***This is an intermediate hike and is not for beginners. If you are an especially fast, or slow hiker, this may not be the hike for you. We stay together as a group and wait at junctions and hilltops to ensure the group stays together.***

Distance / Time: 9+ miles / 3 - 3 1/2 hours

Departure Time: 7:30 AM. This hike will start at the designated time. Please arrive 10 minutes early to allow for parking and introductions.

About this Hike: This 9+ mile hike will be mostly along the ridges, which are the border of the Crystal Cove Park hiking trails. Well hike down No Name and No Dogs Trails to the ranger station and then cut across to the BFI that you all know and love. Well climb BFI to Morro Ridge and proceed back north to the fence line trails returning us to our starting point. We will hike as a group at a moderate pace and will wait at trail junctions and hilltops to ensure the group stays together. At this time of year, weather can vary, so dress in layers and bring plenty of water, hat and sunscreen. There is a restroom/snack break at the ranger station about 3 1/2 mile into the hike.

Directions: From Newport Coast Drive turn east on Ridge Park. Continue on Ridge Park to the end, just past E. Coastal Peak. Park at the dead end of Ridge Park, or on E. Coastal Peak. The trail head is at the gate at the end of Ridge Park.
