I guess how you feel about this place depends on how you plan to use it. Could be fun on a bike (track bike) since it is all paved and don't have to worry about lots of traffic. Could be good for a family with young kids since and a stroller would be feasible. Could be good for joggers. I went with my dog to hike and there are no dirt trails, there is excessive debris in the water/plants and there is a funky sewage smell in places.

One side of loop doesn’t allow cars and the other side only allows cars in one direction so it’s a very calming/peaceful walk, run or bike ride. Very flat except in one small/short area. Nice waterway views all along trail.

nice walking in the morning

easy flat trails with great views.

I have directions for a nice 3 mile loop on HikingGuy dot com

great place for a walk, a jog, a hike, a run.. everything!

The bridge is closed. But a good path is closer to the water. If you do all the loops it will in zigzag fashion 6miles

One of my favorite go-to spots when I want some fresh air and walk my pup.

Great hike with kids! There's basically 3 levels of hiking. A paved route, an easy dirt route and a slightly more challenging one with steps and inclines. Lots of wildlife, including rabbits, squirrels, lizards, birds and even a coyote. It's near OC airport, so even low flying planes overhead.

Good for a chilly day. No shade for hot days. Very crowded and not very scenic.

This was an easy trail. We were lucky that there was very little traffic. We took our soon to be 3 year old on this trail without any problems. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a peaceful day outdoors.

Beautiful. A walk more than a hike.

Easy, you can see the airplanes taking off from John Wayne airport.

Love the trail! Wish the bicyclists would keep it at 10 mph and give a passing side and number of cyclists in your group along with their bell ringing on the trail. When you're coming from behind I know which way to step and keep us all safe.

Really easy trail for all types of activities. Jogging, hiking, walking, or even biking! You can even drive it (one way) for part of it. There is a dirt trail but also a paved trail for bikes. For biking, it is a 10 mile loop and fairly flat. I bike it using a hybrid - any bike will do here. There are 2 steep parts, but it isn't so bad - for the most part this loop is very flat. I don't break out a sweat when I bike it, so it is nice and enjoyable if you just want some fresh air with some beautiful scenery. Watch out for horse poop on some parts of it. You'll see lots of rabbits in the early morning and evening.

I walked on the paved road portion with my 2 y/o in the stroller. Great walk! Next time we will both hike the dirt trails! Will come back her again

Very easy! Nice views and a nice variety of ecosystems to spot along the way. If you go down near the marsh area, definitely wear shoes you doing mind getting a bit mud on!

nice trail but way too much horse poo
