Twilight Hike: Fremont Canyon OC Parks - Irvine Ranch Open Space
Come enjoy a challenging scenic twilight hike in the remote Fremont Canyon Nature Preserve. Our hike climbs steeply from the mouth of Fremont Canyon, past an abandoned coal mine, up to the Fremont Weather Station where winds have been clocked at up to 100 mph. After enjoying the view, we’ll turnaround and hike back the same way to our starting point.
This hike involves steep hills and a 1200’ elevation change. The rewards are sweeping views at the magic hour of twilight, just before and after sunset.
Please come prepared with a sturdy day pack, water, snacks, closed-toe hiking shoes or boots, sunscreen, first aid, and all other supplies to keep you safe and healthy on the trail.
Each participant must carry his or her own day pack and water and be comfortable hiking an average moving pace of 3 miles per hour. Please make sure you have a minimum of 70oz. (2 quarts) of water. Under prepared participants may be denied access to this program.
