Wilderness Access Days have gained a reputation as “DIY” open space experiences, with the support of friendly volunteers to help you along. However, for those not ready or too young to go it alone, OC Parks is introducing docent-led hikes and kids’ activities during their monthly Wilderness Access Days.
These events are held monthly, switching each month between Limestone Canyon and Black Star Canyon. On Saturday, March 2, the Wilderness Access Day is in Black Star Canyon, beginning at the Baker Canyon Staging Area. These unique outdoor adventures begin with check-in at the staging area, where friendly volunteers from Irvine Ranch Conservancy are on hand to help guide visitors to the right trails for their interest, experience and time available. Volunteers are also stationed out on the trails, to provide assistance along the way.
