Outdoors

  • Bommer Canyon

    Dating back more than 180 years, rustic Bommer Canyon beckons hikers, mountain bikers, and all other outdoor enthusiasts. Specific trails in this area are open daily for self-guided hikes; other areas within Bommer are accessible through guided programs. The rustic, former Cattle Camp is a wonderful setting for group events.

  • Quail Hill

    The 2.8-acre Quail Hill Trailhead, an easy two-mile natural surface trail, provides a great location to connect to southern Irvine’s extensive trail network. While visiting, bring along your cell phone and experience Irvine’s self-guided cell phone audio tour.

  • San Joaquin Marsh & Wildlife Sanctuary

    Calling all birders! You can see hundreds of species at this refuge, preserve, and sanctuary that’s nearly 2/3 the size of New York City’s Central Park. More than 300 acres of coastline freshwater wetlands and 12 miles of trails have been preserved by Irvine city planners. Today, this notable nature respite attracts great blue herons, snowy egrets, finches, falcons, brown pelicans, yellow warblers, and other feathered friends.

  • Mountains To Sea Trail

    On this 22-mile trail, the only constant is change. Starting in the untamed, oak-filled Weir Canyon, you can walk, hike, bike or jog south to Upper Newport Bay and the edge of the Pacific Ocean.
