Oso Creek Trail has a collection of natural and cultural attractions along its banks to make it worth the casual hiker’s while. En route, you’ll encounter a handsome oak grove, a meadow, a butterfly garden and a plant maze. My family’s favorite is a peace obelisk, inscribed with the word “peace” in a dozen languages and displaying hundreds of copper relief peace emblems fashioned by community members. Now there’s something you don’t see very often alongside a trail! Oso Creek Trail is the chief passageway in Mission Viejo’s fledgling trail system. The path links to 2-mile-long Jeronimo Open-Space Trail and connections with Naciente Ridge Trail which, in turn, extends along the ridge by Olympiad Road and eventually descends to Arroyo Trabuco at the city’s eastern boundary.
