Thursday Morning Trek: Limestone Canyon and Dripping Springs

Hiking & Fitness

This week in the Irvine Ranch Open Space, we’ll hike in Limestone Canyon to Dripping Springs. The hike is 7 miles and includes some hills. We will hike up Hicks Haul Road and across East Loma before descending to Dripping Springs. After enjoying some time viewing the springs, we will hike back to the staging area via Limestone Canyon. Please bring water, a trail snack, sun screen, hat, and any other necessary equipment to keep you safe on the trail, and wear sturdy, closed-toe hiking shoes or boots.

Participants must be able to hike 7 miles with an elevation gain of 1300 feet at an average moving rate of 3 miles per hour. Each hiker must carry his/her own water and supplies. Reviewing the 1-through-5 Difficulty Ratings will help you evaluate your readiness to participate in this level-4 activity on the land.
