Loma Ridge--SCHEDULED PROGRAMS ONLY--
Loma Ridge marks the northern viewshed of the City of Irvine and is the first set of foothills leading up to the Santa Ana Mountains. The area is both admired and respected for its elevation gain - it features a more than 400-foot ascent in less than half a mile, with an even steeper initial grade. The payoff? Spectacular views of Irvine and the entire coastal plain along with cool breezes in the grassland, shady woodland and coastal sage scrub habitats.
