FAQs About the Oso Creek Trail:

The Oso Creek Trail is located in Mission Viejo, California.  This beautiful creek naturally flows from north of the Santa Ana Mountains and eventually joins Trabuco Creek in flowing to the Pacific Ocean. The Oso Creek Trail contains 5.5 miles of trails, and the word Oso means BEAR in Spanish. Many beautiful mosaic and metal bears are located throughout the parkland.  

The Oso Creek Trail started in April 1997 as a community collaboration where volunteers gathered in late spring to celebration the Earth and the arts of Mission Viejo.  The goal of the community efforts is to produce a long-term benefit for many future generations to enjoy.  The trail has been developed with numerous amenities and features that serve to educate and honor the community.  These features include the Peace Obelisk to honor the victims of 9/11, the mosaic history walls in the Character Garden, the vibrantly painted butterflies, the Celebration Garden, the Wave Wall on the Upper Oso Creek Trail, and the community murals surrounding the Village Green.
