O’Neill Regional Park is situated in the beautiful Trabuco and Live Oak Canyons. The park is heavily wooded with coast live oak and sycamore trees. The hillsides surrounding the park are filled with cactus, wild buckwheat, sagebrush and chaparral of scrub oak, buckthorn and mountain mahogany.
We will start from the Live Oak Trail and take a vista break at the Vista Point. Then we will proceed to the picnic tables near the entrance of O’Neill Park. We will have a snack and restroom is available there. Then we will take the Coyote Canyon Trail to connect with Live Oak Trail and return to our cars.
