“A 5.5-mile multi-use path connecting North Cannon Street and the eastern end of Irvine Regional Park”— John McKinney
The trail begins as a doubletrack but narrows once within the boundaries of the regional parks. Here the path is commonly shaded by oak trees.
This is a multi-use trail, so all hikers should be aware of the right-of-way rules, their surroundings, and other users.
Thanks to John McKinney, The Trailmaster, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about trails in California, check out his guides at The Trailmaster Store.
