Fun trail that connects Corona del Mar to Newport Coast. Mostly easy flowing singletrack with 3 narrow metal bridges that cross over a stream. Due to easy access from close-by neighborhoods this is a very popular trail for hiking, so keep an eye out for other trail-goers. The trail is maintained regularly, including fixing ruts, sandy sections, and cutting overgrowth so the trail is almost always in pristine condition. As of October 2019, this trail is now one way - uphill only

      The city recently added steep bumps to help water flow off the trails, but double as large speed bumps. Be careful on blind downhill sections,...

       Tried to ride the trail today and found out entry from San Juaquin is only uphill for bikes. Must enter at 5th and Poppy.
