Cardio Hike: Agua Chinon

Hiking & Fitness

Come along for a fast-paced hike (3.75-4 miles per hour) along the Agua Chinon and Limestone Canyon trails. The hike winds through the Agua Chinon wash and into Limestone, with breathtaking views of the city of Irvine and the Sinks, and on clear days, views of the ocean and Catalina.

The hike will travel at a very fast pace for a total of 10-12 miles, and includes steep climbs and descents with significant elevation gain (2200 ft. plus). Those in very good physical shape will enjoy this cardio fitness opportunity. Remember to wear appropriate shoes, a hat, sunglasses and bring plenty of water. Hiking poles are welcome as well. Under-prepared participants may be denied access to the event. This activity originates in the City of Irvine and travels into OC Parks’ Limestone Canyon Nature Preserve.

Reviewing the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this level-5 activity on the land.
