Live Oak Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"The Live Oak Trail is a combination of wide foot trail and fire road in the western section of O’Neill Regional Park. This hike traverses some of the less traveled and most scenic areas of the park. Despite the trail’s proximity to residential development, within minutes from your car you will find yourself in open woodland and grassy meadows. Over the course of 1.5 miles, you climb 600 feet to a spectacular summit and observation point.

From the end of Meadow Ridge, turn left (east) down a paved and dirt service road that provides access to a nursery. A trail sign marks the beginning of the hike. For a few hundred yards, the trail proceeds between the rear of residences and the nursery, but it soon breaks out into the open hills. A short, steep section of winding trail heads up and over a small hill. Here the coastal woodland is thick with plants and trees. Live oak and toyon (with its characteristic red berries) dominate."

"Located in O'Neill Regional Park in southern Orange County. Highlights: This is a fun short ride with good singletrack. Hazards: This is the heart of Orange County mountain lion country. Basic day-use fees are $2 a day during the week, $4 a day during the weekend, and $5-$10 during holidays. There are additional fees for camping and horses."
