One of the greatest things about living in Irvine is the vast amount of spaces there are available in this city. It’s normal to find empty open fields in Irvine and as an advent jogger, I love having a number of options of places to choose from to jog (especially a nice view to ogle). Here are my top paths to jog in my area:
William Mason Regional Park: This park is well-maintained. A perfect place if you’d like to celebrate birthday parties. For me, I made great use of the space and enjoyed my time doing my morning run. I like that the jogging paths are quiet and if you go early enough, it feels like you’re completely alone. The park has bbq spots, a lake, covered gazebos and a few ducks and turtles. Parking is around $3 weekdays and $5 on the weekends.
Quail Hill Trail Head
The ultimate serenity. You’ll like this place if you long for something quieter and if you’re into nature. This is the place to be!
We're loving how green things are around Southern California right now! Thanks to @micktographer for this awesome shot of the Quail Hill Trailhead in Irvine! Monday, temperatures will hover near 60 degrees with a possibility of scattered showers in L.A. and Orange counties, and also in the valleys, beaches and Inland Empire.

My go to jog trail. The lake stretches to the north side lined with trees and beautiful homes. I can’t get enough of the view of the lake.
Hicks Canyon Regional Trail
A quiet and peaceful private local trail. It runs through some neighborhood and you can take either the dirt or paved path. I personally like the dirt path. There’s also nice shades, an underground tunnel and definitely nothing too strenuous.
