Slow-Paced Fitness Hike on Paved Hicks Haul Road

Irvine Open Space Preserve

Hicks Haul Road – Jeffrey

Irvine Ranch

letsgooutside.org/activities/2015/04/23/slow-paced-fitness-hike-paved-hicks-haul-road-66/

Enjoy an evening fitness hike through stunning rock formations and fragrant native plants as you listen to the sounds of nature. This hike is done at your own pace as a walk, jog, or run (speed range typically 2.5 to 3.5 mph), so is suitable for beginners who are just starting their fitness program as well as more experienced hikers who are looking for a workout. This out-and-back program travels the 3.5 mile route to scenic Loma Ridge (450′ elevation gain) and back down, with most participants completing the route in about 1.5 hours. The hike is family-friendly, but children must be closely supervised by an adult and able to hike with the group, or be safely carried by a strong adult or secured in a jogging stroller. This free hike runs 6:00pm – 8:00pm for ages 12 and up. Register online. Driving directions emailed upon registration.
