There are a variety of land managers that steward the various natural lands in our area and provide managed access for trail enthusiasts. Included in the table below are some of the larger (in terms of staffing or acreage) and more well known land managers in the Orange County region. When available we’ve provided a link to the land managed by that entity. Please phone or visit the website if you are planning an excursion so you can understand the hours, conditions, and permitted outdoor opportunities.  Be advised, in some instances the only access offered on the property or on certain trails is during scheduled tours.
