Half of it was just a typical OC suburban hike with fwy noise and a view of homes. It wasn’t too crowded- a few bikers, runners and a couple horses. That was nice. The uphills were good and challenging but the downhill part was super steep, slippery and just stupid. Lots of different trails out there but I wouldn’t do this one again. I had to constantly look at my map to make sure I was going the right way. Lots of forks. The view wasn’t especially great or anything and not a lot of purdy flowers. I did see a road runner though. I partly picked this one because of the abundance of geocaches along the trail but they required bushwhacking and tromping through burrs and foxtails. I never found any of em. That said, parking was easy and the bathrooms were open.

The trail was over grown in some spots and very slippery in one. there was a few other people trying to go down and up. all of us were having a hard time. there was a few geocache along the trail though so that was cool.

Free parking at Chapparosa Park. Hike up Salt Creek Trail..took tunnel under Golden Lantern St. Lots of flowers, birds, lizards, bunnies, and road runners! Not too many people on the trail..was able to keep good distance! When I got to the intersection of Shea Trail I stayed on trail to Colinas Ridge up to the swing. On way back down I took a left to the crosses. Then up Shea Trail and back to the park. (took a couple side hills to add mileage and challenge). Total miles 7!!

First to Review

Parking is plenty and free at Chaparossa Community Park in a beautiful neighborhood in Laguna Niguel. A lot of pavement parking, and bathrooms nearby. The trail is clearly marked and easy to find. There is one large street crossing, but very manageable with crosswalk. The trail backs up to homes in some areas, but for the most part is either a service road (nice and wide) or a single track through a bit of forested area. Not too much shade and some great incline climbs. Super fun & short hike.
