Trail shared by Lauren Felix

A short but tough run with great views of south Orange County.

Description

Bell Peak can be as short or as long of a run as you want it to be. The climb starts immediately and only gets more challenging as you climb towards the flag-topped peak. Views of south Orange County from the canyon to the ocean are beautiful on a clear day. You can choose to either make the quick run to Bell Peak or continue all the way to Los Pinos Peak.
