“The Fox Run Trail was originally very steep and had quite a bit of erosion damage, making it one of the least used trails in the area,” said Adam Maywhort, IRC Director of Planning and Infrastructure. “The newly redone trail meets the criteria for a world class trail and will be an exciting technical route for hikers and especially for mountain bikers.”
“Avid hikers will enjoy this trail due to its challenging nature as a cardio hiking trail,” said Maywhort. “The improved trail is also great for mountain bikers looking for a fun, technical ride. It also gives trail users a great view of the open space surroundings.”
On Saturday, February 19 from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m., the City of Irvine and Irvine Ranch Conservancy will host Wilderness Access Day in Bommer Canyon, where participants will have to opportunity to experience the redone Fox Run Trail. Mountain bikers can prepare for the improved Fox Run Trail and brush-up on mountain biking skills by signing up for an activity at the Portola Staging Area mountain bike skills course.
