Great for little ones to see the animals.

Great warm up trail for either hiking or trail running. 2 1/2 miles on and 2 1/2 miles out of very easy and moderate trail hiking. Allow three hours to complete the hike both in and back.

Beautiful morning walk!

Everything was blocked couldn’t get anywhere.

Nice and calm route. there were some nice rock formations. i saw a bird.

Easy enjoyed all the different birds

perfect

Nice area for a power walk or morning jog.

...nowhere to go...trail blocked...only walked about 1/2 mile...

Great little out and back trail! Not completely flat, but not overly challenging, either. Terrain is very dry, but that's no surprise right now. Creek was flowing a little bit, nice to be able to walk along some water. Lots of available, free parking at the trailhead. Directions from All Trails are perfect. No restrooms or drinking water. Will definitely do this again when all I have time for is a quick, local hike.

Favorite run while visiting Newport Beach. Dirt trail, rolling hills, and partial coverage make this a fun, scenic, and comfortable run for those not afraid to tackle some steep inclines and declines.

I like this trail because of the challenging uphill segments and the cool ocean breeze. I like it even more now that I run into occasional hikers more frequently than I used to, so I don't feel like it is dangerous to go alone.

We take our young kids here all the time. It’s a fun, easy hike with so many cool birds to identify. Beautiful, peaceful, and nice HB locals. No bikes allowed.

Trail is actually 5.2 using Cougar. Nice tail in the city good to have.

I loved this trail, but it is not moderate. There are one or two easy sections and the majority of the trail is moderate. But, Camarillo Trail is rated difficult, this is seen on the trail maps that are at the trail. So, how is the trail? Well most of it is double track with probably around 30-40% single track. It has a mix of smooth to rock and technical trails. This means that if you are a beginner to moderate skill level you can ride the trail and walk down and up the parts that you can't. In short, I really enjoyed this trail and I will definitely come back to help me improve until I can clean the whole trail.

Super fun trail, lots of random ways to go and not much structure, so if you like it that way this will be cool for you.

On oct 25, 2018, got out and hiked this trail, based on reading the feedback. I live off PCH, so this is really convenient, as the trail head on poppy ave is @1/2 mile from PCH. The trail is very nice and lots of greenery, is narrow in some parts, but just fine. It reminds me of the Lizard trail in Crystal Cove but not as tough, as there is not many steep hills. There is shade on the trail, and opportunity to take your cap off. The sound of water is soothing.

I hike alone, as I’m retired and get out on trail during the week when it’s not full of bikers. “Ihikealone”. Really enjoyable hike in the city.

Me and my boyfriend run here ever morning and we love it, it’s so peaceful and beautiful! Love love love!!!!

We parked on Poppy Ave for free and walked a block to the trailhead followed trail to the end and took bob cat trail back down which joins buck gully. Very nice and about 35% shade. 541 ft elevation took 2 hrs and burned 1000 cal. More of a moderate hike. 5.3mi round trip. Saw a 3ft snake:)

Great hike! It took me about 1.5 hours to do the 4.8 mile loop. I started at 2:30pm on a Thursday and I only saw two other people on the trail. Views from the higher elevations are gorgeous. I was able to see all the way to DTLA. Trails are well marked and the ranger has maps available.

it was a nice ride I road it on a weekend Saturday mid-afternoon, there wasn't a lot of people on the trail so that was nice the trails fairly thin and it's short but it's nice to just check out and get a quick ride in.

09/24/18 1st time. Definitely enjoyed the day.

I have walk this trial several times , but last times I have noticed less and less water and more house construction. So much destruction around the area. machines extracting water too. Very sad .

These are all of the good things about this trail

Very easy trail
three bridges to go over
stream going through the canyon
fish in the stream over some bridges
Well maintained trails
Places to rest through the way of the hike


Things we did not like about the hike

The best view of the water is right when you start
The end of the hike leads to an uphill battle to nowhere next to houses

Only go if you are a local.

Obviously a popular place to go! Quite a few people sharing the trail on the way in but drops off the further you go in and becomes more secluded. 0 shade so make sure to bring proper sun protection. The hike back up through Rattlesnake Trail is the best part. Some "mini scrambling" and cool places to rest for 5 mins and enjoy the view. Not my favorite hike in the area but still worth the outing :).

Pretty area, rather empty on weekday mornings, and lots of water. Biggest thing to note is that it is CONFUSING with lots of little trails branching off all over. If you track/record on this app though, you can see when you’re getting turned around. Or don’t track it and test your wayfinding skills (if you don’t need to be anywhere anytime soon)!

The hike was fairly nice and there was nobody on the trail. Parking is difficult to get to if your coming from the north, because of the Uturn on the 133. Those exiting the 73 toll road tend to not stop/yield when turning right. I probably would not come again due to this.

In love with this trial! Green, full of plants and all kids if cute animals : )
