"Where nature and neighborhoods meet"

When we lived in Newport Coast we frequently drove through the Turtle Rock, a secluded community secluded in the San Joaquin Hills, in order to get to other parts of central and south Orange County. Set among rolling hills, it’s obvious that Turtle Rock was envisioned around nature preserves and hiking trails. .We often took advantage of the wonderful trail system that weaves through Turtle Rock. The trails would lead to secluded hilltops with panoramic views and also take us from one park in Turtle Rock to another. It is really an amazing trail system.

At one time we did explore the neighborhoods of Turtle Rock as a possible place to live. The location is ideal as it sits right at the center of Orange County and has great access to the 73 Toll Road and the 405 freeway. The only downside we saw was that there was not any immediate access to any significant shopping center.

We were impressed with the number of parks that were built in the community. The largest, Turtle Rock Community park is very inviting and somewhat secluded so it seems to only attract the locals. Each neighborhood is anchored by a smaller park several with community pools and picnic areas.

It seems that Turtle Rock, a community with several neighborhoods, was designed for pedestrian travel between the neighborhoods. There are several tunnels that link the trails with different neighborhoods. Even the schools can be easily accessed by the trails.
