Dating back to 1967 as one of the original five Villages of Irvine, Turtle Rock was designed to blend into the landscape with a serene winding trail system that links homes to schools. A majestic, 18-hole public course in the Village’s backyard adds to the splendor of Turtle Rock.

Around the Village

Turtle Rock Viewpoint Trail

One of the most popular features of Turtle Rock is the walking trail system - a serene walk with the trailhead beginning at Chaparral Park wraps around the stunning hills in either direction - offering sweeping views of all of Orange County and the Santa Ana Mountains.

On Rockview Drive at the northern end of the neighborhood, now part of an association park, lies a rock that has the shape of the front of a turtle's carapace, and is sacred to the Gabrieleño Native Americans. It is often locally considered to be the origin of the name "Turtle Rock."
