Peters Canyon Hike (6PM: Level 3 - 6:30PM: Level 1+/2)

  • May 23, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Peters Canyon Meetup


***NO PARKING ZONE and Driving Direction: see below FYI***










This is a nice hike, a great exercise outdoor at sunset with fresh air instead of being in gym. This is a dog friendly trail

***We have two groups. Please indicate when sign up if you will come at 6:30PM. Click on RATING TABLE to learn more about difficulty levels***

Distance/Elevation/Duration: 4.5+ miles, <1000ft, 70 min-2 hours. 

Group 1 will meet at 6:00 PM: Level 3 for fast pace ~ 3.5mph. If a group likes to go an extra 1.5 miles to side of the lake (clockwise) and back for couple more steep hills. This route will take total about to 1.5 hours.

Group 2 will meet at 6:30 PM: Level 1+/2  for moderate pace (2-2.5 mph). If a group likes to go an extra 1.5 miles to side of the lake (clockwise) and back for couple more steep hills. This route will take total about to 2 hours.

  • Let's plan on meeting at the back end of the park to make a more interesting hike and to avoid the parking fee. The pace will be moderate to fast. It feels like roller coaster on this hike. We will start at Eucalyptus trail and going up hill to the lake and hike back
  • Trail shoes with great traction are recommended as it is more comfortable hiking on hills. Bring water

Sometimes you may get a ticket if you park in the zone "NO PARKING anytime" Try to come early or park at Cedar Grove Park parking***
1. From the 5 Freeway- exit Tustin Ranch Road and head towards the foothills and drive approx. 3 miles. Get in the left hand lane and take a left on Pioneer WAY (signal). Now get into the right lane and take the next right on Pioneer ROAD (signal). This road will wind around Cedar Grove Park. Continue to the first stop sign and take a left on Peters Canyon Road (stop sign). Take this road down around a little curve and park on the right side of the curb at the end of the road. We will meet at the sign for Peter's Canyon Trail.

2. Another location for parking: Park in North Tustin. Address: 2158 Lower Lake Dr. , Santa Ana, CA 92705 Parking is on the parking lot or on the street

From North or Central OC, take the 55 Frwy exit Chapman Ave in Orange, go toward the mountains for 2.2 miles, then turn right on S. Crawford Canyon Rd for about 1 mile, then left onto Newport Blvd, then right onto Cowen Heights Dr, right onto Skyline Dr, then left onto Lemon Heights and continue to Lower Lake Dr.

    Ah, I missed the whole group and which direction that Lewis and Glenn took the slow pace on the way back? Yes, the moon definitely was smiling to me because my group was "gone". As mentioned I took the flat in hope to see you, but didn't see anyone, so I came up hill and made a loop back. I should have done the opposite...oh well...a silent treatment with my lovely moon and hope you all had a great week then!
