Aliso Creek Riding and Hiking Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Aliso Creek Sneak is a “sneaky” tour of the communities along Aliso Creek, in that use of the Aliso Creek Bikeway allows one to “sneak” through several cities without ever seeing much motor vehicle traffic (or, at times, not really knowing where one is relative to the outside world). The ride is 24.5 miles in length, out-and-back on a single bikeway, with an extension into Aliso and Wood Canyons Regional Park along a limited-access park road. Any portion of the ride would be suitable for children."
--Wayne D. Cottrell , Best Bike Rides Orange County, California (Falcon Guides).
"The Aliso Creek Trail, designated a National Recreation Trail in 2012, is another long-distance urban trail through Orange County. It follows Aliso (Spanish for “alder”) Creek from its seasonal headwaters at the foot of the Santa Ana Mountains down to Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park, where the trail ends at a private property boundary just before reaching the Pacific Ocean."
--Jerry Schad and David Money Harris, Afoot & Afield: Orange County (Wilderness Press).
