A lot of people. Might be better earlier in the morning. It was a little too hot.

My favorite place to hike. It’s getting much more crowded here lately.

Basically Peter's Canyon and Peter's Canyon Regional Park are a network of connected trails where you can easily go from one trail to the other. All the trials are dirt surface with some elevation areas. A few of the paths offer some steep inclines and can be challenging. Not a lot of canopy, but some areas provide some shade from the sun. Not a lot of wildlife but probably due to amount of traffic on trails.

Easy hike. About 3 short hill climbs. Otherwise, very flat, wide fire roads. Gorgeous views of Orange County. Doggies loved it. We loved it! Would highly recommend for a scenic view of OC and an easy breezy walk.

Great workout and incredible views. Only problem was finding the trail head. Took some navigation tricks to figure out where the parking was. For those trying to find it... jamboree and pioneer. Well worth the visit.
