Third Virtual Hike Launched for July in
Aliso & Wood Canyons Wilderness Park

Join us for a hike in the Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park on Saturday, July 10th at 9 AM by Zoom. Participants will enjoy the scenery of this large and unique park. The virtual hike will engage us with vistas that include Aliso Creek, the new Visitor Center, trailheads and connections. We will focus on the opportunities to enjoy this park from easy family strolls to the steep trails through dense trees and coastal sage scrub. In addition, participants will learn about access, preparing for a visit, and the many parts of the park that offer fun hiking. So sit back, watch from the comfort of your home and we’ll show you this fine park – via Zoom! This event will include regular audience participation to keep everyone engaged! There will be time available for questions and we can “stay late” to answer them if needed.

Pilot Program Launched by
OC Parks to Improve Trail Safety

To help curb poor trail behavior, reduce trail conflicts, and alleviate risky situations between visitors, OC Parks is implementing a Trail Pilot Program that impacts three parks. The program began on June 1st and will likely last three months. The three parks under study include Aliso & Wood Canyons Wilderness Park, Laguna Coast Wilderness Park, and Santiago Oaks Regional Park. Details can be found on the OC Parks website, on the Trail Use Pilot Program with sample trail signage. Stay tuned, be aware, and follow the rules to keep everyone safe. Keeping our trails safe for people while simultaneously protecting resources is the goal of the Safe Trails Coalition, which is why we are hoping to get the word out to as many people as possible about these park/trail changes. Please do your part to keep the trails safe and the resources protected.
