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.

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

The upper part of this trail as shown on the map is called the Chutes trail, which is a mountain bike course, bumpy, steep, and sandy, definitely not "easy". The first part is a path defined by fencing, nothing too exciting but a nice easy walk.

Love this place. 3 miles to the end and back or make it what you want. Bathrooms at both ends a plus.

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.

Peaceful and easy beach stroll!

I’m in from Colorado and was looking for a nice hike with a view close to Anaheim. Hard to find any that aren’t just walks! This one did get some mild elevation gain to the top of the hill, but the view is obstructed by smoke every direction. I could see some decent view of the nearby neighborhoods, but that’s it.
Next time I’ll make the trek to San Diego for hiking with ocean views!

so clean
nice paved walkway...
beautiful birds

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:)

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.

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.

my place to go when I want a flat paved run

Nice trails in city with lots of trees for shade. However flat well maintained trails are easy not moderate

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

Great place I do enjoy everything about the loop

Great hike. It's moderate at the start and end points but most of the canyon is fairly flat making for it being easy. You cross a few neat steel or aluminum bridges that go over nice little creeks. I would definitely do this hike again.

Moderate route with hills and fast descents and something to everyone !

Easy beautiful trail, part goes on a paved road, the other part is on the beach which is a good balance. Parking rate Mon-Fri after 5 pm - $3.
