The total mileage for this hike is 5 miles with about 800 ft. of elevation gain.
We will start at the trail head of the Borrego Trail, which is right off of the parking lot. This is where we will meet. We will head up the Borrego Trail until we get to Mustard Road. Here we will turn right. Then we will get onto the Billy Goat Trail. Once that ends, we will turn right to go on Whiting Spur Road. When we get down to Four Corners, we will head back on Mustard Road to Borrego Canyon. From Borrego Trail, we will take this back to the parking lot.
This is a moderate hike in general, but the Billy Goat Trail does pose some difficulty due to it being a bit more narrow and rocky.

The address is: 26701 Portola Parkway, Foothill Ranch, CA 92610
If you have any questions, let me know! I’m looking forward to the hike!
