Second Annual Wilderness Celebration

For those of you looking for a fun event the people at OC Parks and the Irvine Ranch Conservancy are having the second annual wilderness celebration on July 28th. It looks like a great opportunity to get out and hike in some of Orange County's pristine wilderness areas. Picture above provided by the people at OC Parks.


(Irvine, Calif.) – OC Parks and Irvine Ranch Conservancy are pleased to present the second anniversary celebration of the Irvine Ranch Open Space on Saturday, July 28 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will feature self-guided hiking, biking, docent-led hikes, and a special recognition ceremony.

Event attendees will have the opportunity to explore historic Black Star Canyon and the new trails in Baker Canyon. This stunning landscape is known for soaring sandstone cliffs, Red-tailed hawks flying overhead, majestic panoramas of the Santa Ana Mountains, and diverse sage scrub and chaparral habitats with rare species of plants and animals. Hiking routes of various skill levels and distances will be open including new trail loops. Children can also enjoy the trails with a wilderness themed craft area and an easy nature loop walk.

The second annual wilderness celebration is free to the public and also offers free parking. Pre-registration is encouraged by visiting:

Refreshments will be available along with a community partner fair to enjoy. Dogs are not permitted at this event. Pets are not allowed in the Irvine Ranch Open Space both for the safety of the pet and the local wildlife.
