Arroyo Trabuco Wilderness Trail

Posted by on Feb 10, 2016 in Biking Trails, Hiking Trails, Mission Viejo, Parks | 0 comments

  Since I have the morning carpool and drive a suburban full of boys to Mission Viejo every morning, I have been exploring more of the trails and parks in the area after drop-off. After a late wake-up, and being worried about one kid being away a camp, I wanted to go for a walk where is was calm, peaceful, and surrounded by nature, so I explored the Arroyo Trabuco Wilderness Trail. It is one of my favorite trails to explore right after a rain. There is always trickling water that your kids get to jump into to cool down while on the hike. The trail is located right next to the Arroyo Trabuco Golf Course. There is a small parking lot that holds about 5-6 cars, and then there is overflow parking available at the golf course. The...

Part of the trail was paved which quickly turned into a bark-covered path. There were so many twists and turns to the...

  During a small family staycation at Hotel Irvine, my daughter, and I checked out some bikes from the Hotel and went on a Mother Daughter bike ride along the San Diego Creek Trail. I can’t remember the last time that I went on a bike ride other than around the neighborhood, and we had the best time creating memorable memories together while riding our bikes along this beautiful trail. The trail goes between Newport Beach and Irvine along a beautiful river bed full of plants and wildlife. It is an easy ride that even younger children could easily ride along without having to work too hard to make their way up any steep hills. We started at the corner of Main Street and Park Plaza in Irvine and rode our bikes just a couple of miles to the...
