Dedicated in January 2015, the Jeffrey Open Space Trail completes a 28-mile loop across Irvine, mostly off-road. This is the ideal all-morning excursion for those who don’t want to ride in traffic.
Start at the Civic Center. Try the ride clockwise where you’ll ride up the sidewalk along MacArthur Blvd to the San Diego Creek Trail, the Peters Canyon Trail and eventually the Hicks Canyon Trail. When you arrive at Portola Parkway turn right for one block and enter the J.O.S.T. The ride home follows the Sand Canyon Trail to Quail Hill then Shady Canyon and along San Miguel Drive.
