Orange County Coast

Reviewed By Smithysfishing - Buddina, Australia

Over our 2.5 week stay with friends in Huntington beach we did all the beaches from Long Beach to Laguna Beach and took the train from Santa Ana to Oceanside so we pretty much saw all the beaches down to San Diego. It was good to check out all the scenery in OC to compare to the old TV show. We found ourselves having a quick look on Youtube of old episodes and comparing. All nice wide beaches compared to Australian beaches. Lots of intrastructure with volleyball courts, etc, etc along the whole coast compared to home.

This park is a really nice one, pretty large and with good parking. Inside this park you can find the OC Zoo, an equestrian center, many picnic areas, a little lake and some more attractions. They have a farmer market once a week and always events and games set up for all the holidays during the year.

When we arrived we saw a reservoir. It was so beautiful. We found a place for hiking and we walked near the reservoir. We saw yellow flowers. There were cacti and ducks in the reservoir. A must see!

Black Star Canyon Trail

Reviewed By VeganVacation - Orlando, United States

Takes about 4 hours total there and back if you take your time. First half is flat, the second half you’re climbing over rocks and boulders along side a creek leading up to a beautiful waterfall. The hike was fun and gorgeous. People had dogs with them, and people of all ages were able to make it to the waterfall.
