The OC Parks web site says this trail is now open. A few signs 2 miles in (northeastern most portion) say it is still closed, but that may be for people entering from that remote location and those signs simply have not yet been removed.

The trail is very stark and surreal after having been burned in the Canyon Fires. Only cactus and the largest trees and bushes survived, and the only wildlife are birds. Hopefully nature does its job and rejuvenates the wildflowers this spring. The rain from 2 weeks ago finally helped new grass sprouts everywhere, a uniform 2 to 3 inches. Weekly visits may be fun for my son to watch nature rebound and return.

Beautiful mostly shaded hike you can make short or long. Saw some adorable ducks, a hawk and other birds. Would be great for hiking with small kids as there’s a nice play area near the nature center.

According to the revised map from OC Parks. The Weir Canyon loop is open. http://www.ocparks.com/civicax/filebank/blobdload.aspx?BlobID=70709

Enjoyed the trail.

Great trail. Watch your step. Tons of goose poo.

The trail is open from Dawn-Dusk
It was closed when I went at 7pm

Fun, easy, and clean.

It's more of a walking trail then a hiking trail. And the river bed is fenced off so no water to cool down in. It wasn't bad, but I wanted a hiking trail.

Pretty trail with lots of shade. well kept. Pretty easy, but there are some stairs and a few easy hills. I often do the trail a few times to make the hike longer.

This trail is amazing. You can do an easy one mile loop or you can connect Weir and Santiago trails to do 10+ mile strenuous runs.
The 4ish Mile Weir loop gives you everything you could ask for in terms of terrain with constantly changing scenery ( huge plus ). This is a moderate trail run for a newer runner where technique can really be worked on. If your looking for an added challenge and/or additional mileage add on the loop to Robbers Roost.

This is a real easy hike. It will be a mix of sun and shade for this trial. A portion of this hike will be up on a hill. On that trail you'll come across a split, one trail that will take you over to a 1.7 mile loop that goes around a reservoir and the other will take you back down to the nature center. This is probably an easy 1-2 hours hike.

Great hike.Easy as well my only major recommendation would be to get an early start on this hike maybe 7-8am because there is no shade throughout the entire hike.There are lots of twists and turns and snakes !! beware of rattlesnakes they could pop out of nowhere .Regulars here say they will see multiple rattlesnakes on warm days .I myself saw one with my fellow hiker .Other than that Enjoy !

Love it! Clean

Beautiful hike with an early 8 AM start time. The trail includes lots of ups and downs with twisty paths, We went counter clockwise. I was thankful I brought my poles. They were useful for the steep down hills and up hills. Dogs are allowed on a leash, but the trail is exposed to sun with no shade to speak of. They may get really hot if there is no overcast skies as there was today.

beautiful to visit with kids

Pretty simple, lots of uphill. The markers confused us a bit, bc there's a Weir Canyon, and an Old Weir Canyon trail, but it's so open, and you can use the mansions around you as markers, so getting lost isn't something to fear.

plenty of birds but the high fences make for an unpleasant walk.

Another great time on the trail. Now that it's warming up make sure to take plenty of water and a proper hat. I went for a noontime walk & drank a grip. More than I did just 2 weeks ago. Snakes are also out so be mindful of the trail.

Nice workout! Flowers were in full bloom and lots of greenery! Lots of up and down hills so a bit challenging however would go back again anytime! Did the loop counter-clockwise and passed quite a few people going the opposite way, so we'll try clockwise next time.

honestly, this is what trails aspire to be. multiple connected trails and multiple high view points, rest points, goes from easy to moderate and depending how active you are.. could be harder rising in elevation. I hike quite some bit & this is a cute and fun hike! Be safe on the hills!
