The Turtle Rock Trail is a 1.6 mile hike that is easily accessible from Irvine featuring stunning views in every direction. The trail is shared by hikers, dog walkers and trail runners.

The view from the top is amazing, with ocean views to the West and mountain views to the North. This is a great location for a picnic lunch or a sunset picnic dinner. After sunset, the skyline twinkles with city lights. 

It is recommended to park near the tennis courts. The trail remains open year round.
