A beautiful and scenic 5 mile trail run through O'Neil Regional Park.

Overview

Orange County's Hidden Gem! O'Neill Regional Park is a beautiful park with extensive trails available! Great parking and restrooms, and a playground at the main entrance.

Description

From O'Neill Regional Park Group Area 2&3, head out on the road towards the park entrance/ranger station. Turn left up the park road (the ranger station should be on your right-hand side). Turn left at the second road. Turn left to get on Coyote Trail, which begins your journey on the trails.

The first two miles of the trail are the hardest part, with several moderate-to-difficult climbs. Almost all of your elevation gain in the first two miles! Once you get on Coyote Trail, which is a short singletrack, you'll get on Paw Foot/Live Oak which is a wide fire road. The trail straightens out, and you can see beautiful views from the top! Stay on Live Oak Canyon, turning left at the intersection of Live Oak/Coyote Run. Here you'll have a steep climb, where you'll see the water station (at approximately mile 2).

From the water station, continue another short climb to the top, and proceed down Vista Trail, a windy, singletrack trail that is a nice change from the uphill climb! At the bottom of the hill, you’ll turn right on Hoffman Homestead, a shaded singletrack trail. When you exit Hoffman Homestead (approximately mile 4) take a left turn onto the road, followed by another immediate right turn. Follow the signs to turn right to head up Live Oak Road for the last climb of the run!

The first two and a half miles are a pretty good climb! But for being close to town it feels pleasantly secluded. 5.3mi
