Newport Beach,  California
The 10.5-mile loop circles Upper Newport Bay. There are multiple entry points, but we recommend starting at the Vista Point Lookout for the best views. Walk along the bluffs; when you reach Big Canyon, detour off the main path and cross the footbridge. You’ll hit a shaded nature trail alongside a stream that’s known as a hot spot for bird-watching. Bring your binocs.
