  • Both paved and dirt paths. I did ride this route with one small section through the neighborhood, and that was nice as well. Nice views all the way around the bay 
  • Great paths for walking, biking, and hiking. Beautiful views of the Newport bay leading all the way down to the ocean. 
  • This is a beautiful magical place. The sunsets are stunning and surrounding scenery is beautiful. So grateful to live in SoCal.
  • So glad to be close to the Preserve. Great biking trail, hiking trails, views, wildlife, and more. Keep the Bay safe and pretty for generations to come!
  • fun place to drop in for a run. lots of trails (some of them are pretty eroded, but still passable).
  • Amazing trail here great for walking, biking, or running. The views here are spectacular especially if you make it to the top you get a panoramic Ocean View. I highly recommend this Trail to anyone that lives in Orange county is a must-see.
  • Nothing spectacularly scenic to see but is a nice wide open nature preserve. You'll see some sea birds.
