NOTE: As of July 2020, several trails in this park are closed due to a recent fire. Please check here for updates: https://www.ocparks.com/parks/irvine This trail is very close to the route of the Santiago Oaks and Irvine Regional XC Race. It has some technical descents as well as nice single track with nice views of the city. Partway down Chutes Ridgeline you can connect onto Chutes witch is easier if you feel that Chutes Ridgeline is too difficult. While originally made for biking it is also very okay for hiking and running. The trails are nicely worn-in for XC bikes, and there is even a spot where where users will find repair tools and a complimentary air pump to refill tires. $5 entrance fee.Show more
