HIKE - 9/22/17 Buck Gully Reserve - Newport Beach
The route is the Lower Loop of a 4.5 mile route (sort of lollipop shaped) with an elevation change of 560 feet. We will cross all 4 bridges on this hike while exploring this hidden gem.

From the Irvine Ranch Conservatory website: "Be inspired by both the natural beauty and recent history of Buck Gully. The Buck Gully Reserve is a natural, coastal canyon in the City of Newport Beach. In May of 2012, the 300 acre Buck Gully Reserve was officially opened to the public after trail improvements had been made, which included the installation of four bridges. The bridges allow exploration of the entire Buck Gully Reserve, and also provide unique vantages and viewing platforms from which to pause and observe the abundant life in and around the stream that runs through the gully year-round.”

Here's the link to park in the lot across the street from the Oasis Senior Center, a couple of blocks from the trailhead: http://irlandmarks-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/Buck-Gully-5th_Marguerite.pdf
