"The San Juan Creek Trail is a paved multiuse path following San Juan Creek from San Juan Capistrano to its mouth at Doheny State Beach. This trail is popular with joggers, cyclists, and families. Equestrians use the upper portion of the trail as far as Trabuco Creek. Many parks along the way offer alternate start or end points, and you may wish to set up a car or bicycle shuttle. You may also wish to use part or all of the trail for a trip to the beach, avoiding the hefty parking fee at Doheny." Read more
