Description

This easy run leads from Bommer Canyon Trail (open from 7 am to 6 pm) to the Nature Trail and Bommer Canyon Community Center (historic Irivine Ranch).

The Trail heads south from the trailhead through Bommer Meadow. At 0.5 miles turn left at the intersection with the Nature Trail to stay on Bommer Meadow Trail, which now parallels the road. The trail ends at 0.8 miles at the Bommer Canyon Community Center.

These are multi-use paths so know the right-of-way rules and be aware of other users. (Bikes yield to hikers, and hikers and bikers both yield to horses).

Thanks to John McKinney, The Trailmaster, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about trails in California, check out his guides at The Trailmaster Store.

Flora & Fauna

Coastal sage scrub, native grasses, oaks and sycamore trees are all common. In the spring, runners will likely see wildflowers such as, Indian paintbrush, Johnny jump-ups, Mariposa lilies, and buttercups.
Also watch out for poison-oak!
Mountain lions, rattlesnakes and ticks are not uncommon.
