In the land of multiple freeway lanes and mega shopping malls, Irvine Regional Park is an unexpected oasis of calming nature for dogs, horses, and their human companions to replenish their spirits. Horseshoe Loop’s ridgeline boasts views across the chaparral foothills and over the park’s oak- and sycamore- studded greenbelts. The loop’s seasonal creek- fed riparian woodlands offer a pleasing contrast to the park’s arid plateau.
