Since it's finally sunny and back in the 70's, I thought I'd treat myself to a nice, long hike. I chose the Rattlesnake Ridge Trail in Crystal Cove State Park.
I started at the Ridge Park Trailhead, took Bommer Ridge, turned right on Red Tail Ridge and forked right to Ticketron, hung a left at No Name Ridge, then left back up Rattlesnake Ridge. The climbs were tough, the views spectacular and all is right in the world when I'm out on the trails.
I'm always looking for great hikes in the Irvine/Orange County area. If you have one you love in the area, share it in the comments below, I'd love to hear from you!
