Review

Intro

Marian Bear Memorial Park is located in San Clemente Canyon, and offers 467 acres of land to explore, ranging from easier paths around the park to more challenging finger canyons to mesa tops. The park is a convenient place to feel like you are getting away from the surrounding urban areas, even for just an hour or two. 

What Makes It Great

This 6-mile round trip in Marian Bear Memorial Park is a fun, easy-to-moderate trail run, and provides a great workout. The tree and vegetation-lined path will make you forget that you are technically in between several neighborhoods and urban areas.

The trail is mainly singletrack and dirt, with some rocky sections, and it takes you through a wooded area in the center of the canyon. The route varies in time to complete depending on your skill level.

Who is Going to Love It

Beginners will definitely enjoy this trail, but more experienced runners shouldn't expect a simple walk in the park; there are plenty of side trails leading off to side canyons, which can add to trail length and will pose more of a challenge.
