Bommer Canyon


Rich in both Irvine Ranch lore and nature’s wonders, Bommer Canyon beckons walkers, hikers and all other outdoor enthusiasts to stroll past ancient oak and sycamore groves and rough rock outcrops. Much like the City’s Quail Hill Loop Trail specific trails in this area are open daily for self-guided hikes from dawn to dusk; however, other areas within Bommer can only be accessed through guided programs and do require pre-registration. Monthly Wilderness Access Days are available to allow hikers and bikers the chance to explore the network of outstanding trails and views of the area.

A wide variety of activities are offered by the City of Irvine in partnership with the Irvine Ranch Conservancy.


The following seven-day access trails within the City of Irvine Open Space Preserve have been temporarily converted to one-way use for all users. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

  • Bommer Meadow⁣⁣⁣⁣
  • Nature Loop⁣⁣⁣⁣
  • Bommer Pass⁣⁣⁣⁣
  • Quail Hill Loop⁣⁣⁣⁣

The Bommer Meadow, Nature Loop, and Bommer Pass trails will have a one-way direction heading South from the Bommer Canyon Trailhead, with a return route on Bommer Canyon Road. Quail Hill Loop will be one-way only in the clockwise direction. Signage will be posted on the trails. The policy will apply to all users in order to allow for appropriate social distancing.
