Yesterday, the 17th of October. A couple of friends and I were lucky enough to join the members of OC Parks and IRC on a docent led hike to the Red Rocks of Black Star Canyon. They were extremely friendly and very knowledgeable of the land, plants, and history of the canyon.

The park is currently only open for guided tours on select days but will eventually open to the public and will be known as Black Star Canyon Wilderness Park and will span about 2,000 acres.

Due to time limitations we were not able to view the whole park. The hike was scheduled for 2 hours and with 4 stops along the way we only made it about a mile or so into the canyon.

The park itself is plentiful with plant life and signs of wildlife as well. There is also a Golden Eagles Nest on the cliff side, though there was no sign of the eagle, it was still a sight to see.

I look forward to the opening of this wilderness park and I want to thank OC Parks and IRC for their very informative tour.
