Homestead-Blue Ridge Trail

Good hike with some variety. Shady areas, some rocks to climb over on the ridge, switch backs too. Definitely not the easiest hike, but do-able if you're in average shape.

4 to 5 hours up to the pass.... With time to stop, take in the scenery and enjoy a sandwich at the top...... I'll be back

The lake is beautiful, and the hike is really fun with all the granite steps and such. It is really crowded, and parking is terrible. ! But worth going to see. Wish we would have had more time to explore around the lake.

Really easy to get to the falls. Lots of people, even early in the season. Pretty little waterfall.

Mission Viejo's Oso Creek - Oso Creek Trail
by

6 Completed 4 Reviews

We started out in the parking lot of the senior center - easy, shaded parking. We walked NE on the trail following Jeronimo Rd on the left and Oso Creek on the right up to the "top" (~200ft gain) where you almost intersect Olympiad Rd. We made a loop back to our starting place by coming back down the hill on the other side of the creek where Oso Creek was on our right and homes were on our left. The trail is completely paved, wide and easy. The trail is dog friendly. There is one street crossing. About half the trail was in the morning sun and the other half was shaded - bring sunscreen and water.

To clarify the directions: Follow Bear Creek Road past where it makes that 90-degree left turn at the campground, a little ways after that you make a right onto a comparatively well-graded fire road. It comes to a 4-way intersection of more fire roads where you keep going straight, then make the first right onto a more narrow road that is overgrown with manzanita. You should eventually see a brown plastic trail marker on the right (if I remember right).
MyTopo seems to have the only overlay that shows it: http://www.mytopo.com/maps/?lat=38.8401&lon=-120.7610&z=14
The trail is the dashed line that ends at Rock Creek and Harrick's Ravine. Contrary to what it shows, the trail actually begins on the west side of the road and the road actually continues a little ways past the trailhead.

Really great workout did the 9.2 mile loop. Bring lots of water, sunscreen and hat. There is no shade. One big suggestion of you are going to be doing this loop whether you are starting by the ocean or the ridge....travel this loop clockwise. The whole right side of the loop can be a bit unforgiving on the uphill action. I learned the hard way and I'm in pretty good hiking shape.
