Let's hike at the Back Bay in Newport. The plan is to do 4-5 miles. It will be an out and back.
A lot of the trail is asphalt. You can wear hiking or running shoes.
There is a Upper Newport Back Bay Nature Preserve parking lot right off University Dr. and Irvine Ave. (See Map) If this gets full, there is street parking on University. All parking is free.

Dogs are welcome!
This hike will be about 5.4 miles total with 820 ft. of elevation gain.
We are starting at the parking lot at the Wahoo's parking lot. We will take Live Oak Trail. This turns into Serrano Road which will take us to Serrano Cow Trail. At this part of the trail, we usually see a ton of deer, so cross your fingers! We will get on Sleepy Hollow Trail. This will take us up to Santiago Ranch Road to Cactus Hill. We will take a short break at Four Corners. Then we will come down Whiting Road. Then we will take us back to Serrano Cow Trail and head the same way back to the parking lot.
