A trail that takes you through canyon and up to Moro ridge, with sweeping coastal views. The trail begins and ends at the El Moro Visitor Center. This loop gives you a tour of the El Moro Canyon, then climbs over 800' in elevation to the ridge line, where you'll enjoy some of the best coastline views in the park. Parking Fee: $15

My friends and I were Hike to complete for 14 miles but chose loops so we expected Falls but not there dang!

Multiple distances you can do, was talked into the 9 mile loop. Multiple Hills, various inclines. Not my kind of hike but for those who like distance and challenge it's for you.

Great mountain bike trail. Share the path with many group homers in the summer. Highly recommended. I think I can.

Perfect local hike, lots of options for short loops and longer days. Have backpacked in and camped overnight as well. Love this part of Newport Coast.
