Overview

This popular route is a great way to get a strenuous workout in, all while enjoying the outdoors and reaching a scenic summit.

Description

The trail is short but it's a steep climb to the goal - the American flag topped peak. From the small parking area on Robinson Ranch Road, you'll find yourself on the Bell View Trail. The trail is very rocky so wear shoes with good traction.

There are beautiful views of the Santa Ana Mountains and the ocean on a clear day. Once you reach the flag, you can turn around and come back the way you came.

Continuing along the Bell View Trail will eventually lead to Los Pinos Peak.
