(Orange County, Calif.) – Join OC Parks on Thursday, October 18 at 10 a.m. in celebration of Aliso Creek Regional Trail’s official designation as a National Recreational Trail.
The Aliso Creek Regional Riding and Hiking Trial was recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Interior as an exemplary local and regional trail as part of America’s national system of trails. Currently, the Aliso Creek Regional Trail is 15 miles of asphalt bikeway designed for varied recreational activities including hiking, bicycling, walking, running, birdwatching and horseback riding. The trail traverses five south county cities, extending from the foothills of Orange County to the boundary of Laguna Beach. It links six schools, a community church, two skate parks, and ten community parks together and offers a wide variety of geography throughout.
The designation celebration on October 18 will begin at the rest area located off of El Toro Road between Portola Parkway and Marguerite Parkway in Lake Forest. Participants are invited to walk, bike or horseback ride on the dynamic trail. A special sign will be unveiled at 10 a.m. designating the Aliso Creek Regional Trail as a National Recreation Trail.
