Whether you are planning a weekend getaway right now or hoping to venture out safely in the future, the digital Irvine Visitors Guide is a valuable resource to help plan your visit to the center of Orange County.
Come out and enjoy the open space with us on the Orchard Hills loop trail. This trail meanders around an avocado orchard on the edge of the open space preserve and provides fantastic ridge-top views of Irvine and the Pacific coastline. The three-mile loop has several very steep climbs and uneven terrain, but the hike is done at a moderate pace. The effort is rewarded with a beautiful, unobstructed view to the west. Wear sturdy, closed-toed hiking shoes, and bring plenty of water.
