hiking

dogs on leash

The Irvine Regional Park is more suited for those that want to have a picnic, have a casual stroll, and/or read a book. The terrain is mostly dirt (with lots of horse poo on the trail), and a combination of dirt & paved cement. It is a very easy walk; having said that I saw that there is a higher elevation trail that we could have explored. There are many trails to explore so I won't be running back to this one too soon.

Great view of DTLA And Catalina on a clear day

I loved it. I love the challenges and the options that the trails had to offer and the abundance of wildlife I even got to see a bobcat

Huge park with lots to do. Don't expect a true nature trail or hike unless you venture out from the perimeter of the park.

Sweet and simple trail. Not much shade so bring water and sun protection!

Great trail, get there early 5:30am or 6am for great weather.

Side note you have to pay for parking here.
First time hiking here and there are a lot of different trails here. It was late in the day so I did a quick loop. I'll need to come back to do some exploring. The people at the gate will hand you a map of all the trails I suggest you bring that with you on the hike. Also this is a really family friendly hiking area too.

Good for seeing wildlife and the old historic dam. Mostly easy tho moderate but great local stuff for getting out in nature.

Quick and easy. Nice trails. Horses, bikers, hikers, runners, kids and dogs a plenty... Green and a ton of flowers everywhere. We'll be back.

Our first trail find using this app. We're new at this whole hiking thing so we were baby-stepping like Bob. We know we have to get better at reading trail maps cuz we were constantly confused as to which fork in the road we should take. Leaving breadcrumbs is not an option. Some nice flowers along the way. Dodging old hoof prints was our main concern. Lots of mountain bikers. Never too steep. Nice water area which was a good photo op. So far, so good...

Beautiful hike. Its definitely not easy maybe moderate. There are many different trails you can take. Fun! will return and master it.

Great place for a hike, walk somewhere just to be way from the hassle.

parked in lot 2 and started on the horseshoe trail, which led me back around the paved one...yawn. Then I came back to where I parked and went in the opposite direction on roadrunner trail and ended up crossing into Santiago oaks and going way up to the top of a hill which was an awesome view and perfect meditation spot. like!

Beautiful trail and excellent on a slow Monday.

Always enjoy going to Irvine Regional Park, this time of year it's still not too busy. It's an easy loop and we love letting the dog play in the grass. Later in the year it gets pretty crowded on the main thoroughfare but there is lots of little trails to go play on.

This trail was amazing! but I would definitely not call it easy...

Did an awesome 7 mike hike. We did a big loop up toward Anaheim Hills along the ridge and hiked down into Irvine Regional Park. it was difficult to find the trail to cross the creek. The map they gave us didn't show the area south west of the park. but we made it to the Dam and back into Santiago park. So many. areas to explore -I want to go back asap.

It's a pretty nice place. There are many many different routes to take on this trail but the only issue is it can get super super hot once you get up to the mountains. If you stay down low & hike at the bottom there's some shade but if you want to take the long routes be prepared for heat! Bring lots of water & maybe something to fan yourself with because once you get to the mountains there will be no shade if you're going up high.
