    Wow. I don't whats been wrong with me. I've seen/passed by this trail on numerous occasions. Its taken me about 2 years to check it out, but I'm glad I finally did. There is a trail head at Bommer Vista Point which is at 340 Summit Park Drive in Irvine, CA. There is a very small parking lot - 6 spaces (1 for disabled), along with restrooms and a water fountain. For the first 3/4 mile or so, the trail follows the ridge and the edge of a housing tract. But soon there is a short climb as you crest the hill, and then after that the downhill begins. Basically, the trails winds down the side of the hill into a canyon, with numerous switchbacks. There are some slightly rocky sections, as well as a couple of tight turns - with some exposure/drop-off - that will keep your attention, but for the most part, you can swoop down, blast through the turns, then enjoy a straight run before another turn. Horses are not allowed on this trail, so you don't have to worry about them - but there are usually other trail users - walkers/hikers, trail runners, so please slow down and be considerate. The trail ends when you reach the bottom, you can either climb out by going up West Fork (www.singletracks.com/bike-trails/west-fork-.html) back to Ridge Park or continue on via Bommer Pass & Bommer Meadow to Shady Canyon etc. I'll definitely be riding this trail again!
