"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." Read more
