The North San Juan Capistrano Steeplechase rides city-owned trails in the northeastern corner of the city, completing a loop by connecting the trails with a couple of bike paths. The ride is not a pure steeplechase, although there are a few barriers that will require dismounting and hurdling for most riders. This is a 12.1-mile counterclockwise loop that features a few short, steep climbs and some panoramic views of San Juan Capistrano. Most of the trails meander between residences in the city’s northeastern hills; it’s easy to accidentally wander onto private property in a few locations, so be mindful of staying on the trails.
