"Spin up Arroyo Trabuco to Tijeras Creek. Turn right and follow a satisfying combination of singletrack, dirt roads, and suburban hiking trails all the way to Coto de Caza. Turn left on Plano Trabuco Road and ride down the pavement till you reach the back side of O’Neill Regional Park. The traverse through the regional park runs along groomed, one might say pedestrian, trails. You’ll cross the creek bed near the campsites and then bear left on the Arroyo Trabuco Trail. The path runs gradually downhill all the way back to the trailhead; crank hard and charge through the stream crossings." Read more
