Upper Newport Bay TrailThere are numerous interconnected trails throughout Orange County that link our local, regional, state, and federal natural lands and local communities together.   Most trails have a soft surface (with soil or even decomposed granite), but some are paved with asphalt and/or concrete providing smoother access.  These different trail types have potentially differing uses, rules, and attributes.  The County of Orange has published an extensive map of the region’s major trails.

The Safe Trails Coalition encourages everyone to get outdoors, experience our natural lands, and safely enjoy the trails.  All park visitors should respect the rules established for the trails and parks.
