I started this hike from Ronald Reagan Park. It makes an 8 miles hike and gives a more challenging hike than the regular Weir Canyon Loop which is 3.5 miles

Quiet until some scouts arrived, good to see kids outside instead of behind a screen. Wedding in progress. Pleasant beginner hike with options.

HikingGreat!

Nice, short hikes. Half of it has shades from the Oak trees and the soothing sound of streams even in peak Summer! Park outside if you plan to hike late as we did. Check their website for hours of Nature center. Bird observation area is nice. Great option for families with kids. Trail maps are not outside and are inside the Nature center.

It was a hot and humid day with a late start so we didn’t want to do anything crazy. This was a perfect trail as it’s close, plenty of parking (at least today), and it’s covered for most of the hike. Keep an eye out for lizards as they’re all over the trail so you don’t step on one or get startled.

This is really more of a walk and not a hike. If you have young kids it might be good. You basically enter the Nature Center to get to the hikes. Signs were confusing for trails. If you live close by then visit, if not it’s not a place I would drive to.

Great trail!!! My new fav spot! Plenty of shade..... the soothing sound of the stream water is serene. People are respectful and keep their distance. Plenty of rest stops. Nice parking lot. Will definitely come again!

This is my favorite. This is at Oak Canyon nature Center. There are lots of trees, so it doesn’t matter what the heat is like. I bring people of all ages (mom, older ain’t, nephews) very enjoyable.

Pretty nice and shady trail, good views on the Roadrunner ridge. Good short loop to get the blood flowing. Wandered off the original trail a little and kept going on the ridge found some cool rock formations too!

Great trail, I will definitely be back. Easy if you want it to be, but there are always little trails off the main one. I would HIGHLY suggest you look at my recording and take the back way to the top, its shaded!! The main way is in direct sunlight and lined with cacti. Stairs all the way up. I prefer stairs down! Lots of families with strollers and little kids hiking, good for an hour or two and lots of benches/areas for picnics or small groups.

Just went up tranquility trail and veered left back to the main road and started stream trail. Highly shaded trail with all of the trees. This time of year there are lots of baby orb weavers around so just be mindful of their webs.

The upper section of the trail is closed closest to the reservoir, but there are other very scenic trails to make it back to the picnic area (where we brought lunch to eat). Bathrooms are open and clean as well.

Definitely my favorite trail in OC. so many different ones to try within the nature center and offers a real camp like woodsy feel. Great for families as well.

Beautiful trails. A creek runs through most of it. Quick short hike. Cool little nature center too. Almost lowered my rating because no dogs are allowed but didn’t want to be a stickler.

Adorable oak forest with a stream. Lots of side trails to explore. Plenty of benches to sit and picnic areas. Super easy walking trail. You can add the Walnut Creek reservoir if you want a longer walk. It's at the top of the ridge.

This trail was a welcome surprise. Though it seems like a great place to bring kids it also offers a really great hour-plus hike. I could clearly see snow on the mountains from the Bluebird and Wren trails. Very few people for a late afternoon and lots of water in the Stream. Would totally recommend.

This a great easy trail. Saw couple of signs that doesn’t not allowed dogs to use this trail. Used this trail in the morning but it did feel hot just make sure you bring water.
