The Hills of Turtle Rock Trail - Intermediate level (4 miles)

  • Turtle Rock

    1 Concordia, Irvine, CA (map)

    33.650043 -117.815567

  • Meet on Concordia W and Turtle Rock, at the base of French Hill.
  • This is an intermediate-level conditioning hike!  This hike is composed of a looped route with a mix of trails and sidewalk/bike paths, along with some not too long but fairly steep hills. The two popular hills: French Hill (300 ft elevation gain) and Suicide Hill (500 ft. elevation gain) at Turtle Rock.  This loop, which uses some city streets, single-track dirt trails and a fair amount of climbing, is one of several possible routes that visit the two summits. 

    A good pair of hiking shoes, a snack, and plenty of water is highly recommended.  

    I must stress this is *not* a beginner hike as there is some steep climbing involved, especially at the beginning!

    ***The trail is dog friendly.***
