Grab your bikes, sneakers, hiking shoes and sunscreen because spring is officially here, making it the perfect time to enjoy beautiful Back Bay!

This perfect hiking destination provides something for everyone.  Whether you are looking for a break from working indoors or wanting to take the kids on their first hiking adventure, Back Bay is the perfect spot!

Behind Newport Beach Marriott Bayview, adventure onto the dirt trails.  Perfect for joggers, walkers and bikers, the peaceful pathway is a true escape from hours spent in cars and cubicles.

Stop by the Muth Interpretative Center to learn about the plants and animals that call Back Bay home.  From cacti to sagebrush, squirrels to geese, there is just enough wilderness to make the city feel miles away.  The center is full of wonderful exhibits for the whole family.

Looking outside provides one of the best views Newport Beach has to offer.  With your newfound knowledge, you can conquer the trails like an expert.

Paths never stray too far from the car, so little feet can head back when they begin to tire.  Those looking to hike farther will not be disappointed by the connecting trails that provide the longer walk they crave.

Those wanting to bike or change their view can head to the other side of Back Bay behind the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach.  The paved pathway is ideal for bikers looking to have some fun or serious exercise.  Joggers and walkers will love the new views each turn of the bend reveals.  The serene route makes you feel a world away as you look over the water inhabited by ducks and paddle boarders alike.

Take out your headphones to enjoy the quiet sounds of nature in this secluded pocket.

Those brave enough can connect the two sections with the path from Eastbuff Drive to Jamboree Road.  The ten-mile loop provides a worthy challenge to hikers and bikers ready to go the extra miles.

With beautiful views the whole way, time will fly by while you exercise! When the urge to head to the outdoors strikes, know that Back Bay is waiting for you!
