Nestled in the heart of Bommer Canyon is part of the old Irvine Ranch Cattle Camp. Some of the original structures exist today, adding to the rustic feel of the canyon. Bommer Canyon Community Park is also an important preservation area for many local plants and wildlife, including several endangered species.
Trails are open for hiking, mountain biking and horse-back riding. Please note that only some trails are open to the public for self-guided daily access while others are restricted to docent-led activities due to sensitive habitat. Dogs are not permitted on trails in Bommer Canyon, but they are permitted on City of Irvine's Quail Hill Loop Trail. View a map and directions to Bommer Canyon Trailhead here.

Available for Reservations:
Bommer Canyon Cattle Camp must be reserved as a whole; individual amenities within the camp cannot be rented on their own. The fifteen-acre facility includes picnic tables sheltered by a lush sycamore canopy and lots of open space. For more information, visit the Cattle Camp reservations webpage.
Please note: The park's traditional reservation season is April–October. The City of Irvine is in the process of refreshing the Bommer Canyon Cattle Camp site, and reservations are not being accepted through 2019. Learn more about the Bommer Canyon Community Park Rehabilitation Project here.
