The park has a series of interconnecting trails suitable for hiking, equestrian and mountain bike use. The park trails also connect users to Laguna Beach, Aliso Viejo, Laguna Niguel, and the Santa Ana Mountains. The park was opened to the public in 1990 and now provides a natural history museum with animal exhibits and programs on various natural history topics. Volunteer docent and park improvement projects are available for public participation
