Orange County is more than just beaches, it's also a great hiking destination, with everything from ocean-view hikes to mountain hikes. A private guided hiking tour in Orange County is the perfect way to do a hike. Just let your guide handle the harder aspects of the hike, and you can just enjoy all the beauty that the Orange County hike has to offer. I offer customized, private guiding hiking tours and trips to small groups in and around the Orange County area.
If you are looking to do a guided hiking tour in Orange County, we can customize a hike for you based on you schedule, fitness level, and interests. Here are some hiking trip ideas to get you started.
Ocean Views at Crystal Cove State Park
Crystal Cove State Park in Laguna Beach is one of my most popular guided hike destinations. There are lots of trail options to customize a hike exactly how you want it. Abundant wildlife, great views, and a nice workout, there’s something for everyone here.
Want to hike to one of the mountains that forms the backdrop of Orange County without a super-human effort? Then Sitton Peak is your move. We can generally do guided hikes in a half a day to the peak, and you’ll get great views of the surrounding Cleveland National Forest, and on a clear day will be able to see to Catalina. It’s a safe and family friendly peak.
It’s the big mountain that looms over Orange County: Santiago Peak, the southern point of Saddleback Mountain. If you live in Orange County, you’ve probably hiked this or always wanted to. This challenging all-day guided hike will be one that you never forget.
For a unique overnight trip experience, I take a few groups to overnight on Modjeska Peak. The summit is primitive and camping friendly, and you’ll have views that tower over all of Orange and Riverside Counties.
