Costa Mesa, California Map


I do this hike to get some time in and for fitness. Have been a witness to Osprey, Kite and Harriers. As well as the Coyotes and other residents.
Not a difficult loop, but not always looking for difficult...sometimes you just need to get out and Get some dirt under your feet.

Easy trail for all fitness levels. Very enjoyable for runners and bikers as well. You'll find squirrels, birds, and lizards as well as plenty of wild flowers running along the trails.

Great road and easy. Highly recommended. Gorgeous view.

Road my bike! It was nice so many trails
There are bathrooms and water on the trail

Several paths to choose with different elevations. You can choose flat, gradual increase, steep, or even stairs. I brought my dog, kept her on the leash, had no problems. I plan to come back often because you can create various configurations for your path each time, making it as difficult or easy as you like.

I use to come here at dusk all the time in high school and now the area has definitely gotten more green and lush.

Though there isn't a decent view of anything in the dead of night it's one of the safer locations to trot through in the darkness so long as you don't run into some cracked out hooligan.

Good for a warm summer night. Easy to walk through and fun to experience the nightly noises of the park. There's a lot of diverging trails that branch out, but they all typically walk you back to the same place. Get lost and have fun! Just be prepared to swat moths and brush webs out of the way.

beautiful scenery from the start , its very ' private ' , I should say . great for long walks to relax your mind . must go to spot ! I recommend it .

Nice hike, nice wide trails. Kind of busy but good for a coastal city hike. Lots of cool river and pond views.
