CANCELLED due to Trail Conditions: Agua Chinon Hike to The Sinks

Come out and join us on a breathtaking hike into Limestone Canyon Nature Preserve, part of OC Parks’ Irvine Ranch Open Space. The hike originates in the City of Irvine, and then heads into the Agua Chinon wash, continues to The Sinks, and may include a side trip to Box Springs, a natural year-round source of fresh water. Maximum distance is just short of 7 miles, with some sustained climbing in one section. Participants must wear sturdy, closed-toe hiking shoes. Remember to pack plenty of water, sunscreen, a hat, and all other necessary equipment to keep you safe on the trail.
