well maintained dirt roads. Up and down steep hills all along the way. Bring plenty of water - a great trail for running!

Short hike in and amongst a pretty urbanized area. Saw a few pelicans and various birds. There are no signs but plenty of ways to loop around where you came from. Flat the whole way and pretty dense with weeds and bush. Cool for an hour or so, but not going to blow your mind :).

Park in the adjacent neighborhood with ease. Hike is fairly strenuous in the beginning but you're quickly rewarded with fantastic 360 degree views of OC. I only encountered 1 person the whole time, which was nice. On the loop back, the trail takes you on the road, but I cut back in to go back the same way I came in, and was much better to avoid the road. Took around 1.5 hours with a couple of little stops. Cool little hike

It was an alright hike. Physically, it had its challenging moments, but nothing not unmanageable.

Because of its location and the high foot traffic, it felt less like an adventure and more like an orchestrated attraction...a la Disneyland.

Though I have to say, there were some very nice vistas

park in the dirt lot off Fullerton Rd...its free. I love how challenging this loop is but be cautious. Someone's car got broken into in the lot and on the trail around a bend was a huge rattlesnake! I saw 3 deer on my last hike here. Use the alltrails app. I got lost the first 2 times.

Great hiking trail with multiple hills and great views of the Pacific Ocean. This is our go-to hike near our home in OC.

Good place for a morning walk. Follow Google maps, the signs inside are not very helpful

Hike showcased great views of Anaheim and Irvine. The red soil mixed with the rocks created a beautiful dessert atmosphere.

Forgot they are closed on Mondays. Hiked the regional park instead.

Excellent place to relax and enjoy after a long day of work. Many wild animals to see at dawn or dusk. Trails go uphill majority of the way with Spectacular Scenery once you reach the top.

Great place to hike !!! Easy to get to .
Hikes are easy and scenic. Buy a annual pass if you plan on coming back . It's a great deal !!!

Went on a solo hike on a Sunday. it was difficult to find the trail, the directions on how to get there, from this app, are not accurate at all. I had to stop and Google it. Use this address: 2100 powder canyon trail. it will take to the trail head and the parking lot which is free and it was not busy or full at all. It is a dirt and gravel road and it is very uneven so if your car is low, you will hit some road underneath your car. The trail itself was fun. there are some spots that have plenty of shade but most of it was very open. there are alot of forks and different ways to go that take you to other trails. I stuck to the map and followed the app and GPS. it started to get kinda confusing towards the end but watch the GPS from the app and you'll be fine. plenty of inclines and it will challenge you!

Beautiful and challenging

A little more than we bargained for due to the inclines, but it was worth it.

Better for hiking than running, not enough even trail to get a good pace for more than a half mile. Could benefit from a cleared and well marked trail.

was a good hike. went early morning loved listening to the birds. very peaceful.

Great little trail. Well maintained.

Great hike next door to me! I dig it just not when it’s 80° or higher! Main reason I always bring my dog and this hike in heat is no way enjoyable to her! It’s great to and gets the blood pumping just bring a hat and some H20! Stay safe my friends!

Decent hike around Crystal Cove Park - completely unshaded. A nice way to end the hike is to go to Laguna Beach :) There are many rolling hills along the way for a good workout.

I finished this in under 3 hours.

Great conditioning hike going up the BFI with amazing view of Newport Coast and PCH. For an extra challenge, after BFI, go down East Cross Over then up Poles :))

A great workout for hiking

Love this 2 mile hike, walk it 3-4 times a week and always a joy. constantly greeted along the trail by squirrels, rabbits, lizards, birds and the turtles.
if you just want a quiet place to be with nature, there are many areas along trails to sit on benches and take it all in. Early morning and later afternoons are my favorite times.

$6 parking cash only. There is a wells fargo close by.

Had a difficult time finding the exact trail (apparently this trail is not one of their trails... It was "man-made"..... That's what I was told) so we ended up just going on a random trail that offered a variety of physical challenges. I still had fun! Not much shade. Bring lots if water and snacks. We saw lots of squirrels and bunnies!

This trail is not that beautiful. I mean...if it’s all you have then fine. But there is no greenery, telephone poles along the route and yes the coast is nice but it’s obstructed by peoples houses!! If you want a long hike to do and not drive far, this is a good choice. But it’s not as beautiful as it’s made out to be. I parked near the baseball field to avoid the $15 parking fee....which also is absolutely ridiculous.

Good trail! Some decent inclines in the 1st section, then we hit shade and a cool breeze for a long stretch before another hill towards the end. We went in June on an 80 degree day. Make sure you have water and watch for snakes.
