“A combination of single and doubletrack that is easy and challenging.”— Tina Bach
Parking costs $3 for day use if you don't have an annual pass. Check here for information on annual passes.
The Upper Laurel Canyon Trail is easier, and continues to climb up and out of the canyon before heading back underneath the 73 Toll Road where it leaves you at the start of the the Serrano Ridge Trail (which is part of the adjacent Irvine Open Space Preserve). Upper Laurel Canyon Trail and Serrano Ridge are both doubletrack and not very steep.
Stay on Serrano Ridge Trail until about the 6.5 mile mark where you'll see the sign post for the Little Sycamore Canyon Trail on the right. Little Sycamore Canyon Trail is quite a challenge as the upper portion is fairly washed out, gravelly, and steep. About halfway down the hill it gets a lot tamer and easier to run.
