The trails are open and this hike is a go for tomorrow morning. It's going to be a beautiful, crisp, clear morning. The are hundreds of you listing hiking as an interest, so come on out and join us.

PLEASE take a few minutes to get familiar with where we are parking.

How many of you knew that there are NATURAL Lakes in The OC? I'm not talking about a lake on the golf course, or the one with the fountain those damn kids keep pouring laundry detergent in at the condo complex down the street. I'm talking natural.

Me either.

Anyways, We will go and check out these lakes and more on this hikes. Expect the hike to be just about 4 miles in duration. With the exception of what looks like one decent hill, this should be a relatively easy hike. I'm sure I will provide some boring and uninteresting little history facts along the way as usual.

Directions to trailhead: From the San Diego Freeway (405) in Irvine, exit onto the Laguna Freeway (133), which soon becomes Laguna Canyon Road. Drive south 6 miles to the signed entrance for James Dilley Preserve on the left (east) side of the road and park in the dirt lot. The preserve entrance is just north of San Joaquin Hills Transportation Corridor (toll road). ---DO NOT PARK AT THE NIX NATURE CENTER---Go up another mile and When you reach the stop light at the corridor make a U turn and the lot will be immediately on the right.

Please note the parking info at this link...we will be meeting in the DP parking lot. Parking is $3 at the meter in the lot.

As usual - water and sun protection is a must. See y'all there.

Get Out There, Orange County - Let's explore the areas we drive past all the time.
